The Callan Redevelopment Project is a 150,000 SF new build. This new development includes two three-story over basement scientific research buildings. This project was an exciting addition to the 20+ acre Torrey Pines Science Park, which almost doubles the current leasable area by replacing an outdated 90,000 square foot building. The project achieved LEED Gold which allowed the building to also become qualified by the City of San Diego as a Sustainable building. The buildings feature integrated PV panels in the trellis along with a green roof viewing deck with both coastal and canyon views. The additional roof will remain available for future PV. Ultimately, the green roof helps reduce the campus’ heat island effect, attracts pollinators, and provides a scenic outdoor space for tenants. In addition to the solar panels and green roof, the building also leverages dynamic glass, which automatically tints windows to control sunlight and heat throughout the day. These amenities did not go unseen, as Callan Ridge was voted to win the People's Choice Orchid Award!
