About 1500 Franklin St

The bright red office building along the Van Ness Corridor was built in 1907, renovated in 1999, and again in 2007. Located at 1500 Franklin Street, the building enjoys a prime location in San Francisco’s Western Addition neighborhood. The structure has 4 floors and 13,744 rentable square feet of office and retail space.

With frontage on both Bush and Franklin Streets, the bold red building has outstanding visibility. The ground and second floors have 3,408 square feet of space; the third floor includes 3,192 square feet; and a fourth floor penthouse unit has 346 square feet. A lower level adds another 3,390 square feet of rentable space to the building. The structure is amenable for either single user or multi-tenant configurations.

The recent and significant renovations yielded tenant improvements, an elevator, new bathrooms, a modernized lobby, and systems upgrades. The result is modern, flexible, and functional retail and office space with outstanding natural light, high ceilings, and skylights. Each floor has a mix of private offices and open space.

This building is located just two blocks from the new $2 billion Cathedral Hill Hospital Campus, which when completed will include a 300 bed hospital, and new and renovated medical office buildings. Tenants in the medical field will have a unique opportunity in this location. As the Van Ness Corridor sees 55,000 motorized vehicle trips during an average workday, businesses of all interests will find this retail and office space very attractive.

Although it was built in 1907, the bold red structure with black trim has a very modern appearance. Ground floor storefront glass is outstanding, as are the contemporary windows on the rest of the façade.
