Sales slated to begin in Fall 2017 on 69-unit building

San Francisco, Calif. (April 21, 2017) – San Francisco real estate developer DM Development announces the newest addition to its growing, design-driven portfolio of projects, 815 Tennessee. The 5-story, 69-unit building will be open for sales in the Fall of this year and will be completed in early 2018. The project, which is located one block from the bustling Third Street corridor in Dogpatch will offer one, two and three bedroom units, a 4,500-square foot roof deck, ample parking, bike repair and storage areas, and a staffed lobby with a feature custom lit art wall.

“The Dogpatch is a historically vibrant community within San Francisco with an inviting climate, beautiful parks, thriving retail and art venues, and convenient transit options,” said DM Development founder Mark MacDonald. “We’re excited to bring quality, design-driven developments to neighborhoods like Dogpatch that are highly desirable places to live but currently lack new housing inventory. Not only will these homes bring new families to this neighborhood, but local business will be enriched by the increase in local residents.”

DM Development is building 815 Tennessee with financial partners Grosvenor Americas and First Republic Bank and marketing partner The Mark Company. The building architect is BDE Architects and the interiors are being designed by Edmonds & Lee, both of which are leading San Francisco design firms.

815 Tennessee is located one block from the Muni T line, Caltrain and the I-280 for easy access to downtown San Francisco, Silicon Valley, or other destinations within the Bay Area. The building is just two blocks from the popular Esprit Park, and close to the Third Street corridor, which was recently improved with bikes lanes and offers locally owned restaurants, bakeries, retail shops and art galleries.

“We are very pleased to be working with DM Development again as they share our commitment to bringing beautiful, thoughtful design to dynamic neighborhoods,” said Alan Mark, President of The Mark Company. “Dogpatch is one of the last authentic neighborhoods in San Francisco and virtually no new condominiums have been built here in over 10 years. Following their enormously successful projects in Hayes Valley, 815 Tennessee will be another jewel in DM’s impressive portfolio.”

In a nod to the origins of the Dogpatch neighborhood, a historic façade has been incorporated into the design of the building, which bridges old and new with a mix of wood and steel and contemporary lines.

Residences at 815 Tennessee are expected to start in the $700,000s. For more information and to receive early sales updates, please visit

815 Tennessee is one of seven active DM Development projects in Dogpatch, Hayes Valley, the Marina and West Hollywood, which comprise over 506,000 square feet of development and 285 residential units valued at $474 million.
