30 Otis St.
Our New Home
In Fall 2021, CBSF is returning to the location we’ve operated from for nearly 20 years, but it will be a newly renovated space equipped with a brand new theatre, multiple studio spaces, outdoor public plaza, housing, and other newly constructed buildings. Located at the heart of San Francisco’s performing arts district, CBSF will be part of the strategic revitalization of San Francisco’s Market Street Hub (The Hub).
"This new mixed-use residential building proposed for 30 Otis Street consists of a 250-foot tower accompanied by an 85-foot podium building that will be part of the strategic revitalization of San Francisco’s Market Street Hub (The Hub). This historically underutilized area offers immense opportunity for the city. It is located near the rapidly-transforming Mid-Market area, and is well-suited to the development of a transit-oriented, high-density, mixed-use residential neighborhood.
Gould Evans’ design responds to The Hub’s twin imperatives for increased density and people-centered urban design. The 398,000 GSF building will contain 418 rental units, 11,000 SF of amenity space, 4,000 SF of retail space and provide expanded space for a neighborhood cultural institution. The project also proposes an elegant public plaza that is being collaboratively designed with Fletcher Studio and Mexican architect Frida Escobedo to enrich the neighborhood’s pedestrian experience.
A cornerstone of the project is the 18,000 SF of performance and instruction space for the City Ballet San Francisco, a prestigious San Francisco-based classical ballet school which has resided on the site for more than ten years. By incorporating the ballet school into the new development, the project will enable a performing arts institution to remain in the neighborhood and continue contributing to the cultural vibrancy of the greater Mid-Market/Civic Center performing arts district." - Gould Evans
"The Hub": An Old Gem
About one century ago, the Otis and 12th St. intersection was a vibrant and attractive place to be, with many local shops and businesses.
A Bittersweet Goodbye
In 2003, CBSF moved into 32 Otis St. and called it home for 16 years. Many memories were made and dreams realized here. In 2018, the building was demolished to make room for the new 27-story building.
Reclaiming "The Hub"
The 30 Otis Project works to fulfill this intersection's potential. Equipped with a ballet school, theater, outdoor public plaza, housing and other new buildings, it will no longer be a place to pass through, but a place to stay.
