SAN FRANCISCO (February 11, 2020) – Related California, the West Coast affiliate of the nation’s most prominent privately-owned real estate firm, Related Companies, today announces the launch of leasing for Fifteen Fifty in San Francisco. Rising 400-feet into the San Francisco skyline, Fifteen Fifty is situated in one of the City’s most central locations and poised to become an instant landmark. Offering 550 residences ranging in size from studios, one-, two-, and three-bedrooms, as well as an elegant penthouse collection, Fifteen Fifty will also be home to the highly anticipated 32,000-square-foot Equinox Van Mission Fitness Club and the new location of Bar Agricole, the beloved James Beard award-winning contemporary tavern.
Featuring 40,000 square feet of thoughtfully designed amenities, including a 12,000 square foot private park, Fifteen Fifty offers residents an inspired lifestyle anchored in the dynamic new neighborhood of Van Mission, located at the nexus of San Francisco’s treasured neighborhoods of Hayes Valley, the Mission and SoMa. Timeless exterior design by world-renowned Skidmore, Owings & Merrill (SOM), combined with artistically curated interiors and landscaping by AD100 design firm Marmol Radziner, bring the visionary building to life.
“The development of Fifteen Fifty has been a collaborative effort amongst some of the best designers, architects and builders in the world, and we believe we have created a new benchmark for residential living in San Francisco that will serve as a gateway to the Van Mission neighborhood,” said Matthew Witte, Principal of Related California.
Joe Walsh, Vice President of Related California, continued, “There has been a focus on quality, thoughtfully designed spaces and a special attention to detail across the project. Fifteen Fifty delivers a unique combination of a central location, expansive indoor and outdoor amenities, a new Equinox and a great new restaurant in Bar Agricole, all living under one roof.”
Iconic Architecture & Artistic Design
The tallest structure in the neighborhood, Fifteen Fifty’s cascading setbacks create the illusion of a luminous 40-story glass waterfall. Conceived by SOM, one of the most influential architecture firms in the world, Fifteen Fifty features natural light that seamlessly weaves into the building starting with the base, where a sculptural, three-dimensional canopy creates a dynamic frame to capture the changing light patterns floating above the storefronts and residential entry. The horizon line of the entryway has bronze and wood details with limestone. Fifteen Fifty anticipates LEED Gold certification.
The building’s Marmol Radziner-designed interiors offer dramatic yet warm spaces that reflect the cool, individualistic aesthetic and personality of San Francisco. The light-filled double-height lobby with a 24/7 concierge and thoughtfully curated art and design establishes Fifteen Fifty’s welcoming atmosphere the moment you arrive.
Lobby highlights include Verde Acquarello stone floors, blackened steel walls, and a statement-making Icelandic white marble faceted reception desk. A commissioned wall installation by artist Julian Hoeber, comprised of 50 separate three-dimensional panels, makes an immediate impression.
Designed to be statements in the sky, the residences incorporate materials and finishes that are both modern and timeless, with handcrafted hardware, fumed-oak flooring, precision millwork, and steel-framed windows, all accentuated by breathtaking panoramic views. The bespoke amenities are intended to be an extension of the home for discerning residents who want a space that is beautifully designed and boasts thoughtfully selected furniture and highlights that include mural tiled walls by Heath Ceramics.

Equinox Fitness Club

Notably, Fifteen Fifty will also be the new home to San Francisco gem, Bar Agricole, which won Outstanding Restaurant Design as well as last year’s Outstanding Bar Program by the prestigious James Beard Foundation Awards. Its new iteration, a 5,000-square foot space with interiors designed by Snøhetta, will be a significant spirits hub for education, tasting, retail, and celebration. When it opened in 2010, Bar Agricole pioneered the category of a destination bar that serves notable food, and the new location will continue with this tradition serving a “seasonal Northern California tavern menu” centered around a wood-burning oven and grill.
Residents of Fifteen Fifty will have premier access to a customized spirits and wine club in addition to exclusive access to food delivery upstairs to their homes.
Adjacent to Bar Agricole’s main venue, there will be a small retail space specializing in artisan and single-origin spirits produced under the Bar Agricole imprint as well as notable finds imported from various global research trips.
Modern Yet Classic Residences
With interiors by Architectural Digest top 100 design firm Marmol Radziner, the residences embody a rare artistry that combines with sweeping views to set a significantly higher standard of living in San Francisco. The curated mix of materials and finishes is forward-facing yet timelessly classic, with handcrafted hardware, fumed-oak flooring, precision millwork, steel-framed windows and sophisticated color palettes. The light-filled, open-plan designs create rich, inviting environments.
Open kitchens boast custom Grey Oak cabinetry, polished white Caesarstone countertops with Italian Calacatta Caldia marble backsplashes, and Bosch stainless steel smart appliances with Home Connect technology. Rich bathrooms showcase Grey Oak vanities adorned with matte black hardware, custom medicine cabinets with integral lighting, and Winter Cloud marble countertops and glass-enclosed showers/ tub surrounds.
Lush Landscape & Living Wall
With an emphasis on creating an indoor-outdoor sanctuary for residents, the Marmol Radziner designed landscaping interweaves with the interior spaces and looks striking from every angle including the bird’s-eye view from the apartments. Amenity decks are planted with a vibrant palette of native and Mediterranean species. A captivating live oak tree serves as a focal point of the private park, complemented by groves of birch trees set in gravel, zinc water features, and multiple seating areas with outdoor fire pits. Adjacent to the lobby entrance will be a dynamic living green wall, created by David Brenner, founder and lead designer of Habitat Horticulture, who is responsible for the dramatic installations at SFMOMA and Salesforce Tower.
Expertly curated by Jessica Silverman of Jessica Silverman Gallery, the diverse art collection at Fifteen Fifty mixes local and international artists whose work addresses the interconnected dynamics of art and architecture.
