Map It!


Owned and managed by Hines REIT, 2100 Powell is a 16-story, 354,000-square-foot Class A high-rise office tower located on the eastern shore of the San Francisco Bay. Designed by Korth Sunseri Hagey Architects and completed in 2001, the tower, with its stunning two-story lobby of wood and granite, is further distinguished by its sweeping eastern fa?ade that presents a series of expansive curved-glass planes. The layers of curved glass are a direct reference to the dynamic imagery of sails that constantly traverse San Francisco Bay.


2100 Powell earned the ENERGY STAR for superior energy performance through a combination of original building features and a commitment to energy-conscious building management practices. Original features include insulated reflective glazing; high-efficiency fluorescent lighting and occupancy sensors; a fully automated direct digital control (DDC) building management system giving property managers and engineers immediate central control of energy consumption; and HVAC systems that incorporate 100 percent outside-air capabilities--for free cooling when outside conditions permit. These original features are supported by a rigorous commitment to reduced building energy consumption on the part of building owners and managers.


Hines has been recognized with multiple ENERGY STAR Sustained Excellence and Partner of the Year awards. For a summary of the firm's participation in the ENERGY STAR program and other sustainability information, visit
