Culinary Icon to open Boutique Crenn at Salesforce Tower

San Francisco’s new icon, Salesforce Tower, has a new tenant – Dominique Crenn. Dominique Crenn has signed a lease to occupy approximately 4,000 SF on the corner of First and Mission with an additional 1,000 SF of space in the lobby.

“To simply call Dominique a “Chef” would be a disservice, as she truly is a unique artist with food being the medium she works with.” Bob Pester, Executive Vice President of Boston Properties comments.

In the culinary world, Dominique Crenn is a force to be reckoned with. Her two-Michelin-starred restaurant Atelier Crenn (she was the first woman to ever achieve this honor), and casual offshoot Petit Crenn continue to thrive, while her latest project Bar Crenn will open this month. Her new concept at Salesforce Tower, “Boutique Crenn” is targeted to open in Winter 2018.

Boutique Crenn will be a curation of French concepts with sustainability and consciousness at the forefront. The space will represent the intersection of fashion, art and cuisine, offering a unique level of engagement to guests. In addition to a wine and cocktail lounge that will share space with the main lobby, Boutique Crenn will feature pastries and breads made from scratch and breakfast and lunch fare with many of the ingredients sourced from the Crenn Dining Group’s organic farm located in Sonoma.

Retail West represented Crenn in this transaction.

Construction for the Salesforce Tower began in 2013. Salesforce Tower boasts 1.4 million square feet of beautifully designed space which is now 97% leased. The project is being co-developed by Boston Properties and Hines, with Boston Properties owning a 95% interest in the project and Hines owning a 5% interest. Boston Properties will manage and operate the tower. The architectural team is led by design architect, Pelli Clarke Pelli and Kendall Heaton as the architect of record.
