Sunnyvale, CA, May 24, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SmithGroupJJR has been commissioned by Spear Street Capital to design a new 145,500-square foot, three-story, Class A speculative office building at 221 N. Mathilda Avenue in Sunnyvale, California. The development will be constructed on a 4.3 acre greenfield site at the northwest corner of the intersection of Mathilda Avenue and West California Avenue, in close proximity to the Sunnyvale station of Caltrain, the San Francisco Peninsula commuter rail service. According to SmithGroupJJR lead designer David King, the building’s most significant design feature is the striking, custom 2,000-square-foot, laminated glass artwork that will span the building’s east façade.  Commissioned from artist Stephen Galloway, known for his large-scale public works, the artwork reflects the site’s history as an orchard. Inside, the unique design continues with floor-to-floor windows and industrial elements that offer an open, modern warehouse feel. SmithGroupJJR designed the facility to have a strong visual connection to the surrounding community. It is one of the first new buildings to comply with the Peery Park Specific Plan, which calls for updated design and planning standards for redevelopment encouraging Class A office and density. “We wanted to acknowledge Sunnyvale’s rich history by maintaining a large amount of open space on the site while simultaneously representing its dynamic future,” said Juhee Cho, Workplace Studio Leader at SmithGroupJJR’s San Francisco office. The office building will feature large floorplates up to 49,500-square-feet, a multi-level parking garage and ample outdoor amenities, such as a prominent deck and a private courtyard with an outdoor kitchen. Additional amenities include a third-level patio, bike repair and storage, lockers and showers, and public open space. The site also includes a 1,200-square-foot historic home, which will be rehabilitated as a multi-purpose conference/amenity facility for the future tenant. Slated for construction completion in the fall of 2018, the new office building is targeting LEED-NC Platinum certification. Sustainable design features include energy efficient building systems, architectural solar shading, water conserving fixtures, ample outdoor amenities, including public open space and green screen cladding on the parking garage. South Bay Construction is serving as general contractor. SmithGroupJJR is a recognized, integrated architecture, engineering and planning firm ranked Top 10 in the U.S. by Building Design + Construction magazine. The firm’s nationally recognized Workplace Practice has completed the planning and design of more than 60 million-square-feet of corporate, government, institutional and private development projects related to workplace environments and urban development. With 164 LEED certified projects, SmithGroupJJR is a leader in sustainable design. Spear Street Capital is a real estate investment company dedicated to pursuing select office investment opportunities primarily in the United States and Canada.

Drug and Alcohol Dependence | Year: 2011

Background: Aroma, Spice, K2 and Dream are examples of a class of new and increasingly popular recreational drugs. Ostensibly branded " herbal incense" they have been intentionally adulterated with synthetic cannabinoids such as JWH-018 in order to confer on them cannabimimetic psychoactive properties while circumventing drug legislation. JWH-018 is a potent cannabinoid receptor agonist. Little is known about its pharmacology and toxicology in humans. This is the first research considering the effects of JWH-018 on a psychiatric population and exploring the relationship between JWH-018 and psychotic symptoms. Method: This paper presents the results of semi-structured interviews regarding the use and effects of JWH-018 in 15 patients with serious mental illness in a New Zealand forensic and rehabilitative service. Results: All 15 subjects were familiar with a locally available JWH-018 containing product called " Aroma" and 86% reported having used it. They credited the product's potent psychoactivity, legality, ready availability and non-detection in drug testing as reasons for its popularity, with most reporting it had replaced cannabis as their drug of choice. Most patients had assumed the product was " natural" and " safe" Anxiety and psychotic symptoms were common after use, with 69% of users experiencing or exhibiting symptoms consistent with psychotic relapse after smoking JWH-018. Although psychological side effects were common, no one reported becoming physically unwell after using JWH-018. Three subjects described developing some tolerance to the product, but no one reported withdrawal symptoms. Conclusion: It seems likely that JWH-018 can precipitate psychosis in vulnerable individuals. People with risk factors for psychosis should be counseled against using synthetic cannabinoids. © 2011 Elsevier Ireland Ltd.
