Folsom Bay Tower in San Francisco, California by Studio Gang

Folsom Bay Tower is an urban residential community at the heart of San Francisco, just blocks from the Bay Bridge, Embarcadero, and Rincon Park.

Rising to 400 feet, the tower is low enough to be sensitive to its natural environment and urban context, yet tall enough to accommodate a wide range of units, with more than a third designated below market rate.

The design evolves the classic bay window, a familiar architectural feature of San Francisco’s early houses. Twisting incrementally over the height of the tower, the bay windows offer ample views, light, and air and inform the building’s distinctive form and texture—the result of special attention to the building’s energy performance and how it is experienced.

The tower meets the ground at a pleasant, human scale and offers retail space fronting Folsom and Main Streets, contributing new pedestrian amenities to a highly walkable area of the city with excellent transportation connections.
