Veterans Commons

150 Otis Street, San Francisco

Seismic upgrade and adaptive reuse of an existing 9 story “high-rise” historic building. The building was converted from offices to 76 residential units for formerly homeless or at-risk veterans. The conversion required structural, mechanical, and fire and life safety upgrades. Additionally, a new elevator bank was added to the structure to accommodate elevators serving each floor while also providing seismic strengthening. The ground floor includes community kitchens, meeting rooms, and property management offices. The project was supported by the Mayor’s Office of Housing.
