Cory Creath, Principal Architect at AXIS/GFA Architecture + Design, was the Project Manager at Gensler for this addition and modernization of a Category One historic building in the heart of San Francisco’s Financial District. The commercial architectural project called for seismically strengthening the building’s core while adding new high-speed elevators to serve re-purposed office floors. Unfortunately, the project was abandoned after being fully entitled and permitted.
