Climbing to New Heights: SF’s Top 10 Luxury Residential High-Rises
If anything is red haute in San Francisco right now, it’s the real estate market, and Luxury high-rises are popping up all over. Here, in alphabetical order, are the city’s most spectacular new luxury condominium and apartment buildings and the ace developers who are building them. Every one of them makes high design, industry-leading amenities, and advanced safety and security systems their top priorities. Several developers have also built or are building nearby affordable housing as part of their deal to win the city’s approval.
Two development industry veterans, Gregg Nelson and Michael Maples, founded Trumark Urban in 2008 in the belief that it’s the real estate developer’s duty to not only create buildings but also to enhance the community surrounding them. They plan to do just that at The Pacific, an ultra-luxe collection of 76 condominium residences spread across a tower, penthouses, and three-level townhouses in ultra-chic Pacific Heights. Every residence has a formal living room, a chef’s kitchen, fine finishes, generous square footage, soaring ceilings, and floor-to-ceiling windows. Trumark’s team worked with world-renowned Handel Architects to create a nine-story tower that has spectacular views of the Golden Gate Bridge, Mt. Tamalpais, and the Pacific Ocean. “The Pacific offers a full range of amenities that are essential to the lifestyle associated with the iconic area’s discerning dwellers, including private-vehicle valet, full-service concierge, lobby attendant, a private Observatory Lounge overlooking the Bay and Golden Gate Bridge, a private guest suite, and a world-class fitness center,” Arden Hearing, managing director of Trumark Urban explained to Haute Living. Intimate art installations, access to individual private gardens and terraces, and custom-designed rooms by decorator Jay Jeffers are more perks of life at The Pacific.
