Blanc, A Sneak Peak Into One of San Francisco’s Newest Developments

Blanc, at 1080 Sutter, is a new San Francisco development with occupancy expecting to fill by early December. This 35 unit two- and three-bedroom boutique residence designed by award winning San Francisco Architect, Stanley Saitowitz, is one of 17 new developments on the market or coming up in the next 6 months. I was able to take an early hard hat tour of the development and get a sneak peak into what residents can expect in this new condominium and with over 30% of these luxury homes sold already, this property is going fast.

Saitowitz and developer JS Sullivan have created something truly interesting with this TenderNob building. As Sean Sullivan has stated in a Blanc Q&A, there is a focus on spacious floorplans, reasonable city pricing (a majority of the 2-bedroom floorplans are being priced at under $1 million), and strong consideration of the city and Nob Hill neighborhood. The building is located in an incredibly bustling part of San Francisco. With a walking score of 100, a transit score of 100, and a bike score of 77, this address is a winner in terms of having everything the city has to offer at your fingertips.

The design of this building has brought in real excitement and has much to do with star-architect Stanley Saitowitz. As a beloved Bay Area architect and professor of Architecture at the University of California, Berkeley, Saitowitz has brought his signature monochromatic aesthetic to Blanc. The balance of modernization with San Francisco’s classic feel was paramount in the direction of this design and has led to a focus on light and views. Throughout each unit large and interestingly spaced windows frame the rooms and draw in light. The interiors contain sleek and simplistic lines with warm wood finishes, while the common areas utilize uplighting and white Italian porcelain.

Blanc also features such high-end amenities as air conditioning, a design center to customize your space, lotteried bike parking and car parking. Units range in size from 750 to 1300 square feet and prices for initial release range from $680,000 to $920,000. HOA dues are currently ranging from $487 to $594. A link to the buildings various floor plans can be found at the Blanc website. Appointments with the sales office are required at this time, as it is a hard hat construction site at this time.   Feel free to contact me if you are interested in a tour in this or any of the other new San Francisco developments.
