HGA-Designed Renovation Ushers in a New Era for Sacramento’s Signature Renaissance Tower

SACRAMENTO, CA — HGA has completed a full-scale modernization of the public-facing spaces within the Renaissance Tower located in downtown Sacramento, California. The firm was brought in by U.S. alternative asset management company, The RMR Group, to redesign the building’s main entrance, common area, and expanded lobby to better complement its neighboring community and offer a fresh, welcoming experience for corporate occupants and local visitors.

Built in 1989, Renaissance Tower was once the tallest building in Sacramento and remains a downtown landmark as the current fifth tallest. Beyond the upgrades necessary for modernizing the 30-year-old property, the underutilized building was in need of a comprehensive repositioning. In total, HGA’s redesign encompassed approximately 6,000 square feet of common spaces within the 28-floor building on the city’s K Street.

“Renaissance Tower has been a fixture of Sacramento’s skyline for decades, and it was our honor to be a part of its restoration for the next generation of users,” said Heather Kampa, CID, WELL AP, EDAC, Principal at HGA and the project’s lead. “HGA’s Sacramento office takes great pride in our city, and this project provided a fantastic opportunity to work with a company like The RMR Group that shares in our vision for its continued growth and revitalization. Together, we’ve reimagined this local landmark into an inviting space that better engages the tenants and other visitors who will be returning to Renaissance Tower.

Prior to HGA’s engagement, Renaissance Tower was Energy Star labeled and LEED Platinum certified, so it was critical for the team to maintain both designations through innovative design and system upgrading strategies. Mechanical systems, plumbing fixtures with GREENGUARD Gold Certifications, interior finishes, and other products were responsibly selected by HGA to meet sustainability goals.

In addition to Kampa, the HGA team included Lotos Young, Interior Design Lead and Richard Layugan, Senior Project Coordinator. The project team included HGA’s lighting design team, and mechanical and structural engineers; Icon General Contractors, general contractor and construction manager; Capitol City Design, electrical consultant; Grigio Art Consulting, art consultant; Studio Tutto, mural artists; Joha Harrison, mixed media fine art piece; and Garden on the Wall, vertical garden.
