San Francisco’s Park Tower at Transbay Delivers

The John Buck Company, Golub & Company and MetLife recently completed development of Park Tower at Transbay, a 45-story office building in San Francisco. Located at Howard and Beale streets in the city’s Transbay district, the 803,700-square-foot tower sits across the street from the new Transbay Transit Center and will be fully occupied by Facebook.

The 605-foot tall tower was designed by global architecture firm Goettsch Partners with a massing that integrates three different floor plates. A series of large outdoor terraces are carved out of the distinct floor plates to provide substantial outdoor tenant amenity spaces, or mini “parks in the sky.”

The base of the LEED Gold certified tower has a covered 3,600-square-foot outdoor plaza with a 35-foot-high ceiling. The area is designated as privately owned public outdoor space (POPOS) abutting the tower’s main lobby and adjoining retail space. The major focal point of the space is a large, site-specific art installation, entitled “Night Writing” by Teresita Fernandez, that’s surrounded by a series of seating areas.
