An interpretive marker on the building reads:
San Francisco Historical Landmark
The Oriental Warehouse
Built in 1867, the Oriental Warehouse is all that remains in San Francisco of the Pacific Mail Steamship Co., a firm that was the first to establish regular mail, passenger and trade service between the U.S. and the Orient. The building played a central role as the primary storage and distribution point for imports of tea, rice and silk from Asia and was designated a landmark by the city of San Francisco in 1977.
The warehouse was converted into 66 residential lofts in 1996.
