Klamath Recognized at Real Estate Deal of the Year Awards
It was a wild idea and an even wilder project: Take an aging ferry boat with a leaky hull and dreary interior and transform it into a bright, stunning and iconic headquarters and events space. But that’s exactly what the Bay Area Council did with the historic Klamath behind the vision and leadership of Chief Operating Officer John Grubb. And this week, the San Francisco Business Times recognized the Klamath as the Best Creative Project in its annual Real Estate Deals of the Year Awards on Thursday (March 30).
Moored at Pier 9 along San Francisco’s waterfront, the Klamath serves as a symbol of the Bay Area’s resilience, a convening point for top leaders working to address the region’s biggest challenges and a powerful connection between our past and future. In addition to hosting the Council’s many policy and other meetings, the Klamath offers incredible spaces and rooms for rent for a wide range of corporate and other public and private events and meetings. Our thanks to SF Business Times Publisher Mary Huss, who served as Chair of the Council when we purchased the Klamath and provided unswerving leadership in realizing the vessel’s transformation.
