About 2 Harrison St

The historic building at 2 Harrison Street was constructed in 1925 to serve as the home office and plant for Hills Brothers’ Coffee, Inc. The seven story National Landmark has 232,000 square feet of office space for rent along San Francisco’s Embarcadero. It was renovated in 1990 and became part of Hills Plaza at 345 Spear Street.

Office space in this structure has high ceilings and good light from factory-like windows. Tenants enjoy beautiful water views, including the Bay Bridge, which originates just a block away. Creative brick and exposed timber are a charming nod to the building’s history, and floor plans are mostly open layout. High end telecommunications infrastructure is found throughout.

Located right along the Embarcadero, this building has drawn such notable tenants as Google, Mozilla, Wharton/San Francisco, and Gensler Architects, among many other innovative firms. Tenants enter this building through a magnificent Renaissance Revival wrought iron entrance, and step into an elegant lobby. Natural stone in different hues contrasts beautifully, and is complemented by rich wood tones on the concierge desk and other places.

Many excellent restaurants are nearby, which means lunches are convenient and tasty. Tenants will find the Embarcadero an outstanding place to run, walk, or skate during the midday break. Mass transit is very convenient, with a light rail line running right past the building. BART/Muni, the Transbay Terminal and ferries are all within very short walking distance.

The brick building is rich with history, with the iconic Hills Brothers sign on the roof, and the immense coffee mixing tower rising above the roof line. A beautifully landscaped plaza connects this building with the other structures in Hills Plaza; this urban oasis can be viewed from the street through a splendid brick archway.
