SAN FRANCISCO- Brookfield Office Properties (BPO) announced Jones Lang LaSalle (NYSE: JLL) has been appointed exclusive leasing agent for newly acquired 685 Market Street in San Francisco. Christopher T. Roeder, International Director and Jak Churton, Managing Director will lead the JLL team.

Also known as the Monadnock Building, 685 Market Street is a historically significant Class A office building positioned between established high profile commercial neighborhoods in the city’s central business district and SOMA and the rapidly emerging Mid Market neighborhood.

The approximate 205,000 square foot, 10-story building was under construction at the time of the San Francisco earthquake in 1906. It not only survived the earthquake and the ensuing fire, it also survived two demolition attempts by the U.S. Army.

“This is a high quality building with a storied history in a thriving location. It is ideal for a broad range of tenants, from creative companies to professional firms, seeking open plan layouts where they can incorporate collaborative space with efficient workspaces,” said Chris Roeder.

685 Market Street enjoys excellent public transportation amenities and sits on one of the most heavily travelled blocks by pedestrians in the city. The immediate area around the building features restaurants and retail stores and it is a short walk from the Union Square shopping district, the Moscone Convention Center and the new Transbay Transit Center under construction at Howard St.
