Located in Hollywood’s Media District, Hollywood 959 is a large office complex consisting of two office buildings, an eight-level parking garage for 729 vehicles, and a central landscaped courtyard.
The east building is four-story, and the west building is five-story with a two-story creative office space topped with a barrel roof. Colorful operable windows decorate the façade.
The office structures are cast-in-place concrete with post-tensioned slabs. Concrete shear walls resist seismic loads. Wide shallow beam system was used to reduce interior columns and maximize floor-to-ceiling height. 2-Way flat plate was used in some areas to eliminate all beams.
The parking structure is cast-in-place concrete with post-tensioned slabs. Reinforced concrete moment frame resist seismic loads. Long-span beam system was used to minimize columns and provide maximum openness.
