One Montgomery Tower
One Montgomery Tower, part of the Post Montgomery Center complex, is a 38-story office building connected to the Crocker Galleria mall.
This location is a couple of blocks away from our previous location at 149 New Montgomery Street, is LEED certified, and allowed us to reduce our square footage while meeting our office space priorities for collaboration.
One Montgomery Tower is located at the northeast corner of Post and Kearny Streets in the financial district of San Francisco, California. Its main entrance is on Kearny Street.
Parking is available at numerous private parking garages in the Financial District. There is very limited street parking near One Montgomery Tower.

One Montgomery Tower is the fourth location which the Wikimedia Foundation has utilized for its headquarters, and the third in San Francisco.
St. Petersburg, Florida
From the Wikimedia Foundation's founding in 2003 until 2007, the Wikimedia Foundation was located in St. Petersburg in Florida within the United States. The headquarters in Florida was closed on 31 January 2008.

In 2007, the Wikimedia Foundation decided to move from its Florida office. San Francisco was chosen as the destination and the move was completed by the end of January 2008.

In 2009, the Wikimedia Foundation moved approximately half a mile (under a kilometer) to 149 New Montgomery Street, and eventually occupied three floors of the building until October 2017.
