We are looking forward to tomorrow!
And this is what tomorrow will look like on our corner of 6th & Brannan and our San Francisco Flower Mart!
The end of 2014 we partnered with Kilroy Realty to collaborate and create a state-of-art flower market, right here on the corner of 6th & Brannan St. Over the last year and a half we’ve been busy. The images in this post are of some of the renderings the design committee has come up with to showcase what the flow of flowers and people might look in the very near future.
Our San Francisco Flower Mart will be the centerpiece to this mixed-use urban setting in our ever-changing SOMA neighborhood. The project will consist of 115,000 sq ft of flower mart warehouse space large enough to accommodate all tenants of the existing flower market, 100,000 sq ft of retail space, along with 40,000 sq ft of open public space.
The improved SFFM layout will include secured entry points, as well as direct access to loading and parking to better service both input and output activities. 24-foot-high ceilings and strategically placed skylights create a light and airy feel inside of the warehouse and provide enough space for a multipurpose mezzanine level along the perimeter of the market.
The specific details of the new facility will be further developed over the next several months by Kilroy Realty Corporation, San Francisco Flower Mart LLC, and a committee of Flower Mart tenants to ensure that the new market functions efficiently and effectively for businesses and customers. So stay tuned, we’re excited!
