About 188 Spear Street

The San Francisco building at 188 Spear Street was built in 1972, but underwent a major redevelopment that was completed in 2012. The brand new office space spans 12 stories and 216,107 square feet, available for rent.

Virtually column-free floor plates are 18,500 square feet, giving tenants excellent space and flexibility. Panoramic views of the Bay Bridge and the San Francisco Bays are outstanding from upper floors. Tenants enjoy the convenience of 24/7 access to the building. Professional security is provided Monday through Friday from 6:30 a.m. to 12:00 a.m., with 24 hour surveillance.

The original structure had eight floors, with a warm red brick façade. The redevelopment project included a vertical expansion that added four more floors with a curtain wall of floor-to-ceiling, wraparound glass. All windows were replaced, as were elevators, electrical, HVAC, and restrooms; the building also received a seismic upgrade. Office space has outstanding telecommunications infrastructure and service, as well.

Located along the Spear Street Corridor at the corner of Howard Street, the building enjoys high foot traffic. Mass transit is easily accessible, with great access to BART, Muni, ferries, and proximity to the new Transbay Terminal. Car commuters will appreciate quick access to bay Bridge and freeways, as well as the 90-car onsite garage.

The building’s old and new construction is seamlessly blended, so that the entire façade seems brand new. Gorgeous upper floor windows fill the space with transparency and add much to the beauty of the building. A landscaped plaza creates a lovely entrance for tenants.
