Development permits were submitted for approving office space conversion at 2 Stockton Street in Tenderloin, San Francisco. The project proposal includes a three-story vertical above the fourth floor, including an outdoor terrace at the fifth and roof levels. Strada Investment Group is the project sponsor. Gensler is managing the design concept and construction.
The site location presently houses an existing four-story building with retail space on the lower three floors plus basement and office space on the top floor. The proposal will retain retail spaces at the basement, first, second, and partial third levels. A partial change of space usage to the office on the current third level and expansion on the fourth level office use are also included in the proposal.
The basement level will remain for retail use, building services and operations, Class 1 bicycle parking, clothing lockers, and shower facilities serving both retail and office uses. Class 2 bicycle parking is proposed along both Stockton and Market Streets on the sidewalk outside the pedestrian pathway. A new office entrance and lobby are proposed on Market Street on the easternmost edge of the property.
The total area proposed for office use is 49,998 square feet, and the existing space for office use is 8,060 square feet, totaling 58,058 square feet of office area. This façade and concept designs prioritize the corner massing composition of the original lower and proposed upper tower, extending the upper façade toward 48 Stockton and enabling the building to establish a proportionate relationship with the existing base.
