Urban Land Development Unveils Office Lounge at 150 Post

San Francisco-based Urban Land Development (ULD) has opened an office lounge known as MELA, Sanskrit for “gathering place,” for tenants of 150 Post, its office buildings in San Francisco’s Union Square. Located in 150 Post’s newly renovated 7,000-square-foot penthouse suite, MELA combines a conference room and private offices, with high-style amenities and personal concierge services.

Access to the MELA lounge will be exclusive to building tenants and concierge services will be communicated via WhatsApp for tenant requests, building announcements and a calendar of ongoing events. Soon tenants at 150 Post will also have access to a s second location at 531 Bryant, now under construction in Central SOMA’s South Park. It will provide similar amenities and is on track to open in the first half of 2024.

“MELA has created a dynamic partnership with Tonic Nightlife Group, which brings decades of experience in San Francisco nightlife management and a strong network of local contacts to truly activate these two buildings for meaningful gathering, networking, and ‘edutaining’ events,” said ULD CEO Jon Mayeda.
