Tower could set new heights for Cathedral Hill. As proposed, the 1481 Post Street tower would rise to a height of 416-feet and become the highest point on Cathedral Hill, as rendered in a view from Alamo Square. In addition to the positive energy created by the 36-stories of 262 new residential condominiums, the creation of ground level neighborhood-serving amenities and enlivened streetscapes will aid in the transformation to a new pedestrian friendly neighborhood streetscape. Augmenting the project with robust open space; the well-lit integrated landscape plans, along with the creation of ground level amenities, will contribute to a walkable environment.
