The building will serve as temporary office space for legislative and executive elected officials and staff from the Capitol Annex until the new Annex project is completed. The building will then be jointly used as office space for legislative and executive employees.
 
“This exceptional new state office building in close proximity to the Capitol will be energy efficient, ADA accessible, and contain technology upgrades to facilitate the Legislature’s work on behalf of the people of California,” said Assembly Member and Chair of the Joint Committee on Rules, Ken Cooley. “This temporary move-in space is the pivotal piece to allow us to build an accessible, safe, and welcoming Capitol Annex to serve for generations of Californians and our visitors from around the world.”
 
The building – expected to be complete in fall 2021 – will include 10 floors of office space and will incorporate functional space for committee hearings, caucus meetings, conference committee meetings, general meeting rooms, legislative and executive branch offices, and integrated parking. The zero net energy and zero net carbon building will be designed to achieve a LEED Gold certification for new construction.

 

“I am excited to see this project begin construction; overall, the project fits DGS’ forward-thinking outlook toward building,” said DGS Director Daniel Kim. “This is the state’s first Progressive Design-Build project, which allowed us to reduce the overall schedule by 18 months. I am proud to provide the Legislature and the Governor’s Office a highly sustainable working space that promotes wellness, future flexibility and safety.”
 
An event is anticipated to be held at a later date.
 
The Department of General Services acts as the business manager for the state of California. DGS helps state government better serve the public by providing services to state agencies including procurement and acquisition solutions, real estate management, leasing and design services, environmentally friendly transportation, and architectural oversight and funding for the construction of safe schools.
