Pinterest's Design District deal would push out tenants

Pinterest's Design District deal would push out tenants | Corporate Responsibility | Scoop.it
Pinterest, the San Francisco darling of crafters and do-it-yourself enthusiasts, has signed a deal to take over a four-story brick warehouse in the heart of San Francisco's Showplace Square Design District. Just as showroom businesses are bouncing back from the recession, dozens of tenants in the San Francisco Design Center building at 2 Henry Adams St. face likely eviction if the landlord is successful in obtaining the approvals needed to convert the 311,000-square-foot building into Pinterest's headquarters. Landmark designationIn spring 2013, Bay West Development, the property management firm hired by building owner RREEF in Chicago, filed an application with the city Planning Department to obtain landmark designation for the building. The San Francisco Historic Preservation Commission unanimously approved the designation, and it was cruising toward final approval at the Board of Supervisors when Supervisor Malia Cohen learned of the Pinterest deal. At a time when warehouses across her district are being knocked down to make way for $1 million condominiums, Cohen said the potential ousting of small businesses at 2 Henry Adams St. is worrisome. Cohen had the city's planning staff put together a list of other potentially historic PDR buildings that could be converted - 14 structures totaling 1 million square feet. [...] she said, the property management has been traipsing through the space with entourages of prospective tech tenants, commercial brokers and architects. While the showrooms may not have the on-site blue-collar jobs commonly associated with PDR, the buildings are the underpinning of an ecosystem of skilled trades for people who are able to earn a living wage without a college education, Gallagher said. Several design center tenants echoed Murphy's contention that Pinterest - which designers use to showcase their goods - is a nice fit at 2 Henry Adams St. Joe Gaul, a partner with custom furniture maker GaulSearson, said the footprint of his business has declined from 25,000 square feet in the early 1970s to 9,000 square feet today. For its part, Pinterest would like to stay close to its current spot on Brannan Street, "but drawn to the building by the prospect of ... having our company embedded with the very design community that is at the heart of our service," said company spokesman Barry Schnitt.
