This ultra luxury boutique building has no precedent in SF. It is on par with the best NY ultra luxury buildings. Conceived by the Jay Paul Company, built by the award winning contractor Level 10 and designed by Orlando Diaz Azcuy who was most likely given carte blanche judging by the level of luxury.
The tower is about 700 ft to the roof with 54 floors of offices and residential condominiums. To give you an idea of the views you get note that the first floor of the residences is at about the same level as the top of the nearby Millennium tower. Another interesting fact is that Level 10 dug down to more than feet to anchor the tower in bedrock.
The tower is 432,000 sq ft (40,100 m2) of office space on the lower 33 floors (from 3 to 35)and 67 condominiums on the upper 15 floors (from 38 to 52). The 36th floor will contain residential amenities and a two-story open air terrace. The building will have a direct connection to the rooftop park of Transbay via the 5th floor.
The lobby has 25 foot ceilings and is dramatic. Amenities include four distinctive lounge areas, fitness center with yoga room, library, conference room, bar, catering kitchen, piano and wrap around observation terrace.
The marble is from Carrara, the wood from New Guinear, the hand crafted door fixtures from French Artisans.Needless to say, the fact that the homes are so high up in the sky allows not only incredible views but unmatched light. Homes are finished in neutral white and grey with electric window dressing, media units, docking stations, hardwood floors, wine cooler, Miele appliances. Note the lack of baseboards because walls connect to the floors.
12 of the condos are 1/1 but reserved for the 55 original buyers who can use them for guests, staff or office.

In 2007, SKS originally proposed 181 Fremont Street as a 66 floor, 900-foot (274 m) tall mixed-use skyscraper, with 140 residential units and 500,000 square feet (46,452 m2) of office space. However, the developers reduced the height of the project to comply with the parcel’s 700-foot (213 m) height limit, as detailed in the Transbay Center District Plan approved in 2012. Still, this height limit is twice as high as the previous restriction. The tower’s design was approved in December 2012, and the development site was subsequently put on the market by SKS Investments.
On March 29, 2013, Jay Paul Company announced that it acquired the development from SKS Investments and planned “to immediately commence construction” with completion expected in the second quarter of 2015. According to Bloomberg, the building will cost US$375 million to construct, including land acquisition costs. Demolition of the existing structures began in August 2013, with tower construction expected to begin in November. Official groundbreaking ceremonies took place on November 12, 2013, and the luxury residences were officially named Park 181. The name was later changed to simply 181 Fremont Residences. Jay Paul Company announced that the building would cost US$500 million to construct and is scheduled to open in early 2017.
