About 1401 Howard St

Located in San Francisco’s SoMa district, 1401 Howard Street is a unique property for tenants looking to rent unique office space in this neighborhood. The current location holds St. Joseph’s Church, and there are plans to convert the historical building.

Plans are to have 18,260 sq. ft. of office space, 1,300 sq. ft. of retail space, and 2,500 sq. ft. of assembly space. The church was damaged in the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake, so the renovations and conversions will include plans to repair both exterior and interior spaces.

When 1401 Howard Street’s renovations are completed, there will be a free-standing mezzanine and seismic upgrades. The developer hopes to customize the space for tenants from technology firms.

The building is conveniently situated near Highway 101 and I-80. Market and Mission Streets are close by, along with numerous restaurants, retail stores, and hotels.

1401 Howard Street was designated as a city landmark and it has stained glass windows, detailed carvings, and arched entryways.
