Pacific Eagle Holdings, a San Francisco-based real estate owner, developer and manager known for world-class properties in premier U.S. gateway markets, announces its first ground up, for sale condominium project in San Francisco – The Austin. Residents of The Austin, located in the Lower Polk neighborhood, will have all the amenities at their fingertips to take advantage of the increasing trend of flexible company hours while enjoying a social and active lifestyle. The property features 100 residences and is conveniently located a short stroll from shopping, dining and entertainment options in the vibrant Polk Street neighborhood. It is centrally located in close proximity to the financial district, mid-market technology hub, Silicon Valley, Golden Gate Bridge and Union Square as well as Nob Hill, Pacific Heights, Cow Hollow and Russian Hill.
“The Austin seeks to inspire creativity and foster networking, while offering tailored solutions for the modern professional who is able to take advantage of flexible office hours,” said Hans Galland, Senior Vice President of Development for Pacific Eagle. “San Francisco buyers are seeking intriguing alternatives to traditional living and will appreciate our tech focus and sustainable design, as well as being located close to the best the city has to offer.”
The property equips residents with uninterrupted Wi-Fi connectivity throughout all communal spaces including the lobby lounge, where comfortable seating options abound and relaxing music fills the air. On a nice day, the roof deck dinner tables become conference tables, and a landscaped courtyard with a Zen-like ambiance adds an outdoor office option for residents. The front desk acts as a concierge should a courier or lunch delivery arrive. And to keep the creative juices flowing, there’s coffee – and sometimes wine – flowing.
Interior designer Vivian Lee of Edmonds + Lee used a welcoming and laid back aesthetic when designing the common spaces. Future residents can expect to additionally enjoy a dog-washing facility, fire pits and BBQ stations. The studio, one- and two-bedroom homes will include top-of-the-line fixtures and kitchen appliances – from high-end European manufacturers such as Miele, Bosch and Hansgrohe. In the bathrooms, floating vanities, hidden drawers and custom cabinetry by local San Francisco cabinetmaker Sozo Studio add a simple, understated flair. Floor-to-ceiling windows allow natural light to flow through the space, and showcase the expansive views of the city.
With The Austin, Pacific Eagle is supporting the neighborhood by offering one of its three retail suites on the building’s ground floor to the Lower Polk Community Benefit District (CBD). The CBD manages a special financial assessment collected from the neighborhood property owners to fund improvements to Lower Polk’s livability and vitality. The CBD will use the space fronting Austin Alley to house a gallery for local artists.
The activation of Austin Alley will continue the momentum of the Lower Polk Alley Initiative, a major undertaking of the Lower Polk Neighbors community group and supported by the CBD. The goal of the initiative is to reimagine the six alleys extending from the Polk Street commercial spine as urban open spaces and develop new opportunities to engage the community around these improvements.
The Austin is located at 1545 Pine Street. Sales commence early 2017 with exclusive partner The Mark Company, prices start in the low $600,000’s. Learn more at TheAustinSF.com or the project’s Facebook, Twitter or Instagram pages.
