800 J Lofts

Northern California

Loft-style, total precast apartment building, utilizing a state-of-the-art precast hybrid moment-frame system.

Sacramento鈥檚 800 J Lofts is a highly visible, public/听private downtown mixed-use residential project听that exemplifies the best that precast systems can听be to the design-build team and the community. The听project implements the latest seismic technology听in the Precast Hybrid Moment Frame; it integrates听high-end architectural finishes on structural听elements; and it helps the community fulfill goals of听downtown redevelopment and revitalization.

Implementation of the latest precast innovations

This is the first total precast mixed-use structure in听California to employ the new Precast Hybrid听Moment Frame as its chief means of seismic听resistance. The building is designed to not only save life and limb during a seismic event, but it听also enables immediate re-occupancy afterwards听due to its inherent self-righting mechanism.听This precast-enabled feature represents true听owner and tenant value.

Integrated high-end architectural finishes on听structural elements to fully express design intent

The street-exposed structural elements form听the skin of the building and were crafted with听architectural finishes including multiple mix听designs (8 in total for the exterior exposed听elements!), reveals, and different levels of texture,听providing a rich tapestry for the downtown location.听Because the interiors of these structural elements听were left exposed on the interior as well, the entire听elements were cast using white cement and added听colors. The structure blurs the lines between听what is architectural precast and what is structural听precast.

An expression of community

The project itself (a public/private jointly funded听venture) was at the heart of and fully embodied a听breakthrough in downtown redevelopment and听revitalization. It was the first downtown residential听project completed in many years, and was built听on a half city block that had been an empty blight听since a fire destroyed the previous structure over 15听years earlier.
