140 New Montgomery

San Francisco

The former Pacific Telephone Building was the tallest building in San Francisco at the time of its construction. It sat unused for nearly six years until developer Wilson Meany completed its rehabilitation in 2013. EverGreene restored the original Art Deco ceiling in the lobby; stabilized areas of loose, delaminating or damaged plaster (consolidating wherenecessary); cleaned the ceiling; and in-painted areas to seamlessly integrate with the existing historic finish.
