Rockwell will offer in their place two 13-story towers with about 5,500 square feet of commercial space on the ground floor and one level of below-grade parking with spots for up to 245 vehicles and 141 bicycles.

Rockwell was developed by the same team that completed Marlow in 2014. The architect is Kwan Henmi, Build Group is the general contractor and Oyster Development is the developer. The project is the result of merging six existing lots and demolishing most of the existing buildings, although most of their historic facades will be preserved.
In their place will rise two 13-story towers with about 5,500 square feet of commercial space on the ground floor and one level of below-grade parking with spots for up to 245 vehicles and 141 bicycles.
Rockwell Unit Mix:
In addition to being part of the Pine Street Auto Shops Historic district, some of the buildings being demolished were used to store the personal belongings of Japanese Americans who were sent to forced internment camps during WWII. The final development will have signage/material helping explain the historic value of the buildings.
Construction was recently ocmplete, and move-ins began in late Summer of 2016, depending on the home’s location in the development.
The sales office opened in April 2015, and as of December 2016 the project is over 96% sold. Prices have gone up over the many releases; give us a call for details.
Drawings filed with the city indicate plans for 201 parking spaces, with 192 spots provided by parking stackers, six spots provided for handicapped/disabled placard parking and three car-share spots. In addition, plans specify room for 141 bicycle parking spots. Because the number of homes exceeds the number of available parking spots, some homes will not come with parking spaces.
Drawings indicate plans for landscaped outdoor amenities including roof decks, as well as an interior courtyard between the east and west towers, a fitness center, and owners’ lounge.
Documents filed with city agencies indicate that Oyster Development will meet the BMR requirement by building 31 on-site BMR homes, 14 of which will be two-bedroom homes and 17 of which will be one-bedroom homes.
The developer has selected the fine team at Polaris Pacific to provide exclusive developer representation. We provide buyers with independent representation at new and recently built homes across the city of San Francisco.
