Architectural Record Features the City of San Francisco’s LEED Platinum Offices

49 South Van Ness

Architectural Record’s March 2023 “Civic Architecture” issue features the LEED Platinum certified 49 South Van Ness. This SOM-designed building manifests the city of San Francisco’s efforts to streamline and modernize its workplaces and services. The development is part of a unique public-private partnership with Related California, and shares its 2.5-acre site with the 1550 Mission residential tower. 

“With its high-performance attributes, its worker-centric features, and its contributions to the broader urban environment, the citizens of San Francisco clearly got their money’s worth, and more,” writes Joann Gonchar, FAIA, Deputy Editor of Architectural Record.
