Recently the lobby of a San Francisco condominium building underwent a major facelift, transforming it from a tired space with fussy style into a sleek reception area that celebrates the building’s origins. What makes this noteworthy to Eichler lovers is that the building is the iconic Eichler Summit at 999 Green Street.
Built by Joseph Eichler in the mid 1960s, The Summit is a 32-story luxury condominium high-rise that sits atop the prestigious Russian Hill in San Francisco. Many homes at 999 Green Street are multi-million dollar properties with unparalleled views of the Bay and San Francisco cityscape. While residents have kept up with the times, and units reflect the luxury and contemporary style that goes with the address and the views, the public space had become dated.
After 7 months of construction, the new Eichler Summit lobby is finished. Designer David Oldroyd of ODADA created the modern design that merges the Mid-Century intentions of the space with 21st Century style. The result is a clean, contemporary space (that comes complete with a 24-hour staff) worthy of being called an Eichler.
