After years of “temporarily” working in Marin County, Duncan/Channon has now occupied its beautiful new top-floor offices at 114 Sansome Street in downtown San Francisco. D/C’s world headquarters encompasses the entire 14th floor of the Roaring Twenties -era Adam Grant Building, as well as a smaller 15th floor penthouse, accessible by private elevator, that is being converted (god help us) into “The Tip,” a fully operational lounge, complete with wet bar, wine cellar and rooftop cigar salon.
The agency plans to celebrate the grand opening of The Tip, as well as the epochal move to San Francisco, at a sedate and dignified D/C soiree on Friday, March 28, from 5 to ???
By the way, opening day at the new space, March 3, saw the return of the D/C bunny, first sighted skateboarding through the agency’s Bad Decisions holiday party in November. Other than that, the transition has been exceedingly smooth — well, except for phone numbers not getting transferred, the building manager questioning the movers’ insurance and the ultra-cool, custom-built, orange and white Steelcase reception desk not showing up.
