Show Project Info Back
Former Electric Substation
Location San Rafael, California, United States
Client Equity Office Properties Trust; City of San Rafael (for creek restoration)
Scope Landscape Architecture
Size 15 acres
The site of the San Rafael Corporate Center is a fifteen-acre former electric substation facility in downtown San Rafael. The project included site remediation, a developed master plan, and full-scope landscape architectural services. The plan consists of five buildings totaling 450,000 square feet. The design concept is that of a village in an urban setting. The conference/reception building, the core of the facility, resembles a town center incorporating a main plaza, parking court and motor entry area to the north and a terrace overlooking a large green park and amphitheater. The Mahon Creek and wetlands to the south of the site have been restored as part of the City of San Rafael’s redevelopment effort.
