Sustainable Jewel-Box Building in the Heart of San Francisco
August 17, 2017
Pacific Heights’ crown jewel, The Pacific is a boutique community of 76 residences representing the pinnacle of cosmopolitan living in one of San Francisco’s most sought after enclaves. A building with no parallel or precedence, The Pacific is not only an architectural marvel renowned for its collection of five-star service and amenities, it is a LEED-certified building, incorporating adaptive reuse and achievements in energy efficiency, healthy indoor air quality and water-use reduction.
With stunning architecture envisioned and executed by internationally acclaimed Glenn Rescalvo at Handel Architects and interior design of all common spaces and residences by Handel Interior Design, The Pacific has engaged with the Bay Area’s foremost luxury residential design team to reimagine this former school of dentistry into this luxurious masterpiece in Pacific Heights. Interpreting the area’s historic Victorian style, the tower features bay windows that resemble the facets of a jewel.
With a complete range of amenities, including private vehicle valet, full service concierge, lobby attendant, a private Observatory Lounge overlooking the Bay and Golden Gate Bridge, a private guest residence called “The Fillmore”, and a world class fitness center, The Pacific is a stellar example where luxury meets sustainability to create a magnum opus.
The building’s commitment to LEED for Homes certification not only embraces the environmental benefits of green building and sustainable design, but its economic and health benefits as well. Additional LEED qualifications include bicycle storage, designated parking for low-emission vehicles, quality insulation and air sealing, high efficiency water fixtures, energy efficient lighting fixtures, low-VOC paint, good ventilation, and drought-resistant native plants.
