Faster than any in the city’s history, Presidio Bay obtained entitlements for 85 Bluxome's full-office
use after entering contract in late 2012 under the new West Soma Neighborhood plan. ***work in large Cap prop M allocation**** The project broke ground in
December of 2014, and soon thereafter, the 56,500 square foot Class A office building was pre-leased in its entirety during
construction by Collective Health, Inc., the rapidly growing health benefits solution company looking to relocate headquarters from San
Mateo to San Francisco to accommodate growth and create jobs for its 500 employees. The 85 Bluxome location is less than 200 yards from the CalTrain station.
The building’s design anticipated the construction of the forthcoming Bluxome
park, part of the Central Summit Plan, and incorporated the area’s historic
industrial roots, including hand-crafted entryway woodwork by BUKA design, reminiscent of the street's once-operating train tracks.
In addition to receiving LEED gold certification, 85 Bluxome was also the first
ground up office building to receive WELL certification, setting a new bar for
sustainability standards.The project received NAIOP’s Development of the Year Award in 2015.
