Our San Francisco office is in the historic Clocktower Building, which we redesigned as a live-work space in 1996.

DBA San Francisco
461 Second Street, Loft c127
San Francisco, CA 94107

Telephone: 415-896-6700

Our San Francisco office is in the Clocktower Building on the corner of Second and Bryant Streets in SOMA.

To gain entry, please call #127 from the front gate telephone. If you call from a cell phone, we cannot buzz the gate release!

Once inside, make the first left and the first right. Our office is behind the large glass doors. 

The parking in front of the building is metered and has street-cleaning restrictions. Please read all signs and meters closely. There are several paid parking lots nearby. The office is very close to AT&T Park: You might consider checking the San Francisco Giants schedule to see if there's a home game before you drive to the area. There are many convenient options for public transit.

We are convenient to the 10 Townsend Muni Bus, the KT Muni Line at 2nd and King, the Montgomery BART Station, and the CalTrain Station at 4th and King.

DBA Oakland is about to get a major facelift. This rendering shows it in its future glory.
