China Basin, located at the gateway to San Francisco’s Mission Bay, is the campus-like business complex located at 185 Berry Street, which is comprised of two structures. The Berry Street Building is five stories; the Wharfside building has six stories. Together they offer 916,061 square feet of commercial office space for rent.
This complex is arguably one of the finest life science, technology, and corporate offerings in San Francisco. Long, rectangular floor plates and 16’ high ceilings make the space extremely flexible, with ready potential to transform it into lab space, classrooms, creative open space or traditional offices. Offices boast superior connectivity, an amenity which draws leading edge technology and research users. Beautiful views of San Francisco Bay can be found from almost every vantage point along the building’s long and striking window lines.
The Berry and the Wharfside buildings are connected by a landscaped plaza, complete with a café and covered seating. The area doubles as a snack area and also an informal and pleasant meeting place for tenants. A multi-level promenade along the wharf is a great place to stretch one’s legs at the midday break, or to sit and take in the beautiful bay views. The campus environment is a setting designed to maximize productivity and collaboration.
One of the best perks of tenancy here is a continuous, free shuttle to the Financial District and to BART. The buildings are located just one block from CalTrain and Muni Light Rail services. Car commuters will appreciate the on-site garage. China Basin is right on San Francisco Bay, in an ideal location for business activities, as the area is the fastest growing business and residential area in San Francisco.
These two recently renovated buildings set a standard for excellence in office space. The long rectangular footprints of the structures along extensive use of horizontal lines and glass create a nautical feel. The use of open space and pedestrian friendly design are an outstanding amenity for tenants of China Basin.
