Recommended Posts











"Client: Malcolm Properties, Inc.

Client: Lennar Urban

Facility: Residential, Retail, Parking

Size: 205,000 SF

Cost: $60 Million

Status: Under Construction

The design for 631 Folsom Street incorporates goals established in the Rincon Place, the Transbay Plan, and the General Plan for downtown San Francisco by creating a high-density project that preserves sunlight and air, provides open space, and enhances the development of the area.

The project consists of a 21-story residential tower over a single-story podium, which contains retail space and a residential lobby along Folsom Street. The storefront facade is set back to align with the existing street-wall. A new park between 631 and 633 Folsom adds open space and further enhances pedestrian street life.

The massing is tall and slender to maintain view corridors, provide sunlight and air at street level, and give units natural light. The light-colored pre-cast concrete, the bluish glass, and metal curtain wall give the facades an expression of lightness and transparency."
