Permits are currently under review for the renovation and transformation of San Francisco’s I. Magnin Building at 233 Geary Street, in the Tenderloin. The plans change the building from a Macy’s department store into a mixed-use building with apartments, expanded offices, and retail. The 1946-era stone facade will receive a few significant alterations, including prominent new window accents, updated street cladding, and a curtainwall wrap along the top level. The structure overlooks the festive Union Square and the Macy’s Christmas Tree, with some of the city’s highest foot traffic for shopping and sightseeing. Sand Hill Property Company are the developers following the $250 million sales in January 2019.
