1483 Sutter Mixed-use

San Francisco, CA (1999)


1483 Sutter Street defines luxury high-rise condominium living in San Francisco. The property combines the finest qualities of a small hotel with the benefits of a large-scale, mixed-use property. This 17-story, 164-unit high-rise is located in the Lower Pacific Heights residential neighborhood of San Francisco. It was completed in 1999 at the cost of $45 million.


Close to the City’s cultural center, Union Square, and the numerous restaurants and retailers located in the Van Ness Corridor, Sutter Street also provides residents with the convenience of a private entry to a 30,000-square foot gourmet market integrated into the development. Capitalizing on a sloping street-to-street lot, Sutter Street was designed to provide an exclusive residential entrance on Sutter Street, with a separate entry and parking area for the market on Post Street.


Sutter Street’s lobby features extensive use of warm inlaid wood and stone, reflecting the tasteful appointments and quality craftsmanship found throughout the property. The security/guest services desk, staffed fulltime, and community amenities including a fitness center, spa, and saunas enhance the residential experience. All residents have a deeded parking space in the secured subterranean garage.


Despite its debut in the depths of a real estate recession, Sutter Street realized sales prices and absorption rates higher than any of its competition. At least one YSA principal participated as design architect, supervising architect and/or senior designer while associated with the architect-of-record for this project.
