140 New Montgomery

140 New Montgomery

When it opened in 1925, the Art Deco-style Pacific Telephone Building standing at 26-stories, was the tallest building in San Francisco. It was purchased from AT&T in 2007 to be converted into residential units but, due to the 2008 downturn, remained vacant until 2012 when developer Wilson Meany Associates restored the building for office space.

As part of the $80M renovation, EverGreene restored the original Art Deco ceiling in the lobby. Conservators stabilized and consolidated areas of loose, delaminating or damaged plaster; cleaned the polychrome ceiling; and in-painted areas to seamlessly integrate missing and damage areas with the existing historic finish.

140 New Montgomery now serves as the headquarters for Yelp and is a LEED Gold certified sustainable project.
