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 called The Austin.
Located in the Lower Polk neighborhood, the property features 100 residences and will include easily accessible amenities for residents who are used to flexible work schedules and social, active lifestyles. These “mobile professionals” will benefit from uninterrupted Wi-Fi connectivity that extends throughout all communal spaces including the lobby lounge, where comfortable seating options abound and relaxing music fills the air. The roof deck dinner tables can become conference tables, and a landscaped courtyard with Zen-like ambiance adds an outdoor office option.
“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.”
Speaking of the city, The Austin is conveniently located a short distance from shopping, dining and entertainment options in the Polk Street neighborhood. This vibrant community has a diverse, melting-pot mixture of old and new businesses that coexist effortlessly together, an atmosphere that meshes well with the tech-focused approach of the property. The Austin is also centrally located in close proximity to the financial district, Silicon Valley, Golden Gate Bridge, Union Square, Nob Hill, Pacific Heights, Cow Hollow and Russian Hill.
Looking inside the walls of the property, interior designer Vivian Lee of Edmonds + Lee used a welcoming and laid-back aesthetic when designing the common spaces. Inside the studio apartments, one- and two-bedroom homes will include top-of-the-line appliances and fixtures from high-end European manufacturers like Miele, Bosch and Hansgrohe. Bathrooms also feature floating vanities, hidden drawers and custom cabinetry by local San Francisco cabinetmaker Sozo Studio that add simple, understated flair. Floor-to-ceiling windows allow natural light to flow through the space, and showcase the expansive views of the city. On the exterior of the property, some additions that future residents can expect are a dog washing facility, fire pits and barbecue stations.
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, which will further the work of the neighborhood community group’s Lower Polk Alley Initiative. The goal of this initiative is to reinvent the six alleys extending from the Polk Street commercial spine into urban open spaces and develop new opportunities to engage the community.
Sales for The Austin, located at 1545 Pine Street, commence early 2017 with exclusive partner The Mark Company, and prices start in the low $600,000s. Learn more at TheAustinSF.com.
