Designed by Handel Architects, 288 Pacific provides thirty-three homes and a retail offering in the heart of Jackson Square, San Francisco’s most historic neighbourhood
Situated in the discreet Jackson Square neighbourhood in downtown San Francisco, the collection of homes at 288 Pacific offers generous ceiling heights, a beautifully appointed salon lobby and rooftop terraces. Two retail spaces provide local amenity.
Handel Architects designed the building to fit within the context of this historic setting, known for its design aesthetic, Gold Rush era buildings, waterfront access and recent renaissance with the arrival of The Battery Club and boutique European fashion brands.
In the time of California’s gold-rush, Jackson Square was where San Francisco’s coastline originated, adding further to the neighborhood’s vintage and allure today.
In September 2016, after an archaeological excavation, the ‘Arkansas’ – a legendary ship from the Gold Rush era – was discovered on 288 Pacific’s development site. The City and the San Francisco Maritime Historic Park asked that its location be mapped and that the ship be left in situ, untouched by construction, a request that we honoured.
