Constructed in 1892, The Hibernia Bank building at One Jones Street was abandoned and had not been an operating property since 1985, standing vacant for 30 years --except when the San Francisco Police Department (SFPD) occupied the basement of the building from 1991-2000 as a general neighborhood facility before moving to its new headquarters -- until acquired by Dolmen in 2008. The now-complete renovation includes a total seismic overhaul and preservation of the historic attributes of the previously dilapidated building.
Originally designed in 1892 by the innovative architect Albert Pissis, The Hibernia Bank is known for its exquisite architecture and rich history. Situated at the intersection of Jones, McAllister and Market Streets, The Hibernia Bank occupies 40,600 square feet in the middle of the Mid-Market tech hub that is home to tech leaders including Twitter, Uber, and Square. The property can accommodate office, retail, event, restaurant or other creative space over three floors, plus mezzanine and penthouse areas.
About The Hibernia Bank
Listed as San Francisco Historic Landmark #130, The Hibernia Bank is one of the few structures that continue to serve as a visible anchor for the City's storied Mid-Market neighborhood. Its historical features speak to the buildings unique Neoclassical Revival-style, including its grand corner entrance, giant exterior colonnade and famed domed entryway. The Hibernia Bank Building was one of the few buildings in the area to survive the 1906 Earthquake and Fire, owing to its "fireproof" granite construction, although the interior did suffer significant fire damage. Notably, the lore of The Hibernia Bank includes its founding in 1859 as The Hibernia Savings and Loan Society. It was acquired by Security Pacific in 1988. Security Pacific Bank was acquired by Bank of America in 1992. In 1974, a branch of this bank was robbed by the Symbionese Liberation Army and Patty Hearst.
