Owned and managed by Hines, 95 Hawthorne is one of two buildings comprising Hawthorne Plaza. Located in the South of Market Financial District of San Francisco, California, 95 Hawthorne is a five-story, 107,000-square-foot office building. Originally built in 1910, it has been extensively renovated (1967) and retrofitted (1991).  The renovation of the fa?ade included the installation of architectural precast exterior panels, and vertical brise-soleils on the fourth and fifth floors along the Hawthorne Street and Folsom Street elevations.


95 Hawthorne earned the ENERGY STAR for superior energy performance as a result of active building energy management and a series of infrastructure retrofits. Retrofits include the installation of LED lighting in exit signs, the installation and use of mechanical and digital time clocks to set start and stop times and control building lighting, and the use of variable frequency drives (VFDs) on building air handling units. These VFDs enable air handling units to operate at speeds that closely track actual demand--helping to reduce unnecessary consumption and run time.  95 Hawthorne also completed the installation and recalibration of outside air dampers. Lastly, a comprehensive preventative maintenance program helps ensure that all building equipment continues to operate effectively and efficiently.


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
