The contemporary design is lined with five-bay windows and ten balconies in the front and eight balconies in the back. Clad with cement and metal panels, with floor-to-ceiling windows.
The 65-foot structure would have yielded 69,210 square feet, with 42,140 square feet dedicated to residential use, 1,590 square feet for ground-floor retail, and 7,580 square feet for a 14-car garage. Planning documents indicate the residences will be sold for ownership.
The property is in a retail and public amenity-rich area. Polk Street, a major commercial thoroughfare, is just one block away. The property is beside the Van Ness and Union Street bus stop, serviced by the 30, 45, 49, 70, 90, 101, and the Downtown.
