One La Jolla Center – CA, USA

Project Specification

One La Jolla Center is a 15 story LEED Gold business building that completes the La Jolla Center “superblock”. The building offers 360 degree views from all floors, an onsite café, smart car charging stations and an outside landscaped workspace.

The outside workspace connects the building and an adjacent multilevel parking structure. In this area 30′ palms were secured, over structure, using the Platipus Deadman 4 Leg System with stainless steel tendon for permanent anchoring. The system removed the need for any above ground hazards (wood bracing) providing safety and stability while offering an instant “finished” appearance.
