To address San Francisco’s significant housing shortage and provide more mixed-use neighborhoods, office-to-condominium conversion projects can be part of the solution. Huntsman worked closely with the developer and local agencies to convert a historic landmark high-rise into one-hundred and seven residences in the heart of the city’s business district.
For the property’s new use, a seismic retrofit and complete renovation of the building's interior and building systems was required. Residences incorporate contemporary interiors, with units ranging from junior one-bedroom to two-bedroom-plus in size. Huntsman designed a new penthouse level addition of four modern luxury residential units, along with common outdoor space for all residents. Sensitive to scale and context, the project received full support from the San Francisco Urban Research and Planning Institute, San Francisco Heritage, and the Landmarks Commission.
