The Baker & Hamilton Building, a San Francisco historic landmark, was rehabilitated to accommodate 200,000 s.f. of modern office and multi-media workspaces.

Originally constructed in 1905, the 290,000 s.f. warehouse is a masonry and heavy timber structure. Unique features such as the historic entry, the rooftop sign and the large interior light well skylight were preserved and repaired.

Improvements include a new Townsend and 7th street entrance, new elevator and stair core, new mechanical and electrical systems, and extensive seismic upgrades.

A new 57,000 s.f. concrete frame office building and 300 car parking structure complete the development and are located adjacent to the existing building.
