Two Projects, Two Developers, One Big Campus for Dropbox

Just a few city blocks from the company’s headquarters in San Francisco, Swinerton Builders is maximizing teamwork at the 333 & 345 Brannan Street project sites. While Kilroy Realty was working with Swinerton to develop 333 Brannan Street, developer Breevast U.S. was also working with Swinerton on preconstruction services for 345 Brannan. Last year, when 333 Brannan Street began moving forward with construction, Swinerton proposed a novel and money-saving concept to both owners: simultaneously using Swinerton as the general contractor for both jobs.

333 Brannan is currently forming its fourth elevated deck with topping out scheduled for late fall. 345 Brannan has completed basement foundations and is working upward with completion of the structural trades scheduled for early 2015.

Both owners have developed unique components to create one large campus to attract a single future tenant–DropBox. Innovative components include one driveway entrance to both properties; eleven connections between 333 and 345 Brannan; a main entry courtyard designed as a single space; and shared power sources, both temporary and permanent.   

Both teams are working together in one office with ample opportunities to share ideas, learn from each other, and promote excellence in this truly unique joint project experience. Both 333 and 345 Brannan are scheduled for completion summer 2015.
