Urban Land Development Starting Construction on Boutique Office Project in San Francisco


Demolition is underway for construction of 531 Bryant, the first ground-up boutique office development in the South Park neighborhood of San Francisco’s Central SoMa. The building, a development of Urban Land Development (ULD) and its privately held real estate fund Urban Land Capital, is expected to be ready for occupancy July 2023.

531 Bryant will also be the first post-pandemic, best-in-class office building in San Francisco. It will be designed and built with an emphasis on the feel of hospitality as if in a four-star hotel, as well as a targeted focus on today’s high-tech/low-touch interior/exterior healthy workplace environment.

“The 531 experience is about delivering a work environment that will attract employees back to the office by being in a technology-rich and diverse neighborhood of San Francisco in a new iconic building designed for a healthy workstyle,” said ULD Managing Director Susan Sagy. “ULD is committed to providing the ‘right model’ for today’s workplace, which means ensuring a safe, healthy office environment with an abundance of outdoor space for working, dining, and relaxing. The building is designed to deliver 100% outside air, interconnecting stairs with floor-to-ceiling glass, and stunning views of downtown San Francisco, as well as offering full-building control and identity to a smaller office user.”

The 51.4k sf structure, designed by Handel Architects, will project a textured industrial character in keeping with the neighborhood while delivering state-of-the-art systems incorporating the capacity for 100% outside air, merv filtration and energy efficiency to ensure employee well-being. The property is designed with the same amenities as larger buildings, including lifestyle space for yoga, meditation, dining, and socializing, in addition to showers, lockers, bike parking and repair to break up the day by stretching both mind and body.

Exterior amenities include a landscaped rooftop terrace with panoramic views of the San Francisco City skyline and a 700-square-foot balcony dedicated to the 5th floor. On Zoe Street the building will feature micro retail units for local food entrepreneurs opening to a streetside patio, as well as a sculpture garden courtyard featuring the work of local Bay Area artists.

Committed to its one percent onsite public art program, ULD is working with United Playaz, West Bay Pilipino Multi-Service Center, and SOMA Pilipinas to create a sculpture garden in the courtyard featuring work from Bay Area artists, as well as a mural to be created by a local artist.

The property is located in the vibrant Central SoMa neighborhood, the epicenter of tech and innovation, with dozens of established companies including innovative “unicorn” companies such as Pinterest, Airbnb, Adobe, Splunk, Cruise, Lyft, and Paypal. It is a block from a cluster of venture capital companies, including Accel Partners, Norwest Venture Partners, and Kleiner Perkins.

Leasing of the project is led by Chris Roeder, John Norton, and Carlye Parker with JLL.
