Have you heard of The Pacific?

Business Insider published a post about The Most Luxurious Towers in 7 Major Cities. Forget Millennium. Infinity? Nah. Maybe Lumina. Nope. They listed The Pacific. Check out their website.

“San Francisco has a notoriously hot real-estate market right now, but the options skew toward traditional townhouses on picturesque streets. Luxury towers are fewer and farther between, with the notable exception of the Lumina. Completed last year, units sell for about $2,000 a square foot. The building boasts a massive gourmet market on the main floor, as well as a major rooftop terrace.

But for a unique option with standout amenities, buyers can now look to The Pacific. A new development in the exclusive (and very expensive) Pacific Heights enclave, it’s not a traditional tower complex, but instead a combination of a condo tower and customizable “row houses,” which emulate San Francisco’s more traditional architecture.”

 

Architect: Handel Architects

Number of stories: Nine in the tower, plus 10 row houses

Unit pricing: Not released

Penthouse price: Not released

Penthouse price per square foot: Not released, but expected to set price-per-square-foot records for the San Francisco area.

Perks: Private gardens and terraces, fitness center, fully furnished guest suite for visitors, and personal concierge and valet service.

Standout amenity: The “Observatory Lounge,” with Golden Gate Bridge views.

Open for residency: Late 2016

San Francisco and Apple’s Newest Store

Everyone is abuzz with the new Apple retail store on the corner of Market and 4th St. Saturday marked the 15th anniversary of Apple opening its first stores and  boy was this new retail store a great way to celebrate. Not only because well, its an Apple store but because of its top technology innovative features.

It is designed by UK architecture firm Foster + Partners, whose recent work has ranged from designing drone ports to robot-built 3D-printed shelters for Mars to futuristic fuel stations.

 

We’re sure you’ve already seen the trending news as far as the building itself so here’s the highlight areas broken down:

 

The Avenue 

“The Avenue is a new take on displaying products. It runs along a wall and has interactive “windows” in which items are displayed, inspired by seasonal store-front displays. The displays are attended by staff to provide visitors with information.”

The Genius Grove

“The Genius Grove offers a more relaxed setting amongst a small grove of trees, each within a single planter that doubles as a comfortable place to sit and rest while an Apple Genius answers any questions.”
