Ken Hayes (architect) does a lot of commercial projects in Palo Alto especially a number of the newly built buildings (one on Middlefield, one on Hamiliton, several on University).

During the recent study session on 395 Page Mill Road et al, I believe Council Member Scharff offered some back-of-the-envlope numbers related to this matter; I don't recall the specifics. Maybe scrub through the video on the Media Center site to find it.
