Westfield San Francisco Centre

Consisting of over 1.5 million square feet of specialty retail and entertainment facilities, this project was constructed within and around the existing historical Emporium department store and shopping center building.

Bullet 1.5M SF
Bullet $460M construction cost

The developers, a joint venture between Forest City Partners and Westfield, worked with the City's Redevelopment Agency to restore the remarkable Market Street facade to its original grace as well as the existing building's extraordinary dome and rotunda. The main anchor tenant, Bloomingdale's, occupies a total of 385,000 sf, making it the chain’s second-largest location in the United States, and is responsible for the all-glass Mission Street facade. The remaining spaces are occupied by various high-end retail establishments such as Juicy Couture, Hugo Boss, Coach, L'Occitane and Bristol Farms; many making their first Bay Area appearance. Also featured are many destination restaurants, an extensive 40,000 sf food court, a 9-screen Century Movie Theater and a large entertainment attraction. 

The top floors contain 235,000 sf of corporate office spaces for Microsoft Inc. and Forest City Partner’s San Francisco headquarters, as well as the Master’s Degree program for San Francisco State University. In addition to providing mechanical, electrical, plumbing/fire protection, security and telecommunications engineering design services for the base building, WSP provided these same services for the commercial tenants.

The seven-story, mixed-use facility connects to the existing adjacent San Francisco Shopping Centre. When combined, they offer shoppers the largest shopping spot in California.  Not only centrally located downtown, the facility also connects to the existing subterranean Powell Street BART and MUNI station making the Centre easy to visit.
