The San Francisco Planning Commission has recommended approval to the office space allocation for 531 Bryant Street, in central SoMa, San Francisco. This move takes from the annual city-wide allowance for small-development office space, bringing it from over 750,000 to 703,336 square feet. The Urban Land Development LLC leads the proposed six-story building, with design by the prolific Handel Architects.
Recent images show that the recladding and five-story expansion of the office building at 633 Folsom Street, SoMa is nearly complete. The new design is by Gensler, an international architecture firm, with development by the building owner, Swig Company. A future tenant has already been secured by CBRE, Asana, a tech company owned by Facebook co-founder Dustin Moskovitz. Occupancy is expected soon.
