The proposed redevelopment of the historic San Francisco Flower Mart property South of Market is set to go in a new direction after the project developer acquired an adjoining property at Fifth and Brannan streets.

Kilroy Realty Corp. closed on a 1.75-acre property at 620 Brannan St. on Friday, which will allow the project to grow from 1.5 million square feet to 2.1 million square feet. The larger footprint will allow Kilroy to add a “market hall” retail component to the project and create a...

Kilroy Realty Corp.'s proposed revamp of the San Francisco Flower Mart just got a lot bigger, expanding from 1.5 million square feet to 2.1 million square feet after the purchase of a new adjacent site.

The new deal will allow for the inclusion of a "market hall" and will encompass the 1.75-acre property at 620 Brannan St., which Kilroy bought on Friday. The site sold for $31 million in cash and $56 million in stock from the Zappettini family, which has owned the property since the 1950s, accordi...

There weren’t too many smiles the last time Kilroy Realty Corp. gathered media, politicians and vendors in the damp Brannan Street warehouses known as the San Francisco Flower Mart in December.

While the Los Angeles-based developer has long committed to keeping the wholesale flower market on site as it planned to construct a series of office towers there, activist and former supervisor Aaron Peskin peppered Kilroy with terse questions about how it would keep its commitments of affordable rents an...

Kilroy Realty Corp. wants the $350 million South of Market office campus built atop the current Flower Mart site to be bigger and taller than it first expected.

 

Kilroy recently filed its first proposal that outlines what it wants the whole site to look like – and it wants a Salesforce Tower-sized amount of office space. Plans show that the 5th and Brannan Streets site would include about 1.5 million square feet of offices spread across three buildings that range in height up to 250 feet tall. Th...

Kilroy Realty Corp. ended its silence about Flower Mart plans Wednesday by promising a new underground market for vendors, who likely won't have to move away while it builds towers for technology companies.

The developers and the California Flower Market, which will operate the new Flower Mart, announced that all flower tenants will be offered five-year leases at current rents. The "goal" is to keep current tenants on site or next door as construction occurs, likely from 2016 to 2018, according t...
