140 Second St

Design: Group I
Project Completion: 2009
Square Footage: 35,000

Neglected for years, 140 Second Street offered Group I a great opportunity to renovate an existing structure to help revitalize our downtown area. 140 Second Street is merely one part of a greater initiative to improve San Francisco. It’s renovation complements pre-existing municipal plans to improve the streetscape and transit infrastructure in the area.

This historic 1908 building, adjacent to the new Transbay terminal, has been gutted and renovated into a 6-story mixed-use mecca of retail and business that offers new functionality in a commercially vital setting.

Exposed brick and crisp modern furnishings provide the single-floor tenants a rustic, open working environment. Existing and new materials palette adds texture and creates interplay between existing and new spaces. This aesthetic extends to the modern office lobby and rear exposed steel entry canopy.

The completely re-designed retail spaces with frontages on both Second and Minna Streets promise to be more accessible to foot traffic and enjoy improved visibility and larger window displays.
