SAN FRANCISCO, CA - 923 Folsom is redefining city living. The recently completed apartment building offers renters the finishes a discerning buyer would require, along with amenities previously reserved for much larger buildings — all in a community of only 115 rental residences.
"The result is a boutique rental community offering the quality, comfort and sense of home often found only in condominiums, with thoughtful shared spaces that substantially extend the walls of your well-designed residence," said Billie LaBelle, Vice President of Operations for Alliance Residential Company, which professionally manages the community. "923 Folsom leaves the need to buy a house at the door."
Every emphasis is given to cultivating an elevated resident experience. It starts with the double-height, feature bookcase that sets the tone for the community as you enter and flows throughout the many impressive spaces that add to each resident's livable, usable square footage.
The workshop space calls out to makers and doers looking for a garage-like space that few urban residences can deliver. From fixing a bike to assembling a drone, this is your space to create — and it comes with all the comforts one would expect at home, such as an array of tools and a fridge to keep drinks cold.
A dedicated co-working hub delivers an area with collaborative group-seating and individual workstation booths (featuring USB and traditional outlets), complimentary WiFi and a printer/scanner that residents can connect to via Bluetooth on their mobile device. This area is rentable or available on a first-come/first-serve basis. The "Paws & Pedals" wash station is the perfect place to hose off your bike or your furry friends. Perched atop the building is a 7,000-square-foot rooftop deck with fireplace, gas grills and unobstructed southern exposure (perfect for sunrise and sunset yoga with a view). Not to be overlooked are the modern gym with high-performance equipment and the resident lounge and espresso bar.
Inside the residences, you'll find each studio, one- and two-bedroom floor plan was attentively designed with a range of features distinguishing between them, allowing residents to select the home that suits them best — from ground-floor apartments with expansive patios to the singular penthouse with its own private rooftop terrace. Nearly every home offers floor-to-ceiling windows with roller shades to maximize views of SoMa, while GE stainless steel appliances, wood-style plank flooring, custom cabinetry with under-cabinet lighting and quartz countertops, drop-in cooktops, washers and dryers, and walk-in glass showers are just a few of the high-end finishes that 923 Folsom has made a standard.
