116 University Avenue is a new mixed use commercial building minutes from public transportation, shops, restaurants and parks and Stanford University.
The lower level and first floor are commercial retail spaces and the second floor is office space. The lower level has a light well that opens up to the new plaza, which connects University Avenue to the existing High Street Plaza and High-Alma Parking Structure. Next door is the 102 Mixed Use building currently under construction, pursuing LEED Platinum Certification with expected completion in the Spring of 2010.
Some of the sustainable building technologies include high performance insulated glazing, minimal layering of materials with exposed structural systems, and solar mitigation through overhangs and a detailed building louver system.
