400-488 Folsom, one of the last skyscraper parcels in San Francisco, will be developed into residential space in the Transbay District, San Francisco’s newest neighborhood. The 500 ft residential tower was designed by starchitect Rem Koolhaas, who was also the principal architect of the notable CCTV Headquarters in Beijing China.
Two mid-rise 85-foot podium buildings has also been proposed and will be designed by Fougeron Architecture.
The Avery SF at 488 Folsom
Its luxury highrise condo residences, recently released as The Avery SF, will start on the 33rd floor of the 55-story tower. The condos’ interiors will be designed by renowned Clodagh Design, based in New York, New York. Together, the three buildings will create 548 residential units: 118 luxury condos, 280 luxury apartments and 150 affordable apartments. This residential project has differing completion dates depending on the source, but it is expected to be completed between August 2018 and 2020.
The Views from The Avery SF
This 55-story tower will have views from its highrise residences on the topmost floors. Renderings are not available yet, but expect views of Downtown San Francisco’s city lights, the Bay Bridge and the San Francisco Bay.
The Future of Convenience at 400 Folsom
What’s cool about the general Transbay area is that an entirely new neighborhood was planned in an existing space, which was conceptualized by the city about 10 years ago. 400 Folsom is in the heart of this new district that is transforming from a former industrial area into a futuristic neighborhood. The building will be 2 blocks away from the Transbay Transit Center and 3 blocks away from the Salesforce Tower. There will be rooftop parks with event space and public corridors intertwined between upper and lower levels. As part of the plan, there will also be neighborhood amenities such as cafés, restaurants and groceries on ground levels dotted with public art installations. This is all within walking distance to Downtown San Francisco and the Financial District, while still being directly accessible to public transportation options headed toward the east bay and the peninsula. 400 Folsom is all about a new lifestyle of luxury and convenience. Across the street from 400 Folsom is The Metropolitan.
