140 New Montgomery

San Francisco, CA

A stunning Art Moderne gem in the heart of San Francisco, 140 New Montgomery epitomizes the ethos of Wilson Meany – the passion for restoring historic buildings to their previous grandeur while giving new life to their interiors. The rejuvenation and re-crafting of this terracotta and granite icon honors its masterful design at the same time it transforms the space into one of the most technologically advanced in the city. 140 delivers leading edge building systems, including destination-controlled elevators; superior connectivity with a centralized network backbone; green innovations to dramatically reduce energy usage; and open, flexible workspaces that offer sweeping views of the city and bay, operable windows and high ceilings. Unbeatable pedestrian- and transit- access, sculpture garden, artisan restaurants and great next-door neighbors – the Transbay Terminal and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art – round out the appeal. 140 was 90% pre-leased prior to completion.

140 is like a piece of monumental sculpture. It reflects the magical intersection between young technology and the old fabric that makes San Francisco so special. We wanted it to speak about the past, but also the future.

Local History

A beacon to new
technology for nearly 100 years.

Called a “Monument to Talk,” The Pacific Telephone and Telegraph building opened in 1925 as a testament to the power of the latest technology – the telephone. Designed by renowned architect Timothy L. Pflueger and built by the Gladding McBean Company, the 26-story, gargoyle-topped building was San Francisco’s first high-rise and one of the tallest skyscrapers on the West Coast. It housed the telephone company for decades until it was eventually abandoned in favor of a new corporate campus in the San Francisco East Bay. Empty of tenants, the building fell into a state of benign neglect – an unseen treasure on one of the City’s busiest corners – until Wilson Meany acquired it in 2007.
