San Francisco, CA
Reigning over a sea of passersby on the corner of Powell and Market Streets near Union Square is the Flood Building, a registered San Francisco Landmark. The Flood family, descendants of James Flood who constructed the building in 1904, retained principals of Wilson Meany to redevelop the 12-story beauty – a rare downtown survivor of the 1906 earthquake and fire. The renovation included a complete rehabilitation of the building’s lower three floors and meticulous restoration of the original Colusa sandstone façade. Flagship retail tenants benefit from the area’s significant pedestrian traffic. The project received awards of merit from San Francisco Heritage and the California Chapter of the AIA.
