Sonoma County is riding a wave of private construction activity, from a big, ultramodern lender headquarters to a $175 million “4.5-star” casino hotel to sizable warehouse projects for a space-hungry market.
The new 120,000-square-foot headquarters for American AgCredit and local agricultural nonprofits makes a striking statement at the entrance to the business parks on the road to Charles M. Schulz–Sonoma County Airport.
The three-story building at 400 Aviation Blvd. north of Santa Rosa is one of the most ambitious projects undertaken to date by TLCD Architecture, according to Don Tomasi, principal of the Santa Rosa-based firm and a speaker at the Business Journal’s Construction Conference on May 18. General contractor Jim Murphy & Associates, also of Santa Rosa, started construction in December 2014.
