Internal Revenue Services Building
Fresno, California

The most recent addition to Alex S. Palmer & Company's growing West Coast portfolio is the Internal Revenue Service Building and Parking Structure awarded to Alex S. Palmer & Company through the Federal Government Procurement System.

The new IRS Compliance Services Building project is the result of Federal and Fresno City officials working together to provide needed office space and position the project where it will contribute to the revitalization of the downtown Fresno urban environment. The new facility will provide an anchor location along new pedestrian malls on two sides of the project site, linking the downtown business district with Fresno's new sports stadium.

The 6-story, 195,000-gross-square-foot building with a dedicated parking facility capable of handling 800 vehicles is also brilliantly landscaped featuring a garden/courtyard that tenants and the public will find appealing. In addition, the exterior of the building is clad in a combination of high grade architectural precast concrete with carefully selected aggregates and textures, and high performance glass, which represents a trademark combination of materials utilized on Alex S. Palmer & Company's investment grade projects. Because of the prominent location within the downtown center of Fresno, much consideration was given to the manner in which this project would impact the city from an architectural aesthetic and functional point of view as well as from a qualitative perspective.

Alex S. Palmer & Company, working closely with Architects at Helmuth Obata & Kassabaum's San Francisco office, developed a project that will exceed the specified tenant and performance requirements of the IRS and GSA and is destined to become a significant enhancement to the downtown skyline and urban environment of Fresno, Calif. Alex S. Palmer & Company is proud to be a part of the progressive Fresno's revitalization effort.
