The historic, ornate Hibernia Bank building has been sitting empty for 15 years, and for nearly half of that time it was under major renovation. While it was closed, the Dolmen Group owners have dealt with issues ranging from graffiti to historic preservation hearings. But now the bank is finally ready to look for new office, retail, or event tenants, according to KTVU, which toured the 1892 Beaux Arts building this week.
There are 40,000 square feet up for grabs, and this isn't your average office space. KTVU notes that Hibernia's historic interior sets it apart from other downtown buildings and that the marble floors, teller counter, and Tiffany-style stained glass skylights remain intact. There are mahogany- and walnut-paneled executive offices with chandeliers and an industrial lower level with exposed ceiling and brick. Several prospective tenants have already viewed the space.
