A former light industrial building for fine wood-working, 333 Valencia langusihed for years as a poorly-adapted class-C commcerical building despite its prime location in San Francisco’s Mission District. Faced with a major seismic upgrade, brick. worked with the historic building’s already great features and used the lightest touch possible to trandform an underutilized building into a class-A gem.
The seismic includes pouring ~315CY of added mat slab to the foundations, adding shear walls to strengthen the core and provide more strength in the event of an earthquake, and installing new structural steel & FRP to distribute the forces throughout the building. The core and shell buildout includes new restrooms, installation of two new elevators and stair systems as well as complete tenant improvement upgrades throughout the upper three floors.
