LPL Financial at La Jolla Commons is a 13-story, 415,575-square-foot office building developed through a joint venture between managing partner Hines and institutional investors advised by J.P. Morgan Asset Management. This project is the second office building at La Jolla Commons, which is located in San Diego’s University Towne Center (UTC) submarket.
LPL Financial at La Jolla Commons is the firm’s first net-zero project, and the nation’s largest carbon-neutral office building to date. The building achieves carbon neutrality on an annual basis through a combination of high-performance building design, directed biogas and on-site fuel cells that annually generates more electricity than the building and tenant uses.
The building’s exterior is predominately glass curtainwall system incorporating highly efficient, insulated double-paned glass with a clear, low-emissivity coating. LPL Financial at La Jolla Commons is targeting LEED-CS® Platinum certification. The building incorporates many sustainable features including under-floor air distribution and extensive use of reclaimed water for building systems and waste water.
The building has excellent visibility and access from Interstate 805 and La Jolla Village Drive. On-campus amenities include a cafe, fitness center, meeting space and electric vehicle charging stations.
