Model Residence Now Open for Socially Distanced In-Person or Virtual Tours

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. – Prominent San Francisco developer, DM Development, announced today that it has completed construction and has welcomed the first residents at Union House, a $120M luxury condominium community located at the nexus of San Francisco’s most coveted neighborhoods including Pacific Heights, Russian Hill, Cow Hollow and the Marina.

Already nearing 30% sold, Union House offers a limited collection of 41 distinctive residences featuring one-, two- and three-bedroom floorplans along with multi-level townhouses and penthouses with private rooftop terraces. Ranging from 955 to 2,437-square-feet, each home is meticulously refined and timelessly crafted with high ceilings, European wide-plank oak flooring throughout and oversized, seven-foot, picture-frame windows that offer an abundance of natural light and extraordinary views of iconic local landmarks including the Golden Gate Bridge, the San Francisco Bay and the city skyline. Current prices start from $1.5 million for a one bedroom, $2.3 million for a two bedroom and $5.5 million for a three bedroom. A model residence is also now available for private tours.  

In May, Union House set a San Francisco real estate record for highest price-per-square-foot achieved in 2020 when it sold a penthouse residence at $3,015 per-square-foot.

“As the largest new development in this area in 20 years, we really wanted to push the boundaries and deliver a one-of-a-kind condominium community that captures the elegance and grandeur of Pacific Heights and Russian Hill,” said Mark MacDonald, co-founding principal of DM Development. “What sets Union House apart is its rare location. Being at the nexus of four of the most desirable neighborhoods in San Francisco, residents will have direct access to luxury shopping, the San Francisco waterfront, iconic views and some of the best neighborhood parks in the city. For me, Union House is one of those rare, legacy opportunities in a developer’s career, and we look forward to showcasing everything it has to offer.”

Thoughtfully conceived and contextually crafted from the outside in, Union House was designed by award-winning Handel Architects to masterfully blend the warm tones, textures, and details from the neighborhood with a complementary palette of clean, contemporary lines and refined materiality. The exterior façade gracefully juxtaposes poured-stone panels with brushed bronze, while the signature, oversized picture-frame windows add a stately yet metropolitan quality to the architecture. A striking canopy hovers over a glowing jewel-box entryway that is inspired by renowned, luxury boutiques and echoes a warm sense of hospitality while the double-height exterior windows provide an alluring glimpse into the building’s sumptuous lobby within.

On the inside, each expansive residence at Union House marries classic details, modern styling and finishes of the finest quality. At the heart of the home, Union House kitchens feature spacious, dark-oak cabinetry with unique frame-and-panel doors; cabinet-pulls and concealed hoods finished in an elegant, metallic bronze; touch-to-open drawers and cabinets with self-closing hinges; and grand, custom Italian Calacatta Marble countertops and Waterworks Easton Classic fixtures. Each master bathroom is clad in a sumptuous palette of light Italian Carrera marble with contrasting borders; a freestanding tub by Victoria & Albert; handmade, custom white lacquer vanities; and modern Waterworks fixtures in polished nickel. Select residences feature elegant, private terraces with oversized, bronze-framed entry doors that lead to golden sunlight, serene greenery and wide-open views.

At Union House, comfort, design, and privacy are the truest expression of luxury, which is why DM Development and Handel put an extensive focus on offering carefully curated amenities and bespoke services. Upon arrival, residents are greeted by a soaring, double-height attended lobby with exquisite finishes, complemented by an intimate, seated parlor with a custom-marble fireplace. The Sky Lounge, perched atop the seventh story of Union House, is the crown jewel, featuring an outdoor fire table, chic lounge seating, an outdoor grill and dining spaces and breathtaking views of the Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco Bay, Russian Hill and beyond. Services include an on-site carshare service and an art concierge program that allows residents to work with a skilled local curator to find the perfect works of art to complement their home.

At Union House, residents will be connected to only the best of what the city has to offer. Located just steps away from world-class dining, renowned wellness and fitness studios, high-end shopping and quintessential nearby parks including Alta Plaza, Lafayette Park, Crissy Field, the Presidio and the waterfront, Union House puts the neighborhood’s vibrant cultural convergence at the forefront of the resident experience.

Prospective buyers now have the opportunity to arrange private tours of the building and the recently completed two-bedroom model residence via socially distanced, in-person appointments or virtually. The Union House Sales Gallery is located at 1515 Union Street in San Francisco and appointments can be scheduled by visiting site or by calling 415-351-1510. San Francisco-based Polaris Pacific, the leading real estate sales and marketing group for new residential communities, is handling the sales and marketing for the building.
