Office-to-residential conversion is a hot topic of conversation. Seen as a potential solution to major challenges posed by the shift to flexible work in our downtown corridors, conversion is one way to increase housing density and reposition business districts into neighborhoods where people live and work. While not all office buildings are suitable or economically feasible for repositioning (read high level findings from SPUR’s report here), there are sites that can both meet the development costs and structural requirements.
Join us for a panel with leading experts in varied fields to share insights on office-to-residential conversions in San Francisco and beyond. Panelists will focus on buildings with distinctive features in promising neighborhoods or locations near business districts. The speakers will consider design, legal, and financial implications of converting existing office and mixed commercial buildings to residential uses. The discussion will primarily spotlight buildings where conditions and opportunities are most favorable to adaptive reuse and redevelopment.
