SAN FRANCISCO, CA-Huntsman Architectural Group has signed on for nearly 19,000 sf at 50 California, a Shorenstein-owned office building in downtown San Francisco. It will relocate from the Merchants Exchange building at 465 California, where it has leased space for more than 10 years.

Neither Huntsman nor Shorenstein would divulge the specifics of the deal. The new lease is one of the few whole-floor deals signed in recent months in San Francisco.

Huntsman AG is scheduled to take over the space in October 2001. The new headquarters will provide larger office and conference room facilities, more room for technical support areas, plus additional space for future growth, as well as a new communications infrastructure.

Sources at Huntsman tell the company tried to maintain their location, but the number of employees coupled with the need to be on a single floor led the company to its new location at 50 California St. Rob Appleton of Grubb & Ellis brokered the deal for Huntsman. Karen Bloch and Karl Baldauf represented Shorenstein.
