Office/Retail Building on Market Street in San Francisco Listed for Sale


A six-story plus basement, 50.9k sf office and retail building located on San Francisco’s Market Street has been put on the market. The property, 1049 Market, offers the buyer one of the first office-to-residential conversion opportunities in San Francisco.

The property is zoned C-3-G, which permits a wide range of uses including residential, office and life science. The flexible zoning allows for a variety of business plans, including leasing the office space as-is, completing upgrades to increase rents or converting the building from office space to residential.

The property offers a prominent Market Street location surrounded by multiple new residential projects, a new IKEA store and the new 700k sf 5M project. The transit-oriented and highly walkable location is just steps to BART and MUNI. The building is also proximate to some of San Francisco’s finest retail and entertainment offerings including Whole Foods, Mikkeller Bar SF, Proper Hotel, The Melt, Westfield San Francisco, The Warfield and Montesacro.

Mark Geisreiter, Seth McKinnon and Nadav Kariv with Newmark are the investment sales advisors marketing the property on behalf of the seller. An asking price was not given out.

“With an office vacancy rate above 17% and strong residential demand in San Francisco, there is significant investor interest in converting office buildings into residential projects,” said Geisreiter. “1049 Market Street—the first conversion opportunity on the market in the area—offers a prime location, favorable floor configuration and existing improvements suitable for residential, making it an ideal candidate for conversion.”

Given relatively stronger market fundamentals, U.S. investors have increased allocations to multifamily properties while decreasing allocations to office assets over the past several years, according to Real Capital Analytics data analyzed by Newmark Research. Between 2007 and 2011, investors allocated 22% of commercial real estate investment dollars to multifamily assets and 28% to office assets. As of the first quarter of 2022, office allocations had declined to 15% while multifamily allocations had risen to 34%, the highest of all major property types.
