News from the Left Coast: Wallace Church announces San Francisco Expansion
In our fourth year of a West Coast presence, Wallace Church is excited to announce that we have expanded our San Francisco office and have opened the doors at our new location. We have a long history of West Coast clients and we are thrilled to expand our staff on the Left Coast to better serve them and their brands.
Our designer Kevin headed the search for our new location, looking for a place that would continue to foster the creative spirit and family-like culture of our Manhattan offices, but with its own San Franciscan twist. Our West Coast team was excited to move into their new home earlier this summer and we invite our California-based friends and family to stop by for a visit!
Located at 375 Alabama Street, our new office is part of a shared 3300-square-foot space with 25-foot high ceilings and high windows that let light flood in. The building, originally built in 1926 for the Koret Clothing Co., has been fully modernized and is now home to a wide range of creative businesses including architects, photographers and designers.
Wallace Church West is located in San Francisco’s Mission District — an area known for it’s eclectic mix of urban dwellers, art galleries, local fashion labels, nightlife and dining. It’s full of unique destinations like 826 Valencia Writing Project, Dave Eggers’ educational workspace for 8 to 18-year-olds looking to hone their writing skills and The Lab, a self-described “interdisciplinary arts organization” featuring work ranging from the totally obscure to the more well-established like San Francisco native, Barry McGee.
The Mission neighborhood is one of the city’s warmest with temperatures often a few degrees higher than any other part of the city. It’s also one of the more easily accessible neighborhoods because its served by both BART and a number of MUNI rail lines, meaning East Bay doesn’t have a hard time getting to us. Whether it’s the rich history (the city’s oldest building, Mission Delores, is here), vast murals, independent art houses, or food (we’ve got everything from Salvadorian pupusas to Michelin-rated California cuisine), San Franciscans know The Mission to be the place to go for inspiration.
