901 Rankin Street in San Francisco – Architect’s rendering

The San Francisco Wholesale Produce Market was built in the early 1960s as part of a redevelopment effort in the Bayview. The merchants at that time were moved from what is now the area near the Embarcadero Center, where they had been operating since the 1870s.

The City assisted with obtaining financing for the project, which was fully repaid from merchant rent. The Wholesale Produce Market has operated as a City-controlled entity operated jointly by the San Francisco Market Corporation and the San Francisco Produce Association, with oversight by the City Controller and the Real Estate Department.

The Produce Market is undergoing a new three-phase development plan.  As a result, the Market will expand from 300,000 to almost 500,000 square feet.

The first new building is 901 Rankin.  RFJ Meiswinkel did the framing for the load bearing walls on the north end.  The company was also responsible for the soffit framing, sky light framing, roof framing and the interior framing accompanied by gypboard installation and the interior finish.
