One Market Plaza

Using a palette of high-quality and modern materials, SOM transforms the public space at One Market Plaza into a bright, active, and inviting environment. The renovations and additions are designed to dramatically reposition the property in the downtown San Francisco market.

The existing concourse and atrium are converted into new and upgraded areas for commercial and retail use. “Boxcars” lined with white oak offer additional retail space and are prominently located in the main concourse, near lobby entrances for surrounding towers. Paving made of rich, gray granite provides an elegant and durable basis.

The overall identity and access to the property are bolstered with the introduction of two new entrances, one at Spear Street and one at Steuart Street. A centrally located cafe featuring a long bar and community table serve as the lively heart of the enhanced, retail-driven space.
