The Bently Reserve is the former San Francisco Federal Reserve. Designed by architect George W. Kelham and completed in 1924, the building has been a prominent landmark of the Financial District for 89 years. Purchased by private developer Bently Holdings in 2005, the building was renovated to meet contemporary environmental standards, and is LEED Silver® Core and Shell. The upper floors are leased to several prominent San Francisco businesses, while the ground and mezzanine floors are used as a renowned conference center and special event space.
In 2009, the Energy Foundationʼs offices at the Bently Reserve were recognized with the first LEED Platinum® Commercial Interiors project in San Francisco. At the time they were one of only 13 offices worldwide to achieve this standard.
The lower floors of the Bently Reserve are rented for special events, business meetings, and conferences. These spaces represent one of San Franciscoʼs greenest special event venues, as well as some of the West Coastʼs most acclaimed spaces. The building is also included in the National Register of Historic Places, and is and one of San Franciscoʼs significant cultural landmarks.
