Uber Headquarters

Uber Headquarters
SHoP, with Studio O+A, will design Uber’s new headquarters in the Mission Bay neighborhood of San Francisco. The project’s goal is to bring this developing stretch of Mission Bay into step with the successful, human-scaled urban environments for which San Francisco is so famous.

Key to that goal is the “inside-out” design of the two buildings. The 423,000 square foot project includes an eleven-story tower at 1455 Third Street and a six-story structure at 1515 Third Street with an almost fully transparent facade. These adjoined buildings will be catalysts for transforming this stretch of urban blank-canvas into a dynamic, pedestrian-friendly neighborhood.

Along Third Street, a deep setback creates a generous, partially-shaded public plaza designed to support and accommodate what is expected to be increased activity at the adjacent light-rail station. The project also includes streetscape improvements and public amenities on Pierpoint Lane, an intersecting pedestrian way.

A feature known as the Commons—a striking network of circulation and gathering spaces—will bring the life of the building into contact with the life of the streets, and allow views of the living city to serve as a continual inspiration for the creative work taking place inside.
