As part of the Warriors new upcoming arena complex in San Francisco, AE3 Partners joint ventured with Pfau Long Architects to serve as the design architect for two new office towers on the site. These office towers, which encompass over 550,000 square feet, will define the primary entry and retail plaza for the sports complex. The lower 2 floors will consist of restaurants and other retail, designed to activate a large pedestrian plaza which will be illuminated by large expanses of LED signage.

The buildings are steel framed with a concrete shear core which will allow maximum adaptability by both high-tech, and potentially bio-tech, tenants. AE3 Partners role, in addition to providing input to the overall design, is to serve as the local architect of record and to lead the production of the exterior curtain wall design package that will be used to fast-track the selection of design-build contractors for this part of the project. The project has been designed to achieve LEED Gold certification.
