historic (circa 1932) Georgian Revival-style former dormitory was built to
house 60 nurses working in the adjacent hospital which treated ailing mariners
from around the world. The building has undergone a complete historic
rehabilitation using green techniques. About 80 percent of the historic
building fabric was reused – walls, windows, doors, bathroom fixtures, and even
the hardware inside the door handles. The U.S. Green Building Council has
awarded the building a LEED Gold certification, making it the first registered
historic building in San Francisco to be gold certified in the LEED-CS
category. Building 1808 is now home to a variety of commercial tenants.
for April 2014 occupancy, Suite B50 is a basement or “garden level” space which

conference room with kitchenette and a finished concrete floor. The suite has
lots of natural light and its own private entrance. Building tenants have
access to bicycle storage, a shower, and paid storage lockers.
parking is available near the building. 1808 Wedemeyer Street is a stop on the
PresidiGo Around the Park Shuttle which connects to the Downtown PresidiGo
shuttle route. Muni bus lines are within walking distance. The building is
conveniently located near Highway 1 and easy access to the Golden Gate Bridge.
Public Health Service District is located in the southern Presidio near the
14th and 15th Avenue Gates and the Lake/California/Clement Street corridor. Its
history dates from the 1870s when a marine hospital was built here to serve
international seaman. In 1932 the original wood-frame buildings were replaced
by a gracious 36-acre campus that included a main hospital, nurses’ quarters,
and support buildings.
the district hosts a lively mix of homes, workplaces, and cultural destinations
with the park’s wild southern hills as the backdrop. New trails connect it to
the rest of the park. The Public Health Service District is recognized as a
“green neighborhood” by the U.S. Green Building Council’s new Neighborhood
Development program (LEED ND). It may be the first LEED-ND neighborhood in the
country that is also part of a National Historic Landmark District.
