While currently leased to Mini of San Francisco, plans to renovate and repurpose the historic Willis Polk and Co. designed building on the southwest corner of Van Ness Avenue and Eddy are in the works.

And as envisioned, the 45,000-square-foot building, which was purchased for $8 million in 2012, will become a private fitness club, with weights in the basement; cardio, group fitness rooms and “VIP” facilities on the first floor; and a private restaurant, lounge, locker rooms and indoor pool, complete with a retractable roof and daybeds, on the second floor.

We’ll keep you posted and plugged-in.

    Is there really that much demand for overpriced fitness establishments in this city?

    I always thought this was a handsome building. It would make for a great podium for a residential tower to rise above it. This is a solid activation and “intermediary” use until then!

    Zoned height limit to 130ft. Is the entire building historic or just the facade? Seems like a huge missed opportunity.

    Needs to be a grocery store far more than a gym
