Construction is finishing up on Coterie Cathedral Hill, a luxury senior housing development at 1001 Van Ness Avenue in San Francisco’s small Cathedral Hill neighborhood. The project adds 209 new units to the poorly supplied market of high-end senior housing. Coterie Cathedral Hill will be just the second project for the new Coterie Brand, a collaboration between Related Companies and Atria Senior Living.
Once topped out, the 146-foot tall structure will create 270,000 square feet, adding 209 assisted living units ranging from studios to two-bedrooms, as well as eleven townhouses built along Myrtle Street. The main entrance for the apartments is set back from Myrtle street, allowing for a landscaped plaza with seating for guests and residents. Parking will be included for 47 vehicles on-site.
The building will feature a variety of amenities and services aiming to make the high prices well worth the cost. There will be a private health care facility on-site with treatment and diagnostic capabilities. Leisure amenities will include the fitness center, a movie theater, a yoga studio, heated pools, rooftop gardens, and salons. Other services will include classes, diet planning, and arranging vehicle rides across the city.
A landscaped plaza will be included beside the main entrance, set back from the street to provide an oasis bridging guests from the bustling Van Ness Avenue into the main lobby. 7,000 square feet of ground-floor retail will be opened up facing Van Ness. More new trees, decorative pavers, concrete seat-wall elements, and upgraded lighting will be included along Myrtle Street.
Handel Architects is responsible for the design. The facade will feature a collage of material choices ranging from curtain-wall and gold hues, white fiber cement panels, and brick for the townhouses along Myrtle Street. The townhomes will be called the Myrtle Flats.
1001 Van Ness has replaced the former KRON4 News Headquarters. The news building sold in 2014 for $26.4 million to Oryx Partners, who later sold the property for Related and Atria to build. Residents will also be across from the future new Bus Rapid Transit stop, part of the extensive $300 million transit infrastructure establishing a higher capacity artery moving north-south.
Coterie Cathedral Hill is expected to welcome its first residents in March 2022.
Units will reportedly rent between $16-27,000 per month or nearly a third of a million dollars per year. The Sales Gallery for 1001 Van Ness is now open. For more information, see here.
The next Coterie will be opening up in New York City. Those following New York City development will undoubtedly be aware of the Hudson Yards development, the new super-tall neighborhood developed by Related Companies across 28 acres over an active railyard. Among the 16 structures in the $25 billion development project is 451 Tenth Avenue, including senior housing, market-rate units, and an Equinox fitness center.
