To usher in and nurture the future generation of musical talent while further establishing their identity and presence amongst the nation’s elite music education programs, the San Francisco Conservatory of Music is expanding their facilities with a state-of-the-art education, performance, and student housing tower in the heart of the Civic Center district of San Francisco.   The building will be located at Hayes & Van Ness Avenue, directly across from Davies Symphony Hall and steps from the SF Opera and City Hall.  In addition to the educational and residential components, the building will house three recital halls that offer free concerts to the public.  Most significantly, a 180-seat glass enclosed recital hall will crown the building at the upper levels providing dramatic views of the city skyline and the famous SF City Hall dome to the north

ECB is the development manager for the iconic 120-foot tall tower  education, performance and student housing tower at the heart of the Civic Center in San Francisco.  The building will provide 25,000 sf dedicated to music education, 15,000 square feet of public lobby & recital hall spaces , 100,000 sf of student housing  consisting of 400 student beds in 117 suite-style units, and 28 market rate housing units.  ECB is managing the entire design and approval process and will serve as project manager through construction on behalf of the San Francisco Conservatory of Music.
