Flanked by the Cal Trans station and I-280 freeway off-ramp, 510 Townsend sits at a vital gateway to San Francisco. The area—which has long been populated by light industrial and warehouse buildings—is undergoing a transformation as the demand for tech office space with character and large floorplates grows alongside the city’s need for housing. The entire building is leased to a notable tech company.
The 5 and 7 story building is stepped to respond to different height and bulk controlled districts. The project features a 20,000 sf roof deck with fantastic city views, a through-block pedestrian path with public art, and a 6 story atrium with a whimsical winding stair.
