459 Geary Project Featured in Innovative Design Quarterly

FME’s Greg Sheppard and his talented team, including Mackenzie Bray, Brad Reinschell and Derek Cunha, were featured in the recent edition of Innovative Design Quarterly for their transformational design of the building at 459 Geary.

While today’s Tenderloin is a burgeoning arts district, “the neighborhood is largely conventional, commercial galleries on a single floor,” Sheppard says. With 459 Geary, “we’ve challenged the norm. It’s a unique offering for the community arts scene, not only because of the gallery’s ability to exhibit urban art and large-format work in a variety of settings; but also because we’ve transformed another dilapidated, underutilized building into a multi-purpose amenity that further enlivens the street and the neighborhood at large.”
