Foundry Wharf is home to a vibrant community of entrepreneurs,artisans and business leaders from a broad mix of industries.
Over fifty tenants enjoy creative, modern, riverfront workspace within Petaluma’s historic Downtown Warehouse District.


Real estate developer Walter Haake purchased the property in 1987 after discovering it while rowing up the Petaluma River. He transformed the old Corliss Engine Works facility into a combination of creative office and artisanal warehouse spaces with a unique community vibe appealing to today’s creative work teams. The rejuvenation of Foundry Wharf has driven a renaissance in this once industrial and gritty, waterfront neighborhood. Today you will find modern residential dwellings, corner cafes, and an overall vibrant scene. Foundry Wharf is owned and actively managed by the Haake family, who also make Petaluma their home.


Located within Petaluma’s historic Downtown Warehouse District, and on the banks of the Petaluma River,  Foundry Wharf is within walking distance to a wide array of restaurants, delis and cafes, gyms and yoga studios, walking and bike trails, and many public transit options, including the new SMART train.

Downtown Petaluma is centrally located at the heart of the North Bay accessible by commute from Sonoma, Marin, Napa, Contra Costa and San Francisco counties. The SMART train is projected to commence service in 2016 and will ultimately connect Downtown Petaluma to 14 stations between Cloverdale and the ferry terminal at Larkspur Landing.


Office floor plans encourage collaboration with modern workflows that foster a culture of innovation. Sustainably designed interiors use architectural features salvaged from the property’s industrial origins for unique offices that appeal to today’s progressive companies and their employees. High ceilings, exposed timber, concrete floors and operable windows maximize natural light and air. Flexible workspaces range from 250 to 21,000 square feet for teams of all sizes.


Foundry Wharf sits on the scenic banks of the Petaluma River, across from a tranquil expanse of open space with views of the Sonoma Mountains. Pathways and seating areas around the property foster interaction and social gatherings. Step outside to meet with co-workers, make a personal call, or just grab a few quiet minutes in the sunshine to observe the migratory birds and recreational activities along the river.
