The California Department of General Services’ Real Estate Services Division was honored with a Best Real Estate Projects of the Year award by the Sacramento Business Journal for their work in overseeing the design and construction of the 1021 O Street State Office Building project.
This award celebrates the highest impact real estate projects of the past 12 months that are bold, creative, forward-thinking and play a critical role in the growth of our region.
The building temporarily houses approximately 1,250 legislative and executive elected officials and staff from the Capitol Annex until the new Annex project is completed. The structure will then be jointly used as office space for legislative and executive employees. The 10-story building is approximately 472,600 gross square feet and incorporates function space for committee hearings, caucus meetings, general meeting rooms, legislative and executive offices, and integrated parking.
At the center of the building, occupants enjoy double-height great rooms with open, interconnecting stairs that serve as zones for social interaction and activation for the users of the building. Adjacent to these great rooms are roof terraces with views of the surrounding city of trees and the State Capitol.
As one of the most sustainable state office buildings to house elected officials in the country, with the goal of LEED Platinum, the building features low water use fixtures, a high-performance building facade, materials with high recycled content, daylighting within office suites, native vegetation on the surrounding site and terraces, as well as LED lighting throughout. In addition, the building is all-electric and is a Zero Net Carbon structure.
