2 Shaw Alley

Financial District, San Francisco, CA

About 2 Shaw Alley

The historic, turn of the 20th century building at 2 Shaw Alley, San Francisco, is also known as 545 Mission Street. Built in 1907, the 5-story building has more than 28,000 square feet of rentable office and retail space. The upscale restaurant Salt House Tavern anchors the building in the heart of FiDi.

Exposed timber and brick enhances the office space and gives a nod to the building’s history as an old printing press warehouse. The narrow building enjoys good natural light from three sides of the building, through 12 foot high windows; the upper floor has skylights as well. Full floor identity is available in this creative/loft space, which has 12-15 foot exposed ceilings.

Full HVAC and operable windows provide excellent interior air quality. Full kitchens are found on every floor. Offices are optimally wired. A roof deck provides a place for tenants to get dose of sunshine and enjoy the cityscape during the workday breaks.

With excellent proximity to BART and Muni stations, tenants will find commuting convenient. The new Transbay Terminal, under construction, will be quite close by, bringing a hub of commuting options within shouting distance of this building. A new office tower on the northeast side, slated for completion in 2014, will transform Shaw Alley into a pleasant pedestrian plaza and sculpture garden, adding value for tenants.

The stone and brick building has been painted with contrasting earth tones. Metal architectural rivets that anchor the floor beams can be seen on the exterior of the structure, recalling its industrial past. This elegant historical building combines the old with the new in this rapidly expanding financial district.
