Wharton Real Estate Tour: Behind the Scenes of San Francisco Development [SOLD OUT!]
SOLD OUT! Waitlist available Join us for a members-only tour with developer Emerald Fund exploring the 100 Van Ness project, converting office to residential real estate. Limited to 25 spots!

Tuesday, May 19, 2015

With San Francisco rents hitting an all-time high and companies moving to mid-market, the local landscape has changed dramatically.  100 Van Ness is a full-scale conversion of the former AAA office headquarters to 418 residential units. 

Emerald Fund began working on the project in 2010, contributing to the beginning of the mid-market renaissance.  What was once a drab building with concrete precast has been transformed into a sleek 29 story rental high-rise with a glass curtainwall, featuring a roof-deck with fire pits, bocce court, business center and ground-floor retail. 

100 Van Ness is the first of three projects Emerald Fund is developing in the area.  The projects will bring 1,000 new units of housing to the Civic Center neighborhood.

Participants will learn:
  • A behind the scenes glimpse of the San Francisco development process, converting a building from office to high-end residential
  • How Emerald fund has successfully managed several decades of market cycles, including two major downturns
  • Recent changes to the San Francisco rental market and what it implies for the local and real estate community
