Twisty Condo Tower on Spear Street Almost Complete

Two years ago in 2017, the condo tower on Spear and Folsom Streets broke ground.

It’s called Mira, which means “to look” in Spanish, located on 280 Spear Street (and 160 Folsom St) – yes, two addresses. It is one of the new developments in San Francisco’s Transbay District, right on the waterfront.

Mira was designed to reach 40 stories, and 400 feet in the air in a structure that will house 392 highly sought-after condos. Residents will enjoy expansive water views as each unit was designed to provide a “corner-unit feel”, with zero obstructions from enjoying stunning Bay views.

“Spiraling all the way up this 400-foot tower, bay windows create unique spaces in every residence that offer fresh air, expansive views and changing qualities of light throughout the day,” said Jeanne Gang, founding principal of Studio Gang – the architect of the development project.

Mira is located in South of Market, near downtown and conveniently close to jobs, public transit, entertainment, restaurants, and everything you need in a metropolitan city. Just a few blocks from Mira is the Salesforce Transit Center and Park, which is the central hub to the burgeoning Transbay District.

The mixed-use condo tower includes six townhomes that will face Clementina Street on the north side of the building, and about 10,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space mostly lining Folsom Street.

Building amenities include a courtyard, rooftop deck, private dining room, club lounge, gym, children’s playroom, business and conference center, dog-washing station, valet parking, electric vehicle charging stations and bike parking.

Construction has progressed nicely and its distinctive façade almost complete.

With a few more days until the final touches are done, Tishman Speyer is now working on having the tower ready for occupancy, and ready with its first move-ins by the end of this year, followed by the adjacent mid-rise buildings and overall development of 392 units on Transbay Block 1.
