Soaring sculpted tower by Pritzker Prize-awarded Rem Koolhaas’ OMA offers masterfully designed residences with inspired interiors by Clodagh Design plus 30,000 square feet of amenities, and panoramic views of the Bay and City
SAN FRANCISCO (June 21, 2018) – Related California, the West Coast affiliate of the nation’s largest privately-owned real estate firm, Related Companies, today announced the commencement of sales for its highly anticipated luxury condominium development, The Avery. Located in the heart of San Francisco’s East Cut neighborhood, The Avery’s impressive exterior is designed by Pritzker Prize-awarded Rem Koolhaas’ Office of Metropolitan Architecture (OMA) while acclaimed Clodagh Design brings nature-inspired living to the interiors and amenities. Together, the team created a striking 56-story sculpted glass tower offering 118 exquisite condominium residences starting on the 33rdfloor, breathtaking panoramic views, and unprecedented amenities and services.
Related is one of the nation’s preeminent developers of luxury residential properties. The company’s portfolio of residential projects in California includes The Century, Argyle House and The Emerson in Los Angeles, Ocean Avenue South in Santa Monica, and The Paramount in San Francisco. Related is also developing The Grand, a one-of-a-kind mixed-use development project designed by renowned architect Frank Gehry that will serve as a new cultural and civic destination in downtown Los Angeles.
“The Avery embodies San Francisco’s next influential chapter, delivering an extraordinary lifestyle complete with sweeping views, world-class design, and outstanding services and amenities that are hallmarks of Related,” said Gino Canori, Executive Vice President and Chief Development Officer at Related California. “Today marks a significant milestone for The Avery as we officially launch sales and present a one-of-a-kind lifestyle in the City’s newest and most inspiring neighborhood.”
An architectural statement, The Avery reflects the visionary work of OMA and represents the firm’s first-ever high-rise in San Francisco. Starting from an inviting ground floor presence accented by limestone and bronze details, and soaring 618 feet into the sky, the building boasts a striking glass façade that tapers at specific angles as it rises, uniquely providing residences with endless views in virtually every direction. In keeping with Related’s commitment to sustainability, the building is anticipated to achieve LEED Gold Certification.
“The Avery was shaped by its surroundings and spectacular views in the heart of San Francisco’s new downtown,” said Shohei Shigematsu, Partner and Director at OMA. “With The Avery, we were given the opportunity to make our mark on the City’s iconic skyline and to become an integral part of this special place with the tower’s bold visual design and with Avery Lane – a neighborhood paseo lined with dining and retail that connects the building and its residents to the community.”
Beginning on the 33rd floor atop luxury rental apartments, residences at The Avery feature expansive floor-to-ceiling glass windows in every room framing panoramic views of the San Francisco Bay, the Bay Bridge and City skyline. The offering will feature thoughtfully designed one-, two- and three-bedroom residences and The Avery Penthouse Collection.
Inspired by the Bay Area’s connection to nature, Clodagh selected luxurious finishes that cater to the discerning taste of The Avery buyer. Refined details include hand-selected Italian Michelangelo marble kitchen counters with full-height backsplashes and island waterfalls, in addition to Miele appliances with integrated paneling. Spa-inspired master bathrooms boast walls clad in full-height marble tiling, custom dual vanities with Cristallo Pearl marble counters, frameless glass showers and Kaldewei soaking tubs. Additionally, residences feature 7” wide plank oak flooring throughout, Dornbracht fixtures, and a meticulous design influenced by the principals of feng shui. Residents will also enjoy arriving in a glamorous private bronze-accented limestone lobby entrance with an around-the-clock concierge and 24/7 on-site valet parking.
“The Avery’s interiors were shaped by the Bay Area’s magnificent natural attractions from the redwoods to the ocean,” said Clodagh. “I believe good design supports well-being and can transform people’s lives. This is certainly true at The Avery where the mindfulness and focus on sustainability that is so inherent to the culture of San Francisco were integrated into the building’s design. From endless views to glowing textured woods and natural stones – each finish was carefully selected to connect people to nature.”
This desirable new address will uniquely provide residents one of the most exceptional living experiences that San Francisco has to offer. Inside The Avery, residents will enjoy 30,000 square feet of dedicated amenity space that spans over three floors. Offering an unprecedented array of health, recreation and entertainment spaces, amenities will include a state-of-the-art Equinox®-curated fitness center, a 60-foot indoor lap pool, a professional grade demonstration kitchen, private formal dining room, media lounge and game room, business center with all of the technology essentials, an outdoor landscaped terrace and pet spa. Residents will benefit from the highest level of service with a precision trained staff along with on-site management by Related Management and complimentary services from Life Simplified by Related and Hello Alfred, including white glove move-in service and completion of weekly to-do lists.
Just steps from The Avery residences are The Shops at Avery Lane, a carefully curated collection of first-rate retail partners who will occupy the 17,000 square feet amidst a captivating paseo – delivering the ultimate upscale neighborhood experience. Located only two blocks from the new Salesforce Transit Center and 5.4-acre Salesforce Park, and within walking distance to some of the world’s most influential corporations from Facebook and Google to WeWork and Amazon, The Avery provides convenient access to the City’s new heart as well as access to fine dining, world-class shopping, culture and sporting venues.
Available residences at The Avery are priced from the high $1 millions for one-bedrooms, high $2 millions for two-bedrooms, and high $3 millions for three-bedrooms.
