BPG to Transform Iconic San Francisco Office Tower

Barker Pacific Group (BPG) has announced it will transform Citigroup Center at One Sansome, the soaring 42-story tower, into a new entertainment and hospitality hub as San Francisco’s Financial District welcomes back workers, conventioners and tourists.

BPG, which has already spent more than $100 million in renovations since acquiring One Sansome in 2010, will redo the building’s expansive lobby and atrium into a gathering place for the neighborhood. Plans call for a stylish private event facility, an eye-popping local bar and an upscale restaurant arranged across multiple ground-floor spaces.

Newly formed hospitality company PLEASE FIDI, LLC has signed a lease with BPG to operate the restaurant, bar and event facility as well as provide catering. “One Sansome is central to San Francisco’s Financial District, offering a perfect location to host a wide range of business and social functions in an iconic, light filled space with easy transit access,” said BPG’s CEO Michael Barker in a news release.
