Coming early 2017 at the corner or Pine and Polk is another new development by the Mark Company, called The Austin. Designed by Edmonds + Lee, this bold new building will have 88 residences ranging in price from studios as low as $600,000 to two bedrooms for $1,700,000. The Austin’s façade of large white rectangles adds to the city’s skyline from a distance—while from within, it becomes apparent that each window frames a unique perspective of the city. Each unit will have floor to ceiling windows and high-end finishes. There will be ample bike and vehicle parking, and the Presidio is not far away for biking. The building will have two fronts, one on Polk and the other on Austin Alley. Says the architect Vivian Lee, they wanted to celebrate the alley’s uniqueness and make it feel important, so they have developed a pedestrian friendly outdoor common space. Also, with the idea that people work at home a lot, the building will have wifi throughout, and encourages people to work in their lounge lobby, landscaped courtyard, or the roof deck with fireplace. Roof deck will have tables and and expansive views.
