2 Mint Plaza
Multifamily Residential, Historic Renovations
A seamless balance between the original warehouse details and modern materiality.
The Hale Warehouse project is a renovation and adaptive re-use of an existing historic 10-story warehouse on Mint Plaza in downtown San Francisco. Built in 1926, the Hale Warehouse originally served as offices and warehouses for the Hale Brother’s Department Stores, one of the city’s first premier retailers. The original structure was designed by the Reid Brothers architects, renowned for such buildings as the Fairmont Hotel and the Hotel Del Coronado in San Diego. The building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Converted into 52 light-filled residential and live/work units in 1999 / 2006, Hale Warehouse features a restored historic facade, 11’6” ceilings, expansive industrial double-hung windows, exposed concrete and plaster wall finishes, custom wood and glass sliding wall panels, and gourmet kitchens with fully integrated cabinetry, honed granite countertops, and islands with custom cast glass bar tops. The thoughtful floorplans range from studios to well appointed two-bedrooms.
Hale Warehouse shares ample amenities with the adjacent buildings, 6 and 10 Mint Plaza, including a beautifully landscaped roof deck with a custom spa and fitness center.
