The 120 Stockton project is a joint project between Morgan Stanley and Blatteis and Schnur. The team purchased the existing Macy’s Men’s building with the goal to transform the old building into a new space, more reflective of adjacent tenants in downtown Union Square, restoring a relationship with the street and pedestrians.

The project is comprised of a facade replacement, structural and seismic upgrades, replacement of the roof, and addition of a rooftop restaurant and living green roof. The project transforms the building from a large retail space into multi tenant luxury retail, with office space on upper levels. 120 Stockton will achieve LEED Gold, as well as new San Francisco stormwater/rainwater collection requirements. Based on the age and location of the existing building, the project required additional approval and review from the Historical Preservation Commission, as well as close coordination with SFMTA due to proximity to the new Central Subway project.

Nova’s role on the project included establishing a budget and helping to build the design and consultant team, as well as establishing the project schedule. After the budget was established, Nova assisted in helping to value engineer the project, to ensure that the developing design and construction costs were within budget. After design was complete, Nova helped the team navigate through the HPC and Planning Departments, expediting the permit process. Nova also assisted in managing the general contractor selection, and working with miscellaneous consultants including abatement, commissioning, permit expediting, security, and LEED consultants.
