View from the Top: Touring San Francisco's New Tallest, Mixed-Use High-Rise

August 23, 2017

Earlier this month, APR’s director of career development for San Francisco, Marin and the Wine Country, Christi Willits, led an APR Master’s Training Group to one of the highest points in San Francisco to talk about the future.
From the 70th floor of 181 Fremont Residences in the city’s SOMA neighborhood, APR agents Nestle Lapena, Subhi Barakat and Adam Lash were introduced to the city’s tallest mixed-use high-rise with a behind-the-scenes hard-hat tour.

“The best way to see San Francisco’s future is to step foot into it and share these experiences with our clients,” said Willits of the tour. Touring the 70th floor, 7,000-square-foot penthouse, listed for sale for a record $42 million, the APR group also toured other to-be-completed floors of the building, and received an early preview of several two- and three-bedroom layouts planned for just above the building’s wrap-around observation terrace.
According to Willits, first-hand knowledge of San Francisco’s newest luxury developments – knowing the construction, the design elements and luxe-trends – will help prepare the area’s agents to be better informed about the changes and rapid developments across the Bay Area. “We’re experts in our industry,” said Willits. “The way we remain experts is to go beyond what we see on paper or online. We have to have these types of experiences and insights to best relate to the luxury buyer interested in new construction in the Bay Area and beyond.”
The APR Master’s Training Group was accompanied by APR Sales Manager Rick Turley, as well as representatives of 181 Fremont Residences.

Alain Pinel Realtors Investment Group Lists Historic “Steinhart Apartments”

July 27, 2015

57-Unit Nob Hill Apartment Building Offered at $27 Million

952 Sutter Exterior
SAN FRANCISCO, CA – The Steinhart Apartments at 952 Sutter Street in Nob Hill, San Francisco have been listed for $27 million by the Alain Pinel Realtors (APR) Investment Group’s Managing Director Mark Bonn and Senior Sales Associate Mirella Webb. Built in 1910, the six-story residential building, formerly the “Steinhart Hotel,” is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. A rare opportunity, 48 of the 57 units will be delivered vacant at close, allowing a new owner to capitalize on the continued strength of the San Francisco apartment market.
“With vacancies in the city at an all-time low, this unique opportunity grants any buyer incredible flexibility,” noted Bonn. “The new owner could operate the property as traditional high-end apartments or as furnished rentals, as each unit has furniture, fixtures, and equipment in-place.”
Originally constructed by Ignatz Steinhart, banker, entrepreneur, and benefactor of the city’s Steinhart Aquarium in Golden Gate Park, the property has been meticulously preserved largely due to its former operation as a hotel. The historic turn-of-the-century character is still present in the period detail in the grand lobby, high ceilings, and the mezzanine-level library.
While celebrating the original architecture, the apartments offer modern conveniences. The spacious and highly-stylized apartments were designed by William Sofield, famed designer of the Ralph Lauren and Gucci boutiques. Additionally, 15 of the units were recently renovated by leading San Francisco designer Jonathan Rachman. Each apartment is fully furnished and includes full-sized kitchens and private bathrooms.
“With a mix of studios, one bedrooms, two bedrooms, and a single four bedroom, many of the units are very large, offering conversion potential to add additional bedrooms to existing units or possibly even more units,” according to Webb. “Ownership of this property would immediately place the investor in the elite group of major multi-family owners in San Francisco.”
Located in Nob Hill, the building is five blocks from Union Square and a few blocks from many of the performing arts theaters in the city.
