Embarcadero YMCA, San Francisco

Client: YMCA of San Francisco

Completed; 2018


The Embarcadero YMCA, also known as the Army and Navy YMCA, is a 10-story structure clad in clay brick masonry and terra cotta, and completed in 1924. At the time of MCA’s involvement in the project, part of the building was leased out to LaSalle Hotel Properties, which operated the Harbor Court Hotel.


MCA prepared a property conditions assessment, which was performed in 2013. Later that year, at the YMCA’s request, MCA provided additional surveys, Construction Documents, and Construction Administration services to address the recommended repairs.
