ABOUT

Built to serve a rapidly growing city and a thriving regional economy, the San Francisco Mint is a community gathering place rich with history – and one now available for private events. Located just a coin’s toss from Moscone Center in downtown San Francisco this classical revivalist venue has been renovated to accommodate modern production without losing its historical grandeur. At 92,000 square feet, the Mint promises an unparalleled experience.

 

HISTORY

The SF Mint was constructed in 1874 to serve a burgeoning state and local economy, and is one of the few buildings to survive the 1906 earthquake.

Long-term Plans for the Mint

San Francisco’s Office of Economic and Workforce Development (OEWD) is leading the San Francisco Mint Restoration Project – the City’s effort to fully renovate The SF Mint and establish it as a destination cultural venue. OEWD has identified the California Historical Society (CHS) as its community partner for this important project. The City selected CHS after a publicly announced Request for Proposals process. CHS and the City are currently working together on the project’s due diligence phase – during which time all aspects of the renovation scheme will be assessed and a full reuse proposal developed. More info can be found at oewd.org/oldmint.

It is the City’s intention that The SF Mint continue to serve as a community gathering space and event venue until such time as work can begin on the long-term restoration project.
