With demolition already underway at 201 Folsom, the latest luxury condo project to grace the South of Market finally went public with its details and sexy new name. Make way for "Lumina"—the product of substantial Chinese investment from China Vanke Co. in partnership with Tishman Speyer—which will help fill out the Transbay skyline with two towers (350 ft and 400 ft) and two mid-rise buildings, housing 655 condos that range from studio to 3-BR, average 1275 square feet, and include at least 1 parking spot (and 24/7 valet) per unit. Two commercial spaces will anchor the ground floor with 9,500 square feet on Folsom Street for a restaurant or "upscale market" and a 1,000 sf corner spot at Folsom and Beale Streets. The amenities are on par with the best of the best so—even though the sales center doesn't open until next summer—you may want to get in line now.
