New Silicon Valley Office/R&D Project to Deliver Modified Design Expediting Employee Workplace Re-Entry

SILICON VALLEY, Calif., September 10, 2020 – Lawrence Station, a brand new Class A office/R&D project being constructed in the heart of Silicon Valley, has modified its design to provide a safer and healthier working environment as companies and their employees begin re-entry to the workplace.

Lawrence Station

Owned and developed by Bayview Development Group (BDG), Lawrence Station is a +/- 173,472-square-foot, 5-story Class A office/R&D project located at 3655 Kifer Road in Santa Clara, California.

The project resides at the heart of the emerging urban node catalyzed by the Lawrence Station Area Plan (LSAP) which was jointly adopted in 2016 by Santa Clara and Sunnyvale. Office/R&D, residential and retail have sprouted up around the Lawrence Caltrain Station and the success of the LSAP has led to talks of expanding the LSAP.

Wholly focused on delivering a best-of-class project for the safety and security of its occupants, Lawrence Station features a new state-of-the-art MERV 13 Filtered VRF HVAC System with a dedicated outdoor air system (DOAS) that employs Energy Recovery Ventilation (ERV) providing maximum use of outdoor air with minimized energy costs. The Fan Coil Units (FCUs) can be upgraded with carbon filters and UV (photocatalytic air sanitizer) systems as part of a user’s TI. BDG worked with RMW Architecture and Interiors (RMW) to redesign restrooms for single occupancy use, stairwells for increased usage, and one-way path of travel to facilitate social distancing protocols. BDG swiftly redressed its original occupancy density plans, pivoting from a higher density plan to a lower density plan. Additionally, the building features expansive balconies and outdoor space for employees to work, gather, and enjoy the benefits of fresh air.

Cushman & Wakefield’s Gregory Davies, Brandon Bain, Greg Bennette and Erik Hallgrimson in the firm’s San Jose/Silicon Valley office are handling the leasing efforts for the project. The building can accommodate Silicon Valley’s variety of corporate users from tech to professional to medical device and can be leased to either a single tenant or be divisible to 70,000 square feet. Lawrence Station is estimated to be shell complete by Q4 2020 with occupancy possible by that date.

“Silicon Valley has always been recognized as one of the most innovative places in the world, and Lawrence Station is exemplary of that innovation,” said Gregory Davies. “We are proud to be part of this project and of Bayview and RMW’s expedient redesign and implementation at Lawrence Station which has launched the project to the forefront in helping provide a safer work solution.”

Ted McMahon, Chief Investment Officer of BDG, added, “Other key factors making Lawrence Station so attractive for companies are its central Silicon Valley location and ease of accessibility. Although public transportation, like the nearby CalTrain station, has challenges in the near-term due to the pandemic, public transit will still be a major consideration for employers in the long-term.”
