London Breed’s Initiative to Boost Downtown SF: Office Conversions for a Thriving Urban Landscape

San Francisco Mayor London Breed has announced a new initiative to encourage and support converting underutilized office buildings for other purposes, as part of the city’s vision for the future of downtown. The initiative is intended to build on legislation passed last week that simplified the approval process and requirements for converting existing commercial buildings into housing. 

The Mayor’s office has issued a request for interest from property owners, developers, and architects looking to transform downtown offices into something different. The initiative is aimed at strengthening San Francisco’s economic vibrancy and supporting downtown, which is more important now than ever before.

The plan is part of Mayor Breed’s “Roadmap to Downtown San Francisco’s Future” and is intended to jumpstart office-to-housing conversions and fill up vacant retail space in Union Square. The legislation proposed by Mayor Breed and Board of Supervisors President Aaron Peskin to support Downtown’s future has been approved by the Board of Supervisors. The legislation aims to restore Downtown, where offices are 29.4% vacant.

Mayor Breed’s initiative is a creative way to repurpose underutilized office space and support San Francisco’s economic recovery. The initiative is intended to support education, art, research, and manufacturing. By providing creative ideas and important insights on how to bring these policies to life in real projects, City stakeholders can make a real difference for economic recovery and the city for everyone.
