One Sansome DayFashion E-Commerce Site, Wish Takes Two Top Floors

SAN FRANCISCO, CA – January 13, 2015 – Barker Pacific Group (BPG) announced today that they signed three new leases at One Sansome Street.  The historic 43-story tower is now fully leased.  New tenants include affordable fashion e-commerce mobile application Wish, international luxury real estate firm Sotheby’s, and mortgage industry focused cloud-based image and document sharing company, Capsilon Technologies.  The building is now 97 percent occupied, with 100 percent of the original 587,473 rentable square feet fully committed.  Meade Boutwell, Phil Tippett, and Cori English of CBRE’s San Francisco office represented One Sansome in leasing the building.

“With these new tenants, landmark One Sansome now embodies what the new San Francisco represents,” said Michael Barker, Managing Director of BPG. “A meld of innovative young tech companies, and established longstanding powerhouses. We are proud to welcome them to the neighborhood.”

Wish signed the largest of the three new leases for 54,501 square feet for seven-years. Wish will occupy the top two floors of One Sansome and plans to move this May. Jason Burch of CTBT was the tenant broker for Wish.

In two smaller deals, Sotheby’s has leased 2,540 square feet on the sixth floor. Hudson Smythe of JLL was the broker for Sotheby’s International Realty. Capsilon Technologies leased 5,603 square feet on the seventh floor and was represented by Shap Roder of CBRE.

Construction on the high-rise began in 1983 and incorporated portions of the Holbrook Building that housed the Anglo and London Paris National Bank, which occupied the site from 1910-1981. One Sansome recently achieved LEED Platinum v.4 Certification in 2014, making it the first major office building in the world to obtain the highest green building standard.
