340 Fremont Street

Client Equity Residential
Location San Francisco, CA
Project Type Residential
Status Completed in 2016

340 Fremont's form creates opposing glass facades, anchored on either end by patterned concrete panels.

340 Fremont is a new 40-story tower located in the Rincon Hill district of San Francisco. The tower includes 348 rental units, a full amenity floor, and outdoor garden areas that occur on multiple levels of the building podium.

The tower’s west façade features a curving glass wall with amazing views to the Bay Bridge and Treasure Island. Vertical fins accentuate the façade’s curvature, while creating a distinctive moiré pattern on the building. 

The center massing of the project is more robust, using a precast concrete system with a weave pattern, and creating bevels that change character throughout the day as the sun travels around the building. On the building’s north façade, floor to ceiling glass reflects the water and sky, allowing for dramatic panoramic views of the bay. 

At the ground level, the sloping site created an opportunity to create four individual townhouses that are physically part of the podium and accessible from the street. Entrances to these units are defined by shifting panels in the building façade, creating texture and definition for these unique units.

Interiors, by Handel Interiors, are grounded in a Northern Californian sensibility. 

A palette of natural materials brings a casual yet sophisticated warmth to the public spaces. Crafted walnut paneling and light beige floors echo the beaches and woodlands of the surrounding environment. Open, loft-like ceilings of walnut slats define seating areas with classic, yet modern seating groups of high-backed leather: equally ideal for the morning paper or early evening conversation.
