Working from home, full or part time, is a cultural paradigm shift leaving millions of square feet of commercial office space vacant or under-utilized. At the same time, the housing crisis facing the San Francisco Bay Area is dire, challenging our social structure and the area's economic viability and growth. These two significant headwaters may provide the opportunity for a synergistic solution: converting office buildings into multifamily housing, whether market-rate, affordable or supportive, for rent or for sale.
This interactive session will consider the potential for the adaptive re-use of office building-to-residential and many of the issues that impact their consideration, both positively and negatively. Discussion will include what is needed to convert buildings into housing, important factors to consider when evaluating office to housing conversion.
