Levi’s Stays Put at Levi’s Plaza
Levi Strauss & Co. is staying in its longtime North Beach headquarters, Levi’s Plaza, where it has served as the anchor since the complex was built in 1981 for the jeans manufacturer. The lease encompasses the entire 355,000 square feet already occupied by Levi’s.
This classifies as the city’s largest office lease since the beginning of COVID when office workers packed up and headed to home offices last year.
Landlord Jamestown plans to invest $50 million to retrofit the nine-building Levi’s Plaza complex with electric heat pumps and solar panels. Its plan is to reach net zero carbon operations by 2025.
Levi’s Plaza comprises approximately 930,000 square feet of office space in nine buildings within 9.4 acres along the Embarcadero in the city’s northern waterfront market. One of the property’s unique amenities is the open space designed by landscape architect Lawrence Halprin, whose notable work includes Jamestown-owned Ghirardelli Square and San Francisco’s UN Plaza.
Major tenants also include Hult International Business School and Sotheby’s Realty.
