Michael W. Bischoff

The tower completes the La Jolla Center superblock, located within the San Diego area’s only master-planned live, work, learn, and play community.

With a space-making design and high-quality materials, One La Jolla Center exhibits an attention to detail exceptional in an office environment. The stainless-steel-and-glass-clad unitized curtain wall system includes 10-foot floor-to-ceiling, high-performance low-E glazing, while 30-foot column spacing allows for column-free corner offices.

Arriving at the main lobby via the motor court drop-off or by foot through a landscaped courtyard, occupants and visitors can easily find their way to the appropriate lift within the central elevator lobby. The state-of-the-art, 1,000-foot-per-minute elevator system uses destination-dispatch technology to shuttle passengers efficiently to their intended floors. Ground-level amenities include a fitness center and full-service café accessible from the main lobby. The landscaped grounds feature a large central garden courtyard containing several shaded workspaces with soft seating and Wi-Fi connections.
