High-rise design in seismic regions is uniquely driven by the structural cost. Saiful Bouquet’s designs, frequently using state of the art, peer reviewed alternative design methodologies accepted by local jurisdictions, allow developers to build higher for less. High-rise experience includes the Phase 1 and Phase II of the 3.2 million gsf multiple high-rise Metropolis Development, the 55 story 755 Figueroa (never built), the 20-story Park Place tower in Irvine, preliminary designs for five 30 to 60 story towers in Korea, the 16-story VUE residential tower in San Pedro and several others. Principals’ prior firm experience includes several completed 50+ story towers.
