3180 18TH STREET, SAN FRANCISCO — 415.291.1715

The original 1902 design of 3180 18th Street included two separate three-story office and manufacturing buildings utilized by the C.A. Malm Company. The 0.5 acre site was redeveloped in 1986 by the Plant Family when the two buildings were joined and seismically retrofitted. Today the building has 37,170 square feet of leasable space and includes 25 secured parking stalls.

Ownership is in the process of upgrading all common areas, renovating the entryway, and adding amenities to both the front and rear of the site. Exhibiting high, exposed wood ceilings and open, creative floor plans, The Pioneer Building is positioned as one of the few properties in the Mission District zoned for office space.

3180 18th Street was originally constructed in 1902 by Thomas Welsh, who designed and built the building for use as the Pioneer Trunk Factory for Malm and Co. The original design consisted of two three-story, wood-framed buildings that housed all of the operations for the assembly of their travel trunks until the 1930s.

Left in disrepair, the Plant Family restored the buildings to their original Italianate style in 1986 by joining the two structures and performing a thorough seismic retrofit. By combining the historic nature with modern renovations that identify with the Mission neighborhood, the new ownership hopes to preserve the integrity of the building that has defined it since the early 1900s while meeting the needs of today’s technology and creative office tenants.
