Ferry Building Undergoes Restoration Project

According to a recent article, our neighbor, The Ferry Building will be receiving a light renovation, beginning this fall. So what can we expect to see from the restoration?  Here’s a glimpse of insight from the Ferry Building Marketplace website’s restoration page:

2019 New Paint Color Selections
Hudson Pacific Properties and Allianz, in close consultation with their design consultants and the Port’s Planning and Preservation staff, selected new colors for the building that both relate to its historic roots and reflect its civic importance at the terminus of Market Street. Investigation was undertaken to uncover sections of original Colusa sandstone to use as a starting point for the new color selection. The building’s new paint color, for which Sherwin-Williams custom blended “Ferry Building Gray,” responds to the varied warm gray tones of Colusa sandstone, and will be accented by a slightly darker color for windows, trim and decorative spandrels. The new clocktower color will match the warm color of adjacent pier bulkheads to tie the building to its maritime neighbors as the crowning jewel of the San Francisco waterfront.

The renovation is scheduled to take approximately two years to complete and will not have an adverse effect on access to the Ferry Building’s shops or commuters access to the ferries.

Just because there is work being done, the fun events don’t take a break.  Here are a few upcoming fall events sure to be a hit with all:
