Will “Ferry Building Gray” Be The Next Color Trend?


The first section of the Ferry Building has been unveiled, and we can now see the new custom color created specifically for the building, as reported recently by The San Francisco Business Times.

You may have noticed that they’ve been working on the Ferry Building, as it’s going through a two-year restoration project. Hudson Pacific Properties, which owns the Ferry Building, developed the new exterior color with Sherman-Williams and the Port of San Francisco, reports the Business Times. The new color is Ferry Building Gray, and it aims to be closer to the Colusa sandstone that covered the building when it debuted in 1898 (see photo above, by Douglas Fruehling for the Business Times).

Will homeowners looking for a bespoke, authentic San Francisco color try out Ferry Building Gray? Sherwin-Williams has custom blended the color and it’s available for a limited time exclusively at Sherman-Williams Commercial Paint Store at 320 4th Street in San Francisco. I could see this color showing well on stucco buildings, and some developers may pick up on it for future condo complexes.
