181 Fremont: Resilience-Based Design

In partnership with ARUP and Heller Manus Architects, 181 Fremont’s San Francisco-based team leveraged their international experience to create one of the world’s most innovative, durable, and sustainable structures. The building’s distinguishing façade acts as a shock-absorbing steel exoskeleton and is one of the many architectural and engineering elements that won 181 Fremont more awards in engineering innovation than any other US building.

  • The tallest mixed-use building on the West Coast designed by Heller Manus Architects
  • San Francisco’s first pre-certified LEED Platinum mixed-use tower
  • The 2019 recipient of global awards for seismic stability, engineering, and architecture from the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat
