As the city struggles to build affordable housing, there’s no stopping the abundance of luxury condos sprouting up all over the city. The newest one under construction, One Steuart Lane, flanked by Gap and Google offices along the Embarcadero, will change the neighborhood, for better or for worse, once it opens in early 2021.
What once was a parking garage will soon turn into a 20-story, residential high-rise with views of the bay and the Bay Bridge. The 120-condominium tower, designed by architects at Skidmore, Owing, and Merrill (SOM), will come with a sun terrace, a 24-hour valet, and a private fitness center and spa.
Units will range from three- to one-bedroom floor plans starting at approximately $1.6 million. The condos will come with color palettes “inspired by San Francisco’s astounding skyline,” according to building’s public relations spokesperson. Kitchens will come with white marble island and marble kitchen counters and backsplash. Bathrooms will feature free-standing marble tubs. And custom cabinetry will grace the rest of the space. The building will also offer a 4,500-square-foot retail space at ground level.
No below-market-rate units will be available.
One Steuart Lane joins other budding luxe towers, like the twisty Mira (still under construction) and Lumina, which have turned the city’s northeastern tip into a tony neighborhood.
