San Francisco, CA
Shorenstein Properties LLC and Brereton Architects are pleased to host an informative tour of the 188 Spear Street LEED Core and Shell redevelopment project in San Francisco.
Join the tour to learn how Shorenstein and Brereton approached this unique vertical expansion project, which is now home to two leading technology companies. The tour will be followed by a reception with complementary refreshments.
About 188 Spear Street: Originally constructed in 1972 by architect Jorge DeQuesada at the intersection of Howard and Spear Streets, this property underwent a major redevelopment beginning in 2011. The redevelopment includes a four-story steel-frame vertical expansion to the original eight-story structure, bringing the commercial property to a total of 216,107 square feet and adding spectacular views of the San Francisco Bay, Ferry Building, and Bay Bridge. With construction nearly complete, the project is pending LEED Gold CS certification and is already 90% leased to high-tech tenants.
