Westfield San Francisco Centre and Bloomingdale's | Executive Architect

The owner-developer partnership of Westfield Corp. and Forest City made possible the $460 million redevelopment that turned Westfield San Francisco Centre into one of the nation’s largest urban retail, office and entertainment destinations.

The Emporium Development Store, a cherished, historic landmark, was incorporated into the development and its distinctive architectural features strengthened and restored. Most notably, its famed 102-foot diameter glass and steel dome was raised three stories up where it serves as a skylight and focal point at the intersection of the center’s concourses. Visitors to the center may enjoy a dramatic eye-level view of the dome from two rooftop terraces above the center.

Street-level retail along Market Street sits at the base of first-class office space, creating a “self-contained business hub” that interacts seamlessly with the center’s shopping and dining offerings. A Bloomingdale’s, second in size only to the chain’s flagship store in New York City, connects to the center on all five of its levels and is anchored on top by a 9-screen Century Theaters and CineArts theater complex.

Design Team:

  • RTKL – Design Architect
  • John Pendersen Fox Associates – Design Architect (Bloomingdale’s façade)
  • RYA – Interior Architect (Bloomingdale’s)
