Geometric complexity in the heart of San Francisco

In the newest of luxury condominiums from Tishman Speyer, MIRA tower boasts creative designs and a distinctive layout throughout the property.

Known for some of New York’s most unique sites, they’ve taken their vision and talents to luxury condominium homes that are fresh and forward-thinking—offering residents an opportunity to own a part of an architecturally iconic building in San Francisco.

This community-inspired architecture includes a 40-floor luxury tower of residences, with the ‘Panorama Collection’ of penthouse homes offering stunning views coupled with expansive floor plans sitting atop the site.

Just steps from the entertainment heart of the city, MIRA delivers convenient access to San Francisco’s buzzing nightlife and wealth of extracurricular activities including waterfront recreation, and restaurants, iconic landmarks, and local sports and entertainment venues. For those that want to travel a little further – valeted and secure underground parking is available and the building is situated within walking distance of myriad transportation alternatives.

To realise the geometric complexity of the project’s dynamic, elite urban architecture firm Urban Gang designed a ‘white curtain wall’. To achieve this, a modular façade system consisting of families of units was constructed that repeats every 11 floors. This feat of engineering, adapted from the aerospace industry, focuses on achieving the exceptionally smooth and clean look of the curtain wall’s Italian-made white panels.

The curtain wall, constructed with large bay windows twisting up the building’s façade is a part of a distinctive, spiralling design that transforms San Francisco’s skyline and offering residents sweeping views of San Francisco Bay, the Bay Bridge, and the City. “Reinterpreting the classic bay windows of San Francisco, our design amplifies the dynamic quality of the neighbourhood,” says Jeanne Gang, founding principal of Studio Gang. “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.”
