C.W. Driver Companies, a builder serving California for more than a century, has announced the completion of a 36,736-square-foot creative office building at 1550 Euclid St. in downtown Santa Monica.

The three-story, steel-frame structure is split into two wings by a U-shaped footprint above the ground level that centers around an exposed courtyard on the second floor. Floor-to-ceiling glass wraps the building’s exterior, making it a focal point in Silicon Beach, the creative tech capital of Southern California.

The first floor consists of 4,086 square feet of street-facing retail and 9,753 square feet of creative business and professional office space. The second floor houses an additional 12,280 square feet of creative business and professional office space, along with a fully functioning kitchen and an outdoor terrace. The third floor includes 9,664 additional square feet of office space and a screening room. “This forward-thinking creative office space was built with sustainability and wellness in mind to match the professional needs of Southern California tech employees and enhance the pedestrian-friendly corridor with additional retail,” said Judd Reas, project executive at C.W. Driver Companies, in a statement. The creative office building is easily accessible for employees and customers commuting by public transportation. The mixed-use retail and office building is located five minutes walking distance from the Metro Expo Line light rail train’s 17th Street/Santa Monica College Station. The building includes solar panels that provide power to future tenant spaces and equipment.

Additional energy-efficient and sustainable elements include EV chargers for electric vehicles.
C.W. Driver Cos. worked with Belzberg Architects and developer Friedken Group on the project. Recent projects in preconstruction by C.W. Driver Cos. include the 38,000-square-foot commercial building for Redcar Properties at 1650 Euclid Street in Santa Monica.
