This project included the demolition of an existing two-story-over-basement office building. The new construction will become a 12-story, 78,000 sq. ft. and 196 room Virgin Hotel located in the center of beautiful San Francisco. The hotel will have approximately 4,265 sq. ft. of restaurant, bar, and retail on the ground floor and a 1,600 sq. ft. rooftop restaurant and bar with stunning views of the city.
The façade is primarily made of glass with Kynar finished metal panels, stone, and cement plaster elements coinciding with the Virgin Hotels brand image. Vertical details and cantilevered ceilings give the building prominence and depth. The tall ground floor will create an inviting lobby and retail/restaurant bar space and will enhance the public area with a translucent glass canopy partially extending over the Fourth and Clementina Streets.
