SAN FRANCISCO (September 10, 2020) – Related California, the West Coast affiliate of the nation’s largest privately-owned real estate firm, Related Companies, is pleased to announce the opening of Fifteen Fifty, a bold new residential building in San Francisco. Rising 400-feet into the San Francisco skyline, Fifteen Fifty is located at 1550 Mission Street and offers 550 residences ranging in size from studios, one-, two-, and three-bedrooms, as well as a penthouse collection. The timeless exterior design by world-renowned Skidmore, Owings & Merrill (SOM), combined with artistically curated interiors and landscaping by Marmol Radziner, bring the visionary building to life. The opening of Fifteen Fifty arrives in conjunction with the start of move-ins and reveal of three model residences. 

“Fifteen Fifty sets a new benchmark for apartment living in San Francisco, and its successful opening during such an unprecedented time underscores the increased importance of an inspiring home,” said Joe Walsh, Vice President of Related California. “Fifteen Fifty perfectly meets the needs and desires of residents today. With beautiful modern interiors and dramatic city views, along with nearly an acre of amenities – particularly its private parks, rooftop pool, library, and business lounge including private pods designed for remote work – the building allows for a dynamic lifestyle that can be enjoyed by residents only steps from their doors.” 

One Acre of Amenities

On the 11th floor, residents enjoy a rooftop pool deck featuring a hot tub, barbecue grills, and a pool lounge, in addition to an expansive library with floor-to-ceiling shelving and a sports lounge complete with a Steel Parsons Pool Table custom-made by District Mills in Los Angeles. A striking private penthouse club boasts a warm, deep color palette with luxurious marble elements and a mix of vintage and new furniture, as well as a terrace with panoramic views of San Francisco from 40 stories high. Among Fifteen Fifty’s innovative, design-forward amenities is a 24/7-attended double-height lobby featuring Verde Acquarello stone floors, wood paneled walls, a statement-making Icelandic white marble faceted reception desk, and an impressive three-dimensional commissioned wall installation by artist Julian Hoeber.

Interiors and Model Residences by Marmol Radziner 

Featuring dramatic yet warm interiors, Fifteen Fifty’s residences present open kitchens with custom grey oak cabinetry, polished white Caesarstone countertops with Italian Calacatta Caldia marble backsplashes, and Bosch stainless steel smart appliances with Home Connect technology and integrated paneling. Rich bathrooms include custom grey oak vanities adorned with matte black hardware and Winter Cloud marble countertops, custom medicine cabinets with integral lighting, and glass-enclosed showers and tub surrounds, all anchored by dark-grey porcelain tile flooring. Modern features include six-inch-wide-plank flooring throughout, Bosch stacked washers and dryers, customizable Elfa closet shelving systems, Nest thermostats, Salto keyless entry, and Lutron Caseta dimmable switches.  

The three newly completed models – comprising a studio, one-, and two-bedroom – feature sweeping views with interiors designed to reflect the unique personalities of San Francisco residents.   

“Our designs for the models at Fifteen Fifty were inspired by the modern San Francisco market: professional, artful, and diverse. To realize our vision for beautiful and effortless living, we prioritized high-quality materials, attention to detail, and unique touches that create a singular, memorable experience for residents and their guests,” said Ron Radziner, FAIA, Design Partner of Marmol Radziner. 

The studio apartment model presents the ultimate home base that is at once elegant and cozy. Design-forward elements including a blue ceramic stool from The Future Perfect, reclaimed wood bed with built-in bookcase, and offset coffee and side tables from Resident Furniture, create an inviting environment for both lounging and entertaining. Japanese paper weave wallcoverings and whimsical art pieces are highlighted by abundant natural light filtering through floor-to-ceiling windows opposite the living area, which overlook the neighborhood.   

The one-bedroom model offers a sleek, modern oasis for design-savvy residents, boasting expansive windows framing Fifteen Fifty’s private park. The space has ample room for entertaining complete with a spacious u-shaped kitchen, textured warm-toned accessories, a statement-making Lawson-Fenning moreno sofa, a master bedroom which showcases modern design with touches of industrialism, and an aesthetically dramatic yet functional dining area.  

The two-bedroom model is presented as a haven with room for relaxing, entertaining, and everything in-between. The impressive open kitchen presents the perfect space for hosting, complete with a high-top c-shaped table and rich brown barstools. The corner living space with sprawling views in two directions is flooded with natural light and chic furnishings. The master bedroom is composed of a muted gray palette with varying blue-toned accents throughout. The second bedroom is shown as a multi-functional den and ideal work-from-home space with a plush sleeper sofa, oversized cream boucle ottoman, and desk. 

A Vibrant Art Collection by Jessica Silverman Gallery 

Lead Gallerist Jessica Silverman of San Francisco-based Jessica Silverman Gallery curated a thought-provoking art collection for Fifteen Fifty, featuring 32 diverse works by 22 artists, many of whom reside in California. The collection, expertly crafted to reflect the spirit and creativity of San Francisco and foster a dialogue between art and architecture, starts from the streetscape with public works by Catherine Wagner and Shannon Finley, and continues throughout the building’s 40 stories of amenity and residential spaces. Comprised of works in various mediums by notable artists like Julian Hoeber, Angela Bulloch, Clare Rojas, David Huffman and Ad Minoliti, this art collection is a first-of-its-kind for high-end residential buildings, and further attests to the new standard of living that Fifteen Fifty offers. 

Available apartments at Fifteen Fifty are priced starting from $2,950 for studios and Jr one-bedrooms, $3,900 for one-bedrooms, $5,500 for two-bedrooms, and $8,300 for three-bedrooms.
