The Infinity stands out as a success even in challenging economic times
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) January 29, 2009
One of San Francisco's most highly-anticipated luxury urban developments, Tower II at The Infinity, opens to the public on Saturday, February 7, 2009 following strong sales of homes in The Infinity's first phase. Located just one block from the Embarcadero waterfront, The Infinity's second tower features 285 new condominium residences with distinctive design by famed architect Bernardo Fort-Brescia and local firm Heller Manus, breathtaking bay and city views and luxurious amenities at a competitive price point - starting from the mid $500,000s.
The release of Tower II comes with 292 homes closed in the project's 365-unit first phase just one year after opening in February 2008. The Infinity has closed an average of 26 homes per month since opening and also recorded the highest sales absorption in San Francisco in Q4 of 2008. The success has continued into 2009 with The Infinity signing 20 new contracts in the past 30 days. First move-ins are scheduled for April 2009.
"The Infinity stands out as a success even in challenging economic times," said Carl Shannon, managing director of Tishman Speyer in the Bay Area. "Sales in Phase I have been consistently strong and we're on track to move new homeowners into Tower II in April 2009. The Infinity's success is a testament to the fact that people want to buy a well-designed home with exceptional amenities in one of the most desirable locations in San Francisco."
Located one block from the Embarcadero, Tower II of The Infinity rises 42 stories to provide unparalleled views of the San Francisco Bay and city. Celebrated globally for his iconic architecture, architect Bernardo Fort-Brescia of Arquitectonica has paired open, modern plans with refined materials to create a striking urban landmark. Residences at The Infinity feature floor-to-ceiling curved glass windows, which open each home to the surrounding sky and Bay. Tower II offers one, two and three-bedroom homes - including four penthouses and six two-story homes. Most homes feature nine-foot ceilings, Bosch, Thermador and Viking appliances, climate control and walk-in closets. Select residences also feature foyer entrances, separate office areas, sky terraces, Poggenpohl cabinets, private master bedroom suites and master baths with double vanities.
Located at the corner of Spear and Folsom streets in San Francisco, The Infinity is situated within easy walking distance to destination dining, shopping and cultural attractions in downtown San Francisco, South Beach, SoMA and along The Embarcadero. The Infinity also offers convenient access to transportation, including the I-80, I-101 and I-280 highways, BART and MUNI.
Residents have access to luxurious amenities, including: on-site concierge available seven days a week; 5,000 square foot state-of-the-art fitness center; 75-foot lap pool featuring an intricately-designed mosaic wall and shimmering natural light from skylights above, spa-like facilities with private treatment room and saunas; theatre-style private screening room; spacious club lounge featuring catering bar and kitchen for private parties and everyday enjoyment; 24-hour business center and conference facilities; outdoor courtyard featuring a soothing waterwall, seating terraces and Japanese maple and honey locust trees; and gated parking with a deeded space for every residence.
