The La Jolla Commons Office Tower is a 13-story, 312,000-square-foot office tower and was a joint venture between managing partner Hines and TIAA-CREF, a leading financial services organization. The building’s exterior is predominately a glass curtainwall system incorporating highly efficient, insulated, double-paned glass with a clear, low-emissive coating. The building’s adjacent parking structure accommodates approximately 1,338 cars. La Jolla Commons Office Tower is a crisp modern design with highly efficient floorplates, state-of-the-art operating systems, extensive campus amenities, panoramic office views and excellent visibility from La Jolla Village Drive and Interstate 805.

This office tower was selected by the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design Core and Shell Committee to be included as a LEED-CS Pilot project — designed to further assist in the development of the LEED system with emphasis on sustainable design and construction strategies within the speculative development market.

The building received Silver pre-certification in the LEED-CS program, but upon completion, the project received LEED-CS Gold certification.
