Landmark 58
San Francisco Gaslight Company
3640 Buchanan Street Between Bay and North Point
Marina District
Built 1893

This Romanesque Revival building is the only surviving industrial building in the neighborhood.

It was designed by Joseph B. Crockett, president of the San Francisco Gaslight Company which made gas for heating and lighting from coal and petroleum delivered to its nearby wharf. (Source: An Architectural Guidebook to San Francisco and the Bay Area by Susan Dinkelspiel Cerny.)

Pacific Gas & Electric closed the plant in the 1950's, and today it houses offices.
