While the two buildings have very little in common other than the fact that they are both being built in 2014 and their scaffolding is coming down, in this blog post we’ve given you a two for one special!
Over in Cow Hollow, The Amero still has scaffolding up on the Filbert side of things but the wraps have come off on the Van Ness side, revealing a rather conservative design ethos that probably won’t win any awards but also is fairly unlikely to raise the hackles of anyone. Although, let’s face it – if you live in San Francisco you seem to have some duty to object to the look of any new building.
While the Amero design aesthetic may be mellow, over in the Inner Mission the design of Vida SF is anything but subtle. The building facade features a multitude of colors and panels of glass that alternate between pivoting towards or away from the building in a vertical design. When it’s time to do the rendering vs. reality on Vida, I’d say the renderings got it pretty darn accurate.
We are not the listing agents for either of these buildings, but we do offer buyers independent representation at new and existing construction across San Francisco. The Amero is listed by the fine team at the Mark Co, while the equally fine team of Polaris Pacific represents the developer of Vida.
What are your thoughts on the look and feel of these two new additions to their respective San Francisco neighborhoods? We’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments below, on our facebook page, or on twitter.
