The Sutterfield

San Francisco, CA (1999)


The Sutterfield defines luxury high-rise condominium living in San Francisco. The property combines the finest qualities of a small hotel with the benefits of a large-scale, mixed-use property. This 17-story, 164-unit high-rise is located in the Lower Pacific Heights residential neighborhood of San Francisco. It was completed in 1999 at the cost of $45 million.


Close to the City’s cultural center, Union Square, and the numerous restaurants and retailers located in the Van Ness Corridor, The Sutterfield also provides residents with the convenience of a private entry to a 30,000-square foot gourmet market integrated into the development. Capitalizing on a sloping street-to-street lot, The Sutterfield was designed to provide an exclusive residential entrance on Sutter Street, with a separate entry and parking area for the market on Post Street.


The Sutterfield’s lobby features extensive use of warm inlaid wood and stone, reflecting the tasteful appointments and quality craftsmanship found throughout the property. The security/guest services desk, staffed fulltime, and community amenities including a fitness center, spa, and saunas enhance the residential experience. All residents have a deeded parking space in the secured subterranean garage.


Despite its debut in the depths of a real estate recession, The Sutterfield realized sales prices and absorption rates higher than any of its competition. At least one YSA principal participated as design architect, supervising architect and/or senior designer while associated with the architect-of-record for this project.
