Document Description
The U.S. Old Mint: The proposed project is the rehabilitation plus seismic upgrade and addition to the United States Old Mint located at 88 Fifth Street in downtown San Francisco. The approximately 86,300-gross SF building is proposed for use as a City History Museum with secondary uses being retail and office uses. Additional square footage and an additional story would be added within the interior courtyard with a glass roof over the courtyard, at about 10,000 gsf. The glass roof would be about one story higher than the existing parapets in the courtyard, increasing the total height of the building center from approximately 60 feet to approximately 75 feet. The project would include closure of Jessie Street to vehicles, between Mint and Fifth Streets, to be used for outdoor restaurant seating.
