ECR and Diller

Redwood City, California

ECR and Diller, currently in design, is a new residential project in Redwood City, a San Francisco Bay Area community located in the heart of Silicon Valley. The project includes an eight-story, concrete residential tower with 315 units over three levels of subterranean parking. The project also features street-level retail, a fitness room, club room, and rooftop pool. Construction is expected to start in early 2017.

The structure is cast-in-place concrete and is supported by a mat foundation. Concrete shear walls resist seismic and wind loads. CKC’s seamless integration of the concrete structure met layout requirements of both the residential units and parking structure below.

CKC used two-way, flat-plate post-tensioned slabs throughout the project, which decreased the floor-to-floor height and allowed the developer to add an additional floor within the site’s height restriction. Additionally, CKC implemented an elegant structural system to accommodate a high water table at the site while minimizing cost impact to the project.
