For the first time in more than a decade, a new office building is coming to the financial district in San Francisco. Lincoln Property Co. just lined up a Chinese investor to start construction on 350 Bush St. and 500 Pine St., a two-building project that will total 428,000 square feet of Class A office space. The project, which had several false starts, will rise on the site of lots that have sat vacant in the middle of the financial district for three decades.
The taller of the two buildings, 350 Bush, consists of 19 stories and 372,000 square feet of Class A, incorporating the historic terra cotta facade and columns of the San Francisco Mining Exchange Building. The shorter building, 500 Pine St., will encompass 56,000 square foot office and retail space in five stories.
