SAN FRANCISCO | 390 First St ("Modera") | 14 FL | Approx. 140 FT

390 First Street is a 14-story, 180 unit apartment community that sits at a key hilltop intersection in the Rincon Hill neighborhood of San Francisco. The project, along with the Sailors’ Union of the Pacific building across First Street, bookends a major departure gateway from San Francisco to the Bay Bridge. Like the Sailors’ Union, the building massing is composed of an assemblage of discrete masses. The stepped 5 to 7 story podium fronting Lansing, Harrison and First Streets is clad in precast concrete, again in acknowledgement of the Sailors’ Union. It employs projecting bay windows, a cornice, and deeply inset openings. The light and glassy 14 story tower faces First Street, a section of it extending to ground and incorporating the main entry. The Lansing Street frontage faces the narrow pedestrian/auto “shared street,” with a smaller scale residential focus employing townhouse-style stoops in a manner sympathetic to traditional San Francisco residential architecture.
