About 398 5th St

The potential identity building at 398 5th Street is in a prime San Francisco South of Market location. The two-story structure built in 1926 has 4,500 square feet of both office and retail/industrial space to rent.

The ground floor space is currently used for a light industrial application. With 2,250 square feet available, the unit is fully wired and has two south-fronting bays with metal roll-up garage doors. Built out retail space fronts on both Harrison and 5th Streets, and has great wraparound storefront glass.

The second floor walk-up commercial space is creative/loft design, with mostly open floor plan and high ceilings. A conference room and one private office are included in the 2,250 square foot space. Wide, tall windows allow natural light to pour in. Both units have excellent signage opportunity and great street visibility.

These lines have quick service to the Powell BART station several blocks north off of 5th Street, or the Caltrain terminal, several blocks south on 5th.

The well-maintained reinforced concrete building clad in smooth stucco is favorably positioned on a major 5th Street corner. The oversized, factory-style windows on the upper floor add to street appeal.
