SERA Architects and Beam Development have received initial Design Advice from the Historic Landmarks Commission for renovations of the Mason Erhman Building Annex, also known as the Zellerbach Paper Company Building. The project will convert the existing storage building into office space, with the potential for ground floor retail. Many of the improvements required to make it a viable commercial space will not be visible from the street, and will include adding thermal insulation at the inside face of the exterior walls and above the roof as well as installing a new HVAC system.
