West Marine Products Corporate Offices and Warehouse
West Marine ProductsJHW Architects was the winner of a design contest to best utilize the "L" shaped lot chosen by this major supplier of parts and equipment for boats. This facility serves as West Marine's National Headquarters and West Coast Distribution Warehouse. Completed in 1988 under a very tight budget of $31.50/S.F., the building provides 36,250 S.F. of corporate offices and 75,085 S.F. of warehouse. Shortly after completion, the facility withstood the treacherous Loma Prieta earthquake almost completed unscathed. Suffering only minor window damage while many of Watsonville's structures crumbled under the force of the massive temblor, West Marine stands today as a landmark along the Highway 1 corridor.
