According to a spokesperson for the company, Pinterest has dropped its plans to move into the San Francisco Design Center at 2 Henry Adams Street and has signed a lease for space at 651 Brannan Street instead.  And it’s a move which shouldn’t catch any plugged-in readers by surprise.

As we first reported last month, in addition to a proposed Planning Code amendment which would limit the number of floors a building zoned for Production, Distribution & Repair (PDR) in San Francisco could ever convert to office use, an amendment which would limit four-story buildings, such as the Design Center, to single story of office use, a new proposal would also raise the barriers to employ the so-called “landmark loophole,” the loophole which the owners of the Design Center have been working to execute in order to clear the way for Pinterest to move into the building.

  1. Hmm. I thought maybe they’d head into the old Jessica McClintock building once ‘Looking’ is done filming there. Anyone have any idea about that space?
