Featuring a unique design concept that maximizes outdoor exposure and natural light, Maison au Pont condominium residences will be available for sale by early summer in San Francisco’s highly sought-after Marina District.
An onsite sales center will open in early February in the main building at 2448 Lombard Street. There are 22 different floor plans for the project’s 43 condominium homes, ranging from studios to four-bedroom residences and priced from the $700,000’s. Most of the residences are in the four-story Lombard Street building with a striking wood-and-glass façade; there is also a smaller townhome-style structure facing Divisadero Street.
Maison au Pont is the sixth collaboration of San Francisco-based JS Sullivan Development (JSS) and JSS Creative Director Alan Tse, who was named a 2017 Design Vanguard by Architectural Record magazine. The rectangular site’s unusual dimensions - with street-facing frontage exceeding the property’s depth – allowed Tse to defy the constraints of typical multifamily building design.
“Infill lots found in most of San Francisco are usually proportioned to have much more depth than width, resulting in deep silo-like living spaces with only a narrow source of daylight from one end of each home,” Tse explained. “With Maison au Pont, we were able to rotate this plan, providing a panoramic orientation parallel to Lombard Street, allowing abundant daylight to enter both living rooms and bedrooms.” Tse’s design further maximizes daylighting with the use of interior plant-filled garden courts.
Maison au Pont is located in a quaint, walkable neighborhood a block from Chestnut Street with its array of boutiques, local cafés, and culinary destinations. A few blocks further are beaches, trails, and waterfront parks stretching from Fort Mason to The Presidio and beyond.
It’s an appealing lower-density setting, remarked Tse. “You are not sandwiched between commercial buildings of different heights from different eras. Instead, you are looking out to terraced residential streets and the serene expanse of the Bay.”
The community’s amenities include a roof deck with Bay views and an outdoor grilling station. The main building’s ground floor features an impressive lobby, secured resident parking, and four retail spaces totaling 3,712 square feet. High-tech features include a rooftop solar photovoltaic array that provides power to the common areas and Google Fiber Webpass for state-of-the-art Internet connectivity.
Maison au Pont’s interior design signifies modernity with crisp edges and surfaces, while adding the warmth of wood-textured kitchen cabinets, custom-engineered hardwood floors, and European wood-veneered doors. State-of-the-art kitchens feature Silestone quartz countertops and backsplashes, Bosch double ovens, Brizo faucets, and Fisher & Paykel dishwashers. Luxurious bathrooms include marble stone showers, porcelain plank tiling, and single or double vanities.
