181 Fremont is bringing luxury living in San Francisco to a new height with its collection of 55 luxury SOMA condos atop the city's tallest MIXED-USE tower. The building, which has been carefully designed to withstand even the strongest earthquakes, is as beautiful as it is tough. The crown jewel will be its 7,000-square-foot penthouse, a home that is difficult to describe without using superlatives: when it is move-in ready in early 2018, it will be San Francisco's highest and most expensive residence, providing its lucky owner with unbeatable views of the city and the bay from above the clouds.
Benchmarks like LEED certification indicate how eco-conscious a particular building is, but there are some extraordinary developments that go above and beyond the minimum requirements for healthy living spaces and workplaces. Jay Paul Company's new project, 181 Fremont, is, at 800 feet, the tallest mixed-use building on the West Coast. The luxury tower's water recycling program captures and treats graywater and rainwater for reuse. It's also well-protected from natural disasters: thanks to 260 feet of bedrock, 181 Fremont is prepared to withstand a 475-year seismic event. An Electronically Activated Streamer Emission on the roof diffuses bolts of lightning, and the building even has emergency evacuation elevators. Designed by Heller Manus Architects, 181 Fremont is also the first San Francisco building to be precertified as LEED Platinum.
There's now a $42M "room with a view" in San Francisco, as the penthouse atop 181 Fremont takes shape and is poised to break records. The last luxury condo for sale in San Francisco to sell for a record list price was a $32 million property in 2015. The 181 Fremont penthouse will likely find a buyer in the venture capital and finance or tech worlds, according to Alan Mark of The Mark Company, the selling agent for the building. The 7000-square-foot home has five bedrooms, five bathrooms, and two powder rooms, as well as luxurious design touches like the custom-made brass door handles from Paris and a front door crafted from wood imported from New Guinea. The building also offers an array of fantastic amenities, but the residence's ultimate deluxe feature is probably its spectacular panoramic views, framed by floor-to-ceiling windows, of San Francisco's landmarks and iconic skyline.
The penthouse that is now available for purchase at 181 Fremont Residences is guaranteed to please its future owners. The five-bedroom, 6,900-square-foot luxury condo occupies the entire top floor of the SoMa tower and makes full use of its incredible vantage via floor-to-ceiling windows that give breathtaking 360-degree views of the bay and city. Meanwhile, its Orlando Diaz-Azcuy-designed interior is resplendent with Italian marble, bespoke Diaz-Azcuy fixtures, and rare hardwoods. From the translucent fireplace in the family room to the Paldao wood entry door with custom brass handle by Série Rare and the paired gourmet and service kitchens, the penthouse rests comfortably at the apex of San Francisco's most coveted luxury condos.
700 feet above San Francisco, a jaw-dropping new penthouse is taking shape, and its views are as incredible as its price tag: if it sells at or near its asking price of $42 million, it will break real estate records in the city. The crown jewel of the new mixed-use luxury development 181 Fremont in the burgeoning SoMA financial district, the penthouse features interiors by renowned designer Orlando Diaz-Azcuy and panoramic 360-degree views of the city. Landmarks, including the Golden Gate and Bay Bridges, Sausalito, the Transamerica Pyramid, and Treasure Island, are visible through the apartment's floor-to-ceiling windows. The penthouse occupies the entire 70th floor of 181 Fremont, spanning nearly 7,000 square feet, with 5 bedrooms, 5 full bathrooms, and 2 powder rooms. Among its many thoughtful architectural details, it has a private lobby entrance and a den with a full wet bar and wine tower. Residents of all the luxury condos at 181 Fremont will also enjoy access to the building's Sky Lounge on the 52nd floor, which has entertaining space and an impressive wraparound terrace. According to Matt Lituchy, CIO of the Jay Paul Company, the developer of 181 Fremont, the penthouse will be the tallest residence on the west coast when it's completed in 2018: "The buyer of this home will live at heights never before experienced in San Francisco with unparalleled views, extraordinary design, and superb amenities on top of the most resilient and seismically sound structure around."
