Each of the 120 residences evokes a sense of incomparable sophistication, boasting floor-to-ceiling glass and over nine foot ceiling heights, optimizing the colors that radiate off the water’s edge. Residences range from one- to three-bedrooms, spanning in size from approximately 900 to 3,000 square feet, as well as remarkably rare penthouses measuring up to 6,000 square feet. Blurring the delineation between indoor and outdoor living, select residences come complete with terraces including intricately landscaped living wall dividers. Setting a new standard in iconic California living, this exclusive collection of 12 terrace residences offer capitvating sliding glass panels expanding the living room, creating enchanting airy living spaces that lead to awe-inspiring balconies and expansive 40-foot wraparound terraces, a never-before-seen residential offering for the city of San Francisco. 

Meticously designed by the visionary minds of SOM, each residence features natural, high-quality materials and capitvating color palettes inspired by San Francisco’s astounding skyline. Each Dada custom kitchen by Molteni Group centers on a glorious white marble island complete with marble kitchen counters and backsplash. A premier collection of Gaggenau and Miele appliances compliments platinum matte Dornbracht fixtures and immaculate white oak flooring. The finery of the fits and finishes extends to the personal bathroom suites and powder rooms, completed by ultramodern, free-standing marble tubs, sleek Dornbracht platinum matte fixtures and Molteni Group Dada custom cabinetry. 

The new photorealistic images also highlight the thoughtfully curated collection of amenities and services replete with an all-encompassing residents’ lounge with full kitchen, dining and outdoor gathering spaces, a masterfully designed Embarcadero Arrival, valet service and a meticulously-appointed, staffed lobby offering 24-hour concierge services. In addition, the amenity program is complemented by a private fitness center, spa with water therapy showers and sauna, outdoor Jacuzzi surrounded by a sun terrace and an approximately 4,500-square-foot retail space. 

“Our aspiration at One Steuart Lane was to create a work of architecture worthy of its’ unparalleled location along San Francisco’s historic Embarcadero waterfront, once an industrial port and now the City’s 21st century civic edge,” said Craig W. Hartman, Senior Consulting Design Partner at SOM in San Francisco. “In response, we have designed a light-filled and intimately-scaled building with large windows and terraces that encourage a natural indoor and outdoor living, consistent with some of the world’s most-admired private residential homes. This sensibility extends beyond the residences throughout the public spaces at One Steuart Lane, and our collaboration with Rottet Studio on the interiors has resulted in a final vision that captures the elegant, understated and authentic beauty of the Bay.”  

The beauty of the façade’s Italian stone gives One Steuart Lane an outer appearance reminiscent of ancient Roman architecture while maximizing its iconic views from within the residences. In an effort to minimize its carbon footprint through conscious construction and architecture, the building’s minimally reflective, ultra-clear glass façade takes advantage of the abundant sunlight and cool ambient climate in San Francisco to passively heat the residences and reduce energy consumption. Targeting a prestigious LEED® Gold certification, One Steuart Lane is poised to become one of San Francisco’s few luxury residential buildings holding this preeminent certification. 

Discreetly positioned where Howard and Steuart Street meet, One Steuart Lane has easily solidified its place as San Francisco’s most coveted new residential address. Beyond the prime waterfront location, One Steuart Lane’s location is within the heart of San Francisco, with unparalleled access to restaurants, retail and entertainment options as well as a wide network of transit options, such the new Salesforce Transit Center, the Ferry Building, BART and the I-80 East Freeway.  

One Steuart Lane is under construction with an anticipated completion in early 2021. The sales gallery will open in early 2020 and sales are being led by leading West Coast condominium sales and marketing company Polaris Pacific.
