Saiful Bouquet is providing structural design services for the $250M Pico+ Fig Convention Center Hotel. The proposed Building will be a 38-story 525 ft tall 608,000 sf mixed-use Tower, which will include a 7-story podium. It will have 775 guest rooms and 370 parking stalls. The 7-story podium, which will house retail on the ground floor and 6-stories of parking above that, will be wrapped in signage.
One of the key features of the Tower A/B hotel will be a very elaborate bar lounge and swimming pool on the roof. The tower will be of concrete construction with core walls as the primary lateral resisting system and post-tensioned slabs supported on columns as the gravity system. The seismic design of the towers will follow a Performance Based Design approach.
