Distinguished San Franciscan
7 Units | AIA Merit Award
On the summit of Russian Hill, these luxury condominiums feature the district’s tradition of distinguished architecture.
This seven unit, award-winning condominium building was designed by George Homsey of Esherick, Homsey, Dodge & Davis and constructed by C.M. Peletz Co. The building, on the summit of Russian Hill follows the district’s traditions of distinguished architecture with input from members of the Livermore family ( one of the initial developers), using natural shingles, and replication, on the garage entrance and balconies, of the square-sectioned urns found on the original Polk designed balustrades found at the end of Vallejo Street. The shell construction is three-story, wood frame over an underground concrete parking structure. The interior of each individual space is luxuriously finished, befitting the location as one of the most sought-after streets in San Francisco. Challenges to the construction were many, including hard-rock excavation for the underground garage, preservation and protection of the historical “Marshall Houses” to the west as well as operation on a tight, zero-setback site. Neighbor interest on design implementation and logistics were also time consuming, but important. Rapport with neighbors, city officials and other interested parties on all projects is a hallmark of C. M. Peletz Co. and one key to our success.
