CLIMBING TO NEW HEIGHTS: SF’S TOP 10 LUXURY RESIDENTIAL HIGH-RISES
If anything is red haute in San Francisco right now, it’s the real estate market, and Luxury high-rises are popping up all over. Here, in alphabetical order, are the city’s most spectacular new luxury condominium and apartment buildings and the ace developers who are building them. Every one of them makes high design, industry-leading amenities, and advanced safety and security systems their top priorities. Several developers have also built or are building nearby affordable housing as part of their deal to win the city’s approval.

Golub & Company, a Chicago-based real estate developer, is making its mark on the San Francisco landscape with two new buildings: the Solaire, a 32-story, 409-unit luxury residential high-rise with green design elements on the corner of Fremont and Folsom in SoMa, and Park Tower, a much-hyped 43-story office building adjacent to the Transbay Terminal and City Park. “San Francisco’s Transbay area is emerging as one of the most exciting micro-markets in the world, and we’re pleased to be part of its revitalization with both residential and office offerings,” Lee Golub, executive vice president, told Haute Living. “Park Tower and Solaire are reshaping the San Francisco skyline, and we believe they will change the way San Franciscans live and work.” The most cutting-edge design techniques, materials, and energy-saving measures are being incorporated into both buildings.
