Owned and managed by Hines, Gateway Oaks III is one of four buildings in the prestigious Gateway Oaks office campus, located in the exclusive Natomas submarket of Sacramento, California. Designed by B.H. Bocook and completed in 1996, Gateway Oaks III measures two stories and contains 46,000 square feet of space. The exterior is clad in sand-colored architectural precast, banded with continuous ribbons of reflective blue glass. Tenant amenities include an elegant lobby finished in polished granite, a campus setting including mature trees and water features, and a location that is both highly accessible by car and within easy walking distance of numerous restaurants overlooking the Sacramento River.


Gateway Oaks III earned the ENERGY STAR for superior energy performance through extensive retrofits to the building's infrastructure and a commitment to the active management of building energy consumption. HVAC systems were a major focus for retrofits, with a complete recommissioning of the HVAC system, the installation of new digital controls, and the installation of variable frequency drives (VFDs) on two rooftop air handlers and one boiler. These VFDs allow fans and pumps to operate at levels closely commensurate with actual demand, helping to reduce unnecessary energy consumption. Lighting was another focus at Gateway Oaks III, with the installation of high-efficiency fluorescent lamps in exterior lighting and the addition of occupancy sensors in tenant and common spaces. Finally, a digital building management system gives property managers and engineers centralized control over energy consumption at the property.


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
