San-Francisco-Art-Institute-Campus-aerialSAN FRANCISCO, Calif., June 27, 2023 – Cushman & Wakefield has been retained to sell the historic San Francisco Art Institute campus at 800 Chestnut Street in San Francisco’s Russian Hill neighborhood. This is an opportunity to acquire one of the largest tracts of private property in San Francisco improved with a pair of education structures designated City Landmark #85. The property contains an original 1931 Diego Rivera which is available for acquisition along with the real estate.

Cushman & Wakefield’s Tom Christian and Tim Garlick are leading the property marketing and sales efforts.

The improvements consist of two buildings totaling approximately 93,000 square feet. The original structure, with its iconic bell tower, interior courtyard, Anne Bremer library, classrooms, galleries, and offices, was built in 1926 and was designed by architects Bakewell and Brown. The addition built in 1968 was designed by Pafford Keatinge-Clay and has both a rooftop amphitheater, interior theater, galleries, studios, and vast plazas with views. The structures are situated on a site totaling just under 1.75 acres.

“This is a very special landmark property and will make an inspiring home for another education institution, museum or other creative / innovative use,” said Executive Managing Director Tom Christian.
