Burning Man to ignite Sixth and Market

Burning Man LLC is relocating its offices to the heart of the blighted mid-Market area.

Mayor Edwin Lee announced the move via his Twitter account this morning. Burning Man looked at several office spaces, including the Warfield Building, before deciding to relocate its offices to 995 Market Street. Curbed SF  is reporting that a lease for 19,000 square feet of office space in the David Hewes Building will be signed at any moment.

SF Toasted said the steel-frame 15-floor David Hewes Building was erected in 1906. The building was named after David Hewes who donated the golden spike used to complete the Transcontinental railroad in 1869.

"Burning Man embodies innovation and will lead to the creation of new jobs, a sense of community, and services to an underserved area," Lee said  in an interview with NBC Bay Area.
