Nine months later and the shiny new Guild offices are ready for your visit. Staff is moving in and moving furniture around. We have plenty of desk space and wifi if you want another creative space to work. Just give Carl Hall (415-298-2265) or Kat Anderson (415-298-1335) a call and we will set you up.
If you know of a business that would like to lease the entire top floor, let us know that, too. The Guild offices are now located on the lovely second floor.
We still have a few things left on the punch list, but the relocation from Berkeley should be complete within a week.
Story from December 2016:
After eight months of construction and a nomadic existence for Guild staff, we are almost done renovating our building in downtown San Francisco. So, let’s celebrate.
All members and friends of Local 39521 are invited to our Open House at the Guild Building, 433 Natoma St., starting at 5 p.m. on Friday, December 16.
The work has been led by general contractor Peter Sheridan and architect Antje Paiz. We have removed most of the interior drywall, revealing the massive brick-and-timber skeleton of our 1910 warehouse. New ADA bathrooms have been added, along with a new conference room and skylight on the second floor.
Work is not yet complete, but it seemed close enough to give everyone a look before the furniture arrives.
The Guild has been located temporarily in the Berkeley offices of sister union in CWA, the University Professional and Technical Employees. Many thanks to UPTE for the kindness of your awesome hospitality.
We plan to move back into reduced space on the second floor soon, while leasing out our former space on the third floor and sharing some space on the second floor. Until the move-in, we can roam at will.
Tempest, our tenant on the ground floor that has remained throughout the building project, has offered to provide food. We will raise donations for some adult and other beverages.
Please make it a point to add our Open House to your holiday festivities!
RSVP to (415) 421-6833 or any Guild staffer you see.
