A residence which places you in the heart of the city and is your gateway to all of it. Take a Saturday stroll through the Farmer’s Market at the Ferry Building, then catch a game at Oracle Park, or walk to the newly expanded SFMOMA just four blocks from new condos at 181 Fremont. With incredible access to transportation, you’ll have total flexibility when it’s time to hit the road and explore other parts of the Bay Area and beyond.
181 Fremont’s San Francisco-based team leveraged their international experience to create one of the world’s most innovative and durable structures. The caissons at 181 Fremont, the deepest of any condo tower in San Francisco, burrow 260 feet below ground and are anchored into the bedrock. The building rests on forty-two 5 to 6-foot diameter concrete piles socketed into bedrock.
Through ingenious engineering, a high-strength steel exoskeleton structural system behaves like a giant shock absorber, and a set of safety elevators are designed to remain operational during any seismic activity. Taken in total, the building’s innovations have earned it a REDi Gold Rating, the latest resilience-based design guidelines that establish a new beyond-code benchmark for seismic construction.
Designers sourced the finest materials and finishes from around the world for the 181 Fremont condominium residences. Inside and out, every detail has been meticulously designed and considered. Classical materials used in fresh, modern ways suffuse 181 Fremont’s luxurious interiors, creating a sense of natural comfort, accentuated with touches of the extraordinary.
The kitchens at 181 Fremont were designed to be as alluring as they are functional. Brazilian Macaubas quartzite countertops were chosen for their beauty and durability. Valcucine glass cabinets enrich and enhance the kitchen space, the finest in modern Italian cabinetry making its West Coast debut. Select kitchens can be hidden from view, concealed on a whim with a set of ceruse-ebonized oak sliding panels.
The bathrooms are awash in luxury and thoughtful design. Featuring heated floors of full-slab Lincoln Marble and a full-height Arabescato Corchia marble walls and surrounds. The master baths are equipped with soaking tubs with a separate shower, dual vanities and customized storage solutions.
The new condos of 181 Fremont were conceived by innovative designers with discerning eyes for detail. You’ll find that these small details are part of something altogether grand. The front door handles were some of the first items selected to finish the interiors of the luxury condos at 181 Fremont, and are among the most exquisite. The polished brass handles were custom-forged by Parisian artisan Daniel Podva at his studio, Série Rare, a few steps from the Seine. Each one is unique.
The hallway sconces at 181 Fremont began as hand-drawn sketches by Orlando Diaz-Azcuy. Inspired by a bird’s nest and the soft welcoming light cast on the front stoop of his childhood home. From his drawings, a lighting firm rendered the sconces in virtual reality, then brought them to their fully illuminated life.
