Look Inside The District, Lower Pac Height’s Newest Building

Curbed San Francisco

February 11, 2016


The last time we heard about the building planned for 2655 Bush Street in Lower Pacific Heights, it had been bought by developer KB Homes and was transitioning from apartments to condos. Now, the building has a hip new name—The District—and those condos are officially up for sale for prices between $1,250 and $1,500 per square foot.

The building’s main draw is its location on a prime Lower Pacific Heights corner near both the busy Divisadero corridor and not too far from Fillmore Street and Alta Plaza Park. It’s the building’s size—81 units—and that location that are defining its target audience. “It will be a community, and people are actually going to live here, know their neighbors and raise families,” says Chris Apostolopoulos, president and regional general manager of KB Home Northern California. “It’s not 700 units in downtown towers, and we see that in our sales office. People are coming in with their families.”

Units range from a compact 575 square feet up to 1,600 square feet for a two-bedroom-plus-den penthouse on the top level. Pricing begins around $1 million, and there are a smattering of two-bedrooms on the MLS right now for prices between $1,279,200 and $1,418,575. The building has one-to-one parking, a rarity in San Francisco these days, and units boast big Thermidor built-in refrigerators, Bosch stainless steel appliances, and Caesarstone countertops. There are three different color finishes across the units to keep them from all feeling identical.

The condos sit around an interior courtyard that will be landscaped with planters and bamboo, and around 90 percent of the units will have their own outdoor space. There’s also a fitness center, an owners’ lounge, an attended lobby, and a sky terrace with views stretching across the surrounding neighborhoods. Prospective buyers can take hard hat tours and visit both an on-site model unit and the location of their potential purchase rather than having to rely on a remote sales center. The building is still very much under construction, but first move-ins are expected by August.
