Our 644 Broadway renovation project was recently certified LEED Gold-CS for Core & Shell projects from the United State Green Building Council (USGBC). It was an adventurous path to Gold with our visionary clients at Cypress Properties Group, engineering consultants MHC Engineers, CCI General Contractors, and Urban Fabrick, our green building consultant. We thank everyone on the team for their dedication and determination to achieve this admirable environmental goal.

About 644 Broadway:

644 Broadway is part of a vibrant mixed-use renovation project located at the juncture of San Francisco’s Chinatown and North Beach neighborhoods. 644 Broadway is an existing four-story, 42,000 square feet mixed-use building that formerly housed the Gold Mountain Dim Sum Restaurant, a subterranean 437 seat movie theater, and offices. The adjacent 660 Broadway is a former pet store with residential units above. Both buildings have been extensively altered and combined to house an eclectic mix of creative tenants including China Live, a destination Chinese food emporium with restaurants and lounges, Boxcar Theatre company, an immersive live cabaret theater experience, Disher Sound Studios, FilmHouse X, and the San Francisco Film Society’s Filmmaker-in-Residence program.

TANNERHECHT provided full architectural services to upgrade the core and shell of both buildings, which included new communicating openings at the ground floor, new restrooms and corridors on the upper floors, new air conditioning and lighting systems throughout as well as exit stair upgrades and a new entry on Broadway. In addition TANNERHECHT provided tenant improvement design services for the San Francisco Film Society, Disher Sound Studios, and the Boxcar Theatre Company.
