Perhaps you’ve seen the glass high rise under construction at 488 Folsom Street named The Avery, this soaring tower currently holds the record seeking price of $41 million for its penthouse. The crown jewel sits atop a sculpted glass tower on the 56th floor. Perhaps the most astonishing feature (out of many) is the unprecedented 1,580 square foot outdoor living space, complete with 360-degree iconic views of SF and the ability for the new owner to help customize its features (think yoga, fire pits, outdoor gardens, or really good people watching).
There is no shortage of other eye-catching features throughout the 8,482-square-foot interior either. It features 4 beds, 6 baths, and 2 powder rooms (a.k.a half baths) as well as a library, media room, gym and sauna, family room, formal living and dining rooms with fireplace. The luxurious gourmet kitchen with state-of-the-art Miele appliances, two dishwashers, Sub-Zero refrigerator and a full-height wine refrigerator includes an oversized island (for cooking and casual dining) and walk-in pantry. Finally, the generous master suite includes not one but two master baths and walk-in closets, and two lounge areas with windows – clearly the views are of utmost importance to the design of this top-floor beauty.
The Avery will also offer six half-floor penthouses and luxe building amenities, all envisioned by OMA and Clodagh Design firms (who also provided the very realistic looking renderings you see above). The first of the total 122 condominium units will start being complete and available for living this spring (very soon!). The condos will follow.
