Hooper Street: What Happened to the Storage Units?

Not that we miss them, but what happened to the storage units on the big lot at Hooper and 7th Streets?

The 3.3 acre property recently was recently purchased by Kilroy Realty Corp.

Kilroy will build a 400,000-square-foot, two-building campus that will include 320,000 square feet of office space and another 80,000 square feet of space dedicated to “production, distribution and repair,” or PDR. Construction will begin later this year.

In addition, Kilroy will donate a portion of the land to the nonprofit PlaceMade to provide affordable space for designers, inventors, manufacturers, and other related industrial users in San Francisco. PlaceMade, an affiliate of the group SFMade, will build a separate 56,000-square-foot building it will own and manage.

PlaceMade’s mission is to secure long-term affordable industrial space to support a vibrant manufacturing sector in San Francisco, in order to sustain companies producing locally-made products and thus create employment opportunities for a diverse local workforce.

We're all for making!
