The first phase of the 500,000 square foot campus that showcases Echelon's LonWorks building controls technology, is now complete on a former, under-performing retail site in San Jose.

The development will consist of a 75,000 square foot, 3-story building and a 25,000 square foot, 2-story building. Parking will be both surface and underground. The office complex will be integrated into the portfolio of managed properties that Kenmark monitors through the Kenmark Building Operations Center.


Redwood Shores 100 Redwood Shores Parkway
Property Management, Leasing and Marketing,
Construction Administration

This beautiful, 4-story office building had been leased to a single tenant, for their worldwide corporate headquarters. When this tenant relocated its operation to Europe, the ownership engaged Kenmark to refurbish and reposition this valuable asset. Located at the entrance to Redwood Shores, one of the Bay Area’s most prestigious corporate addresses, this building had the benefits of a great location, but was in need of a business plan that combined cost control with an aggressive re-leasing strategy. In response, Kenmark implemented building improvements to bring the property back to its original luster, and created a building identity, supported by sophisticated web-based marketing materials prominently hosted on Kenmark’s website..


Building Operations Center (BOC)
Technology Integration, Support and Monitoring

Kenmark’s Building Operation Center provides owners, managers and tenants with easy online access to the controls and communications that make buildings more comfortable, secure and efficient to operate and manage. Over many years of internal development, Kenmark Controls’ in-house engineering and I.T. professionals collaborated with our own maintenance professionals and property managers, and incorporated their input. The BOC is a web application available
exclusively to Kenmark’s clients and partners. The BOC
aggregates disparate building control systems into one online, remotely managed platform, while providing a communications tool for owners, managers and tenants to post, distribute and initiate building communications. The BOC is also a consolidation platform whereby multiple buildings, in diverse
geographic locations, can be seamlessly integrated into one remotely monitored portfolio.

Corixa Corixa Corporation (formally Coulter Pharmaceutical, Inc.)
Discovery, Analysis, Implementation

Faced with the challenge of managing rapid growth, the management of Corixa Corporation in Palo Alto recognized the impact real estate can have on a company's success. Managing their growth from a few thousand feet to more than 150,000 square feet within a few years seemed like a formidable challenge until the founders of Kenmark segmented the process into manageable components.

Kikkoman International Kikkoman International
Tenant Representation

Kikkoman and Kenmark share a representation relationship spanning more than 18 years. After negotiating the prior lease of their San Francisco headquarters building on the top floor of the prestigious 50 California building, Kenmark was again engaged to assist Kikkoman with their lease renewal. The challenge was threefold. Kenmark was asked to assist Kikkoman in evaluating their current and future space requirements, to generate a plan to drive efficiencies of operation for their existing space and to provide a qualitative analysis and comparison of three distinct Bay Area markets as potential relocation destinations. A strategic plan was developed to determine the best solution to implement to satisfy corporate culture and employee critical requirements.

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratories (LBNL)
Energy Management, Building Technology

LBNL asked Kenmark to participate in a cutting-edge energy management test that could prove the viability of reducing energy consumption during the peak hours of power demand. Through the Building Operations Center (BOC), Kenmark proved that the BOC could accept commands directly from a mock utility company server in order to curtail energy use in multiple buildings. During simulated brownout periods, the test showed instantaneous results, with energy reductions of 50% or more. If more buildings had the capability of a load shed demand response through a system like the BOC, it is possible that the need for new energy plant construction in California could be significantly reduced. This program confirmed the possibility that final annual energy cost saving could range from 10-20% off an entire year's utility billing.

Lido Plaza Lido Plaza
Land Acquisition and Office Use Entitlement Processing

During the booming office market of the late 1990's, Kenmark's team of development professionals identified an undeveloped 4.5-acre parcel of land located within the master planned community of Redwood Shores. Kenmark processed the entitlements for a 95,000 square foot, two-building office complex. The project is now home to a variety of high tech and professional services companies. The land value was increased five-fold and the project became a tremendous financial success.

Openwave Openwave
Construction Advisory

Kenmark’s ability to fast track a project and still maintain the highest standards of quality and attention to detail were showcased in the headquarters relocation and consolidation achieved by Openwave. The project went from concept design to a 300,000 square foot building with a 350-seat cafeteria in 12 months. Advisory work has also been completed regarding cost analysis and budget reviews for potential future Openwave locations in Boston and Santa Barbara.

Openwave Redwood Shores, Hotel Development Site

Kenmark, with a group of local investors, purchased a site within the prestigious Redwood Shores development that had virtually no access or project entitlements. Working closely with the City of Redwood Planning Department, the site was eventually approved for the development of a 100,000 sq. ft. hotel. A Marriott Suites Hotel was built by another group of investors, who purchased the land after all entitlements were obtained. The original land value was increased tenfold and today the hotel is an operational success.

Turnberry Homes at Ocean Colony
Design, General Contractor, Marketing, Customer Care

The Turnberry housing development was built by Kenmark from 1997 to 1999. With 28 residences ranging in price from $700,000 to over $1,000,000, these homes sold quickly, with final prices well above the original proforma. As infill, surrounded by existing homes in the well-established community of Ocean Colony, this project required perfect planning with seamless execution. Built by Kenmark Construction, this project was on-time and on-budget, and yielded substantial financial results.
