50 Fremont Center (also known as Salesforce West) is a 43-story, 183 m (600 ft) high-rise office building completed in 1985 at Fremont and Mission Streets on the boundary of the financial district and South of Market Area (SOMA) of San Francisco, California.
50 Fremont Street was developed and owned by Fremont Properties who sold the building in 2000, which was later purchased by Hines, who in turn sold the property to TIAA-CREF in late 2004. Hines Interests Limited Partnership provided property management for this building until February 12, 2015. The building's design, by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, includes stepped-back vertical bays at each corner, rising to a building crown that evokes the design of historic Art Deco skyscrapers.
In January 2012, Salesforce.com announced that it signed an 18-year lease to occupy 400,000 square feet (37,000 m2) for US$339 million. In November 2014, Salesforce agreed to purchase the tower from TIAA-CREF.
On February 12, 2015, Salesforce purchased the 50 Fremont office building for $637.8 million from TIAA-CREF, according to public records. Salesforce rebranded the property as Salesforce West at 50 Fremont Street, part of their urban campus plan that includes Salesforce East at 350 Mission Street and Salesforce Tower at 415 Mission Street. Salesforce West is currently managed by Cushman & Wakefield.
