Breathing New Life into SoMa: The 1170 Harrison Redevelopment Project

Project overview

1170 Harrison, a historic warehouse nestled in the heart of San Francisco’s vibrant SoMa district, is poised for an exciting transformation. This adaptive reuse project, led by Workshop1, aims to restore and revitalize the existing structure while preserving its unique character and contributing to the neighborhood’s evolving identity.

Historic Significance: The warehouse, originally built in 1912, stands as a testament to SoMa’s industrial past. Its brick façade and distinctive architectural details tell the story of a bygone era, earning it a place on the City’s list of properties actively being considered for landmark designation. This recognition underscores the importance of preserving the building’s heritage and integrating it seamlessly into the modern SoMa landscape.

Rehabilitation and Expansion: The project envisions a careful refurbishment of the warehouse’s façade, ensuring its architectural integrity is maintained. A new setback one-story addition, designed to complement the existing structure, will create additional space while respecting the building’s scale and proportions.

Key features:

  • Increased office space: The project will generate approximately 21,000 square feet of prime office space within the expanded structure, catering to the growing demand for creative and innovative workspaces in SoMa.
  • Enhanced accessibility: A new mezzanine level will be added, providing additional vertical space and offering flexibility for office layouts.
  • Outdoor oasis: A 1,900-square-foot rooftop deck atop the addition will serve as a vibrant gathering space for tenants, offering stunning views of the city and a breath of fresh air.

Sustainability focus: The project prioritizes environmental responsibility, incorporating sustainable design principles throughout the construction and operation of the building. This commitment aligns with the evolving character of SoMa, which is increasingly embracing eco-friendly practices.
