Cushman & Wakefield’s Northern California headquarters are located in the epicenter of the Financial District at 425 Market Street, Suite 2300 in San Francisco. Within convenient proximity to SOMA, Union Square, The Transbay Transit Center and Salesforce Tower, we are situated next door to 50 Fremont Street, approximately seven blocks from the iconic Transamerica Pyramid and walking distance to the San Francisco Ferry Building.

Design Winner 2014: Minimalism Meets Modernism
The 27,000-square-foot state-of-the-art office, designed by Gensler and constructed by BCCI Builders, won the 2014 Interior Design Best of Year Awards.

We’re extremely proud of our work environment, which is just the latest component of our ongoing efforts to develop solutions that empower our clients.”

Among many other notable achievements, the San Francisco branch of Cushman & Wakefield represented salesforce.com, the world’s #1 CRM platform, in a record-breaking office lease of approximately 714,000 square feet at 415 Mission Street. The transaction, which is the largest office lease in San Francisco history, includes renaming the 1,070-foot tall Cesar Pelli-designed structure Salesforce Tower. Upon completion, Salesforce Tower will rise majestically over the San Francisco skyline and the top floor will have eclipsed the Transamerica Pyramid by 220 feet. It will also be the tallest building west of the Mississippi.


High Tech in The Sky
“Design features of the Market Street office include collaborative open spaces, glass-office fronts and expanded conference and meeting facilities that incorporate the latest in audio/visual technology,” said Robin Addams, Cushman & Wakefield West Region Managing Director for Marketing and Communications. “In addition to a beautiful space in a superb location, we’re also better equipped with the technology required by today’s tech-savvy clients.”

Among the plethora of modern amenities, this space includes a spacious kitchen, a variety of comfortable client seating areas, numerous enclosed glass mini offices for phone privacy and sleek Knoll furniture reflective of today’s discriminating San Francisco style.


Cushman & Wakefield San Francisco has advised on some of the most notable Northern California CRE transactions, including the sale of the Tiffany Building in Union Square, the iconic Phelan Building and the new Chase Arena, home of the NBA Warriors. Our brokers also advised on several of the largest leasing transactions in San Francisco, including deals for Salesforce.com at 50 Freemont, 350 Mission, One Rincon, and Hudson Pacific Properties’ lease to Square Inc. at 1455 Market Street.
