Celebrated Interior Designer Ken Fulk’s Design Concept for Luxury Residential Tower in the Heart of the New City Center
San Francisco – February 18, 2016 – Maximus Real Estate Partners today released an exclusive first look at design renderings for The Harrison, the highly anticipated 298-unit luxury residential tower launching in San Francisco’s Rincon Hill. The Mark Company has been selected for the sales and marketing of the apartments, to begin in early 2016.
The Harrison will be one of the most significant and distinct residential offerings in San Francisco. It features the world-class design concept of celebrated interior designer Ken Fulk, The Harrison’s Creative Director, who has designed the building’s entire concept including the residences, the common areas and amenities for the luxury tower.
Fulk is San Francisco’s most influential interior designer, responsible for The Battery, San Francisco’s exclusive private club in the Financial District that reflects Silicon Valley’s progressive thought, diversity and intelligence. For over 20 years, Fulk has been a major player on the San Francisco design scene, renovating Nob Hill’s landmark Mark Hopkins Hotel, and has been a leading designer of experiences big and small, curating his clients’ lifestyles and styling not only their homes right down to their custom stationery, but also their wardrobes, weddings, dinner parties and family vacations. The Harrison is Fulk’s first design of a for-sale property.
The Harrison represents the culmination of an offering that can never be duplicated. Rising 48 stories on the top of the city, The Harrison’s panoramic views include the dramatic sweep of the bay to the expansive perspective of the urban landscape on all sides. Due to the elevation of the hill, The Harrison has sprawling vistas from even the lower floors. For homebuyers, they will be able to choose the residence that faces their preferred panoramic vista of San Francisco and its surrounding natural beauty.
“I’m a storyteller. I wanted the spaces to feel as if they had evolved overtime: engaging and fresh, yet also familiar,” said Fulk. “Too often communal design feels anonymous as if you must strive to please everyone–which in the ends comes across as soulless, like you could be anywhere. San Francisco is anything but anonymous. It’s this rich historical point of view that leaves an indelible impression on any visitor. All great cities and all great spaces have a point view that resonates–and remains with us long after we depart, beckoning us to return. Our homes should have the same attraction.”
The Harrison represents the very best of urban cultural life. The redesigned Sky Lounge will be perhaps the most remarkable spot in all of San Francisco, for residents of The Harrison. It is intended to be an exclusive gathering spot to share in and experience the city’s great assets and wonderful vistas, while enjoying the company of world-renowned chefs, remarkable wine, art and entertainment.
“The premier location in Rincon Hill as well as the property’s appeal to the sophisticated, urban buyer drawn by the walkable lifestyle, ensure that The Harrison will be a destination for residents throughout the region,” said Alan Mark, President of The Mark Company. “Maximus’ commitment to delivering a distinct market leading opportunity, exemplified by its receiving the prestigious American Institute of Architects Honor Award for Urban Design in 2013, combined with the brand distinction and highly-appointed design features of Ken Fulk, will prominently position The Harrison in the marketplace.”
