Since its completion in 2017, Salesforce Tower has been the tallest and one of the most iconic fixtures on San Francisco’s skyline.
With a platinum LEED certification, the 1,070 ft building combines an impressive stature with a deep commitment to sustainability and wellbeing.
This ecocentric design scores maximum LEED points for its innovation in design and water efficiency. Onsite, you can find America’s largest onsite water recycling system within any commercial high-rise. The efficiency of this system reduces portable water usage by 7.8 million galleons — equivalent to 62.4 million water bottles.
The building’s innovative HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning) system allows employees on every floor to breathe in 100% outdoor air. Additionally, workers have personal thermal comfort control at their workstations and experience minimal noise disturbance from the under-floor air distribution due to the low-energy, low-velocity air supply.
For visiting guests, perhaps the most impressive section of the Salesforce HQ is the Ohana Floor. The term Ohana means “intentional family” in Hawaiian, and it’s clear that the intention behind the floor is to foster a sense of wellness through its biophilic design, which features 128 different plant species attached to its impressive green-laden columns.
