Strategy & Services: Currently under design and construction at the center of Sunnyvale’s tech community, Pathline Park is a 14-building, 1.5M SF development across a 42-acre Silicon Valley campus neighborhood. Involving stok in sustainability planning from the project outset, the Irvine Company began to bring its blended indoor-outdoor, work-play, creativity-industry community vision to life with thoughtful, high performance design. Originally providing an extensive Gap Analysis to outline the master planned office park’s goals, stok helped Irvine Company identify LEED Gold as a certification target across all five phases of development and recommended pursuing LEED Group Certification for each phase as an optimized schedule and budget strategy for a project of its impressive size. stok is currently coordinating the certification across all five concurrent phases, totaling 11 office and 3 amenity buildings including a wellness center and diverse restaurants.
Design Details: Using LEED v2009 Gold as a baseline, the project has continued to champion higher performance beyond v2009 standards wherever possible to help set tenants’ LEED v4 buildouts up for success. Led by stok, these sustainability strategies include high efficiency plumbing fixtures and high performance Viracon glazing on floor-to-ceiling windows throughout to allow for optimized thermal comfort and unobstructed views of the outdoors, boosting productivity and inspiration. Challenging users to “think outside the office”, the 14-building campus is connected by a path of redwoods and unique sculptures, along with a pedestrian promenade and bike path network to encourage collaboration and connection with nature through outdoor interaction.
Irvine Company’s Pathline Park will serve as a powerful advocate for designing for connection between the built and natural environment, with human experience at the center.
Outcome: With two buildings turned over to occupants and another phase in permitting with a tenant already secured, Pathline Park’s focus on nature, sustainability, and the user experience has proven essential in getting it leased up quickly with exciting tenants. The project was also named Best Speculative Project of 2020 by the Silicon Valley Business Journal’s Structures Awards. As most of the five phases are currently under construction, stok is now guiding them all through LEED Group Certification, using close communication with the USGBC to ensure a seamless yet complex certification process. As more buildings come online, Irvine Company’s Pathline Park will serve as a powerful advocate for designing for connection between the built and natural environment, with human experience at the center.
