(Excerpt from Press Release)
San Francisco, CA – Mayor Ed Lee joins the Jay Paul Company, the award-winning, San Francisco-based real estate developer known for innovative projects throughout California, to break ground the new high rise building, Park 181 at 181 Fremont, a world-class residential and office tower heralding the next phase of growth in the city’s South of Market (SOMA) district and taking the lead in defining the new Transbay Transit Center complex neighborhood.
181 Fremont will ascend 802 feet and comprise 54 stories to become the tallest mixed-use office and residential tower in San Francisco and in the Western United States. It is one of only two buildings that will be directly connected to the 5.4-acre rooftop park atop the adjacent Transbay Transit Center.
The dazzling new structure will offer 411,000 square feet of Class A+ office space on 33 floors, providing open floor plates with optimum workspace flexibility and impressive views. Inhabitants of Park 181, the collection of high-end residences on floors 39 through 53, will enjoy exclusive amenities such as an Owners’ Lounge, Fitness Center, wrap-around balcony, BBQ grill, fire pit, kitchen, and dining room on the 37th floor, which provides an interval between commercial and residential spaces. Sixty-eight two- and three-bedroom ultra-luxury residences ranging in size from 1,400 to 3,600 square feet will occupy the tower’s upper levels.
Targeted to achieve a LEED Platinum certification, 181 Fremont will incorporate innovative design strategies for sustainability, water savings and energy efficiency while providing a safer and healthier living and working environment.
