85 Bluxome Street Site

The financing to raze one of the last original porn studios left in SoMa and construct a five-story office building on its Bluxome Street site has been secured and the official groundbreaking for the 55,000 square foot development has been scheduled for next month.

Directly across the street from the massive San Francisco Tennis Club which likely isn’t long for this world, the 81-85 Bluxome Street project will yield 55,000 square feet of office space between Fourth and Fifth Streets, with open floor plates to allow for the build-out of “creative office space,” a roof-top patio for tenants, and secured interior bicycle parking, showers and changing rooms (but no off-street parking for autos).

Designed by RIM Architects, the development will also include a number of sidewalk improvements, such as bike racks and a number of new street trees.  And the building’s façade will incorporate “a prominent piece of artwork above the entry – a permanently installed ceiling/canopy feature.”

The 81 Bluxome Street building should be ready for occupancy by the end of 2015.

    Too bad. A porn studio is far more interesting.

    This was the old Hot House Studios. Night time down there is no place to leave a car. Why on earth in such an easy place to do it not include parking?

      I know what you mean. That area is absolutely impossible to get to without a car. What the hell are people thinking?

      Absolutely impossible? I guess I must have visited a different Bluxome St. then.

    If what you want is “creative office space” just leave it alone.

    Meanwhile across town NakedSword’s closed up abandoned office is for lease since they have been forced to move into Raging-Falcon’s old porn studio after all the Falcon producers were forced to move to Las Vegas to avoid HIV testing.

    How much longer till the Raging Falcon office in SF is closed for good?
