315 Montgomery Street
Built in 1922, 315 Montgomery Street is a 16-story high-rise originally known as the Commercial Union Assurance Building. Over time, the building became part of The Bank of America Center which incorporates 555 California Street and the main branch bank at 345 Montgomery Street. As part of Vornado's master plan for the Center, Huntsman designed base building renovations for the historic building to address leasing strategies for creative services, media, and technology tenants seeking unique architecture and floorplates. The main building lobby remodel incorporates new materials and technology while highlighting and preserving the Renaissance Revival fabric. New doors and entrance system allows for a greater amount of daylight to fill the lobby. Honed stone flooring, glass panels, and new plaster walls brighten the interiors, while the existing gold leaf ceiling will be accentuated by white paint finish. A more contemporary security desk and artwork introduce modern elements. An existing roof terrace will provide tenants an urban parklet environment with a meandering walkway formed by bench seating and planters and leading to views of the Bay to the north.
