The Brickyard at Playa Vista
The Brickyard, a 460,000 sf office building with ground floor retail and a standalone daycare center and play yard, is Tishman Speyer’s third and final office project at Playa Vista. The first tenant is the Loyola Marymount University School of Film and Television.
It was designed by Michael Maltzan Architecture; Gensler was the architect of record. The LEED Group process was utilized for efficiency. The foundation of the LEED effort was Playa Vista’s urban design, unique project requirements, and the City of Los Angeles Green Code, an expansion of CALGreen. The Brickyard added, among other elements, energy and water efficiency, tenant submetering, enhanced commissioning, open space, and bike parking and changing rooms.
Playa Vista has unique green advantages and requirements for developers. A sitewide Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP) projects don’t have to prepared their own. The 27-acre freshwater marsh and riparian corridor fulfills California’s storm water runoff regulation and earns the LEED storm water quality credit. Municipally supplied recycled water must be used for irrigation and for nonpotable uses inside commercial buildings, including toilets and urinals.
