THE FERRY BUILDING MARKETPLACE
San Francisco, California


BCV was the architect for both The Ferry Building Marketplace and many of its tenants. The renovation of San Francisco’s landmark, historic Ferry Building in 2002 created a thriving food destination for the city’s natives and visitors alike. The highly acclaimed Ferry Building Marketplace hosts the best of the Bay Area’s food producers, purveyors and restaurants, and supports the unique celebration of the City’s culinary life. It is also the home of the renowned Ferry Plaza Farmer’s Market. Warm brick arches with custom metal folding gates serve as the entries to tenants of all sizes, shapes and types, and integrates this completely new public level with the restored historic 660-foot long Grand Nave above.
