The Buzzell Building is a recently renovated, flexible floor plate, historic, brick & timber property which is ideal for a single tenant user in the post-Covid environment. The approximately 22,000 square foot property boasts soaring ceilings throughout its three above ground floors, ranging in height from 12 feet to 35’ ft for the 6,400 square ft. ground floor “Shop Space”. The property benefits from various breakout areas and pods, including private offices, conference rooms, and a large functional kitchen and break room. Multiple ADA restrooms service each of the three floors. A functional lower level provides storage and production space with tremendous value. An architectural skywalk connects the large glass enclosed Conference Quarters, which perches over “The Shop.” The spaciousness and flexibility of this architectural gem is cut perfectly for a single tenant with diverse needs and an eye on safety and security. The property is serviced by both a newer passenger elevator and the historic freight elevator. Heavy power is certain to meet or surpass any potential tenant requirements. Classified as a masonry reinforced building, the property is also seismically sound.
When construction of the Buzzell Building began in 1920, the City was bouncing back from the Spanish Flu Pandemic of 1918. A century later, the architecture of the Building reflects those eerily similar attitudes and concerns we have today as we rebound from the Covid-19 Pandemic. The property has been owned by the Buzzell Family since its development in 1920. Pride of ownership and attention to detail defines the property and its evolution over the past century. Notably, the property has been meticulously preserved and consistently updated and maintained over the years, most recently completing a gut renovation in 2013.
Located just South of Market street on the corner of 8th/Minna(Mission), one block from Bart, and four blocks from the entry onto 80/101, the property provides for excellent accessibility to all major transportation. Further, given the burgeoning growth South of Market, and particularly in the Western SOMA neighborhood, The Buzzell Building’s location allows for true San Francisco walkability. Bike racks in the basement provide additional commuter options.
Over 100 years later, The Buzzell Building is once again available to this generation’s “new normal” and our Covid-19 Pandemic recovery.
