WeWork’s Newest San Francisco Location is a Former Mid-Market Basement BankAuthor:Michelle Konstantinovsky
WeWork has made a name for itself as the leader in chic workspaces for savvy entrepreneurs and with the opening of its fourth San Francisco location, the company is proving itself to be a real estate pioneer as well. The newest site, located at 1460 Mission Street is a converted former bank vault basement that’s been transformed into a light, airy space. Drawing inspiration from the history of its Mid-Market surroundings and Northern California landscapes, the WeWork team implemented innovative design elements to turn the long-vacant basement into a collaborative space for business and local community events.
The new location features a dramatic vertical green wall, a community bar installation lined with vintage MUNI tickets, and an uplit boulevard marked by a series of communal work tables and lounges; centered by a suspended neon installation focal point inspired by the historic clocktower at the west end of Mid-Market.
The Mission Street site spans across 66,056 square feet which 1,000 members call their work home. Also housed in the space is WeWork’s Flatiron School, which provides accelerated programming curriculum. A few of the notable design features include extra roomy communal lounge spaces, a special lighting strategy to create a fresh, bright feel throughout, ‘floating’ conference rooms to emphasize the height of the space topped with greenery, and a suspended neon installation centerpiece.
