The rehabilitation of the newly branded Market Square, San Francisco’s former Merchandise Mart, reintroduced an Art Deco-style terracotta building to a struggling part of town as a centerpiece around which to rally. The exterior rehabilitation, complete with its replacement windows, façade rehabilitation, marquee canopy restoration, and its new tenant, Twitter, Inc., have brought new life to the Mid-Market area of San Francisco. The project has been highlighted as an “Urban Game Changer,” one symbolic of the relationship between today’s urban renewal and the power of preservation.
