Patrick Donlon, a vice president of sales for Pivot Interiors, the largest Herman Miller dealer in the state, said, “For us, we have been in the Bay Area for 40 years, so there is a importance we place on improving the lives of the people who work, live and play” there.

[contextly_sidebar id=”49c1691db1066782dcad7b3c5f145fff”]“It’s near and dear to us at Pivot. We believe we are creating great places and spaces to do great work. The SPUR mission is about that. It was a very natural decision for us to participate,” Donlon said.

Longtime downtown San Jose proponent Barry Swenson Builder contributed the space, which is within several hundred yards of several downtown landmarks: the Cathedral Basilica of St. Joseph, the San Jose Museum of Art, and 50 W. San Fernando, the 17-story high-rise office building recently acquired by CBRE Global Investors. The Silicon Valley Capital Club, a long-time business and social organization, occupies the top floor. Architectural firm Gensler donated all of the design services. Toeniskoetter Construction acted as the general contractor.

Downtown property specialist Ritchie Commercial Inc. housed the SPUR office for a number of months as the new space was being created, Toeniskoetter said, and 19 additional sub-contractors contributed everything else from painting to signage to furnishings:
