SPACES taps Related's Paramount to open first West Coast location in SOMA

SAN FRANCISCO – Related California announced today that SPACES, a Netherlands-based leader in co-working, has selected The Paramount, located at 680 Mission Street, as the company expands to the West Coast. Related was exclusively represented by Mark Geisreiter and Conor Famuleuer at CBRE, while SPACES was represented by Tom Poser of Jones Lang LaSalle.

SPACES will occupy the ground and second-floor levels, offering its clients a bird’s eye view of San Francisco’s bustling South of Market neighborhood – the global headquarters of some of the biggest names in technology. Terms of the lease were not disclosed.

“We’re excited to establish a base in San Francisco,” said Simon Moore, Senior Director of SPACES. “The City is bustling with innovation and this area is a magnet for people who crave a collaborative environment where they can find inspiration from their peers. Many of our global members from around the world need and want to be in the City. The Paramount is an ideal location for connecting with the greater tech and business communities.”

“The Paramount’s prime location in the SOMA neighborhood make it an attractive space for businesses and residents alike,” said Bill Witte, Chairman and CEO of Related California. “The SPACES co-working concept brings a new vibrancy to the Paramount building that will be enjoyed by residents and the SOMA community.”

SPACES offers co-working memberships, large shared areas where different companies and individuals can interact, along with private offices – all with flexible terms. Members can expect concierge-level services to help accommodate their busy lifestyles. Dry cleaning, IT support and even floral arrangements can be taken care of by the on-site staff. Free unlimited access to 1GB Wi-Fi and wired internet is available, and office clients have 24/7 building access.

Located at Third and Mission streets, The Paramount opened its doors in 2001 as the tallest residential tower in San Francisco. The 420-foot building was one of Related’s first developments in San Francisco; the company currently has several other developments in the pipeline, notably its mixed-use tower on Transbay Block 8 between Folsom between Fremont and First streets and its mixed-use project at 1500 Mission Street. With apartments ranging in size from studios to two-bedrooms, The Paramount features gourmet granite kitchens, Italian tiled baths, custom closets and a washer and dryer in every apartment. The impressive selection of amenities includes a business and internet lounge, entertainment lounge, health and fitness center with yoga room, bicycle storage room, rooftop sun terrace, outdoor terrace with BBQ grills and an outdoor swimming pool.
