The plot of land on the edge of Hayes Valley that was formerly known as Parcel H is finally nearing its debut as 34 new condos under the name 400 Grove. The land was once part of the Central Freeway, but after the roadway was torn down in 1992, the parcel was put aside for residential development. DDG and DM Development—the team behind nearby 8 Octavia—worked with Fougeron Architecture to build a structure that is focused around a central courtyard filled with bamboo and designed by Fougeron and Marta Fry Landscape Associates. Each residence has windows covered by rain screens made of sustainably sourced redwood that together make up the most notable feature of the facade.
400 Grove is made up mostly of two-bedrooms, and pricing for those units will start in the low $1 million range. There's also a smattering of one-bedrooms, with prices starting in the low $700,000s, and junior-one bedrooms that begin in the mid-$500,000s. Four units are below market rate, and will range from $172,304 for the smallest units to $346,697 for a two-bedroom, according to figures from the Mayor's Office of Housing.
Some condos have private terraces, while all have oak flooring and SieMatic kitchens. The rooftop terrace offers views of surrounding Hayes Valley. One of the reasons that 400 Grove was designated as housing is its access to public transportation, but there are also 17 on-site parking spots, which will be available to some units.
