Award-winning architecture, interior design, and planning firm Solomon Cordwell Buenz (SCB) has revealed new renderings of the firm’s latest project in Oakland, Telegraph Tower. The project, developed by TMG Partners and endorsed by Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf as a key element of Uptown Oakland’s development, provides 875,000-square-feet of next generation office space with large floorplates, high ceilings, the latest technology, and best-in-class building amenities. SCB is both the architect and interior designer for the project.

The architectural design of the 28-story tower is balanced between Oakland’s industrial past and the city’s future as a growing business hub. Its angular form and glazed massing create a contemporary image that is framed by an industrial-inspired patinaed metal seam that runs throughout the building. The building’s volumes are shifted to create roof terraces on the sixth, eighteenth, and twenty-eighth floors, providing west-facing views of the San Francisco Bay.

“Telegraph Tower represents a new design approach to urban office towers. We were really influenced by the uniqueness of Oakland as a place, from the varying scales of the existing urban fabric, to the rich materiality of its industrial past, to the vibrancy of its amazing arts scene,” said Chris Pemberton, president of SCB. “It was important to us to create a building that feels like a continuation of the city’s story.”

The interior floorplates of Telegraph Tower offer up to 37,000-square-feet of office space, with wide, column-free spans and 11 ½-foot-tall glass exposures. Collaboration and wellness are key to the design. The building features a 10,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art fitness and wellness center, a community theater, street-level retail, a café, and gallery space. Thirty-three balconies provide each level with outdoor space, and private terraces on the sixth, eighteenth and twenty-eighth floors create grand social spaces for tenants and entertaining.

“Telegraph Tower leads the next generation of office buildings for Oakland with its emphasis on expansive, open floorplates, some of the highest ceilings of any Bay Area office building, and a large proportion of outdoor space,” said Michael Covarrubias, Chairman and CEO of TMG Partners. “We took every lesson we have learned about what companies want today and designed Telegraph Tower as a workplace environment that is entirely focused on delivering the ‘right’ employee experience.”
