The Conco Companies are providing concrete services for a new office building in downtown San Francisco located at 350 Bush Street. The new 20-story high-rise will have 18 floors of office space, one lobby level, and a roof terrace as well as a two-level subgrade parking structure. In addition as the office tower will incorporate the San Francisco Mining Exchange, a historic landmark, as its primary entrance, the project also includes the “Historic Renovation of San Francisco Mining Exchange Building.”
The client on the project is the Lincoln Property Company and Hathaway Dinwiddie is serving as the general contractor. The project was designed by the architectural firm of Heller Manus Architects and integrates the terra cotta façade and the columns of the landmark building with the office tower. The plan calls for a grand lobby in the historic exchange hall as well as a galleria at the street level. Once complete, the project will include 469,000 square feet of new and renovated space and will be a balance of antique and modern. The building is seeking LEED Platinum certification and will feature a number of environmentally advanced technologies.
The Mining Exchange building was constructed in 1923 and for a short time was used as the Stock Exchange. It was designed by Miller & Pflueger, an architectural firm that designed a number of significant S.F. buildings of the time and closely resembles the New York Stock Exchange that had been constructed twenty years earlier.
Through the years, the building was used for the San Francisco Curb Exchange from 1928-1938, the San Francisco Chamber of Commerce from 1938-1967, and finally the Western Title Insurance from 1967-1979. It has sat empty since 1979.
Conco’s mission is to be the best supplier of concrete services in the Western United States and to bring experience, expertise and quality to each project. We continue to upgrade and expand facilities to better serve the growing market for public works projects, commercial, educational, parking structures, and other construction development.
