Although the Post International project was completed more than 20 years ago, this combination of highrise and townhouses exhibits a modern timelessness that belies its age.
Featuring 72 units, this 13-floor condominium highrise on Cathedral Hill was a ground-up project. One, two and three-bedroom homes were designed to maximize the building’s vistas at the intersection of Post and Gough, with floor-to-ceiling windows offering residents unobstructed views of Russian Hill, the Financial District’s skyline, and the glinting Bay below; private patios, terraces, and balconies create a dialogue between indoor and outdoor areas.
Selected units include wood burning fireplaces and walk-in closets while the lobby below – framed by a porte-cochere entry – features an undulating glass wall that faces the landscaped courtyard, offering a respite from the bustling streets outside.
