Renderings released by HOK and developers Landbank, Cassidy Turley, and CB Richard Ellis show a curved, 770,000-sf campus located in a hotbed of heavyweight tech firms. 

CurbedSF reports that the new Central & Wolfe campus, planned for Silicon Valley, will replace a set of "an unsightly set of sprawling cookie-cutter buildings and their surface parking lots."

Central & Wolfe will comprise three four-story office buildings and one two-story amenities building. The developers hope it will attract tech startups, with rental packages for small and large firms alike, and standard features such as 13.5-foot floor-to-floor heights, a cafeteria, fitness center, bike repair shop, banking, dry cleaner, and coffee bar.

The current renderings allow anywhere from 90,000 to 208,000 sf of rooftop gardens. The building is designed to acheive LEED Platinum certification, and will be transit accessible. Schedule completion date: March 2016.
