San Francisco map

It’s hard not be envious of San Francisco; as a city they seem to be more confident in their architectural and urban planning decisions than their neighbors to the north. They replaced their version of the Seattle Viaduct with the highly praised Embarcadero and while most cities are waiting in line to get their Frank Gehry, San Francisco has surpassed us all with the de Young Museum by Herzog & de Meuron and the soon to be completed Academy of Sciences by Renzo Piano. San Francisco has also been building a respectable collection of modern multi-dwellings since the mid-nineties. Today’s blog entry looks at a few of San Francisco’s noteworthy condominium & apartment projects. For additional recommendations on San Francisco visit The Modern List.
