The Belles Townhomes are Now Available – Seven LEED Platinum Units – Luxury in the Presidio Just North of The Richmond

Tuesday, October 19th, 2010

Well actually, just two of the seven units that make up the Presidio’s new Belles Townhomes are available right now, but you’re only going to need one (most likely) and they’re all pretty much the same. (Except for the westernmost unit – that one might be ever so slightly different.)

[UPDATE: The western- and eastern-most units are a little different than the five in the middle - the ones on the ends have more windows and the westernmost unit lacks a deck, which is a bummer but oh well. The ones available now are middle units.]

So have at it, deets below.

This will be your view from the deck. You can see the Wyman Avenue homes to the left and the old PSHS Hospital / Landmark Apartments to the right. And off in the distance there’s Sutro Tower on the left and some other kind of tower on the right:

Tall and thin windows to match some of the historic homes on Wyman Ave:

Save your pennies and maybe you yourself could live here someday.

All the deets:

“Forest City Raises the Bar in Sustainable Living With Unveiling of Belles Townhomes in Presidio

Distinctive Townhomes are First in San Francisco to Achieve Multifamily LEED Platinum Certification

Two of Seven Apartments Now Available Feature Prototype Energy Saving Dashboard, Solar Power, and Panoramic Roof Decks in a National Park

San Francisco – Forest City Development is setting a new standard in sustainable living with the unveiling of Belles Townhomesin the Presidio of San Francisco. Belles Townhomes are the only newly constructed residential building in the Presidio and the first multi-family residential building in San Francisco to achieve the Green Building Council’s LEED Platinum certification.

“Green building and green technology dominate this design and allow residents to stay connected to the Presidio’s natural setting and live with less environmental impact,” said Alexa Arena, vice president of Forest City-San Francisco.

The first two of the seven attached three-story three-bedroom contemporary townhomes are now available to lease. Each has a patio at ground level overlooking the green, a terrace at the main living level off the living room, a panoramic roof deck, a garage and private entrances from the street totaling 2,100 square feet of modern living space.”

Ever more deets, after the jump.

Introducing the Belles Townhomes – Seven LEED Platinum Units – Luxury in the Presidio Just North of The Richmond

So maybe you want to move into the Presidio but you don’t like all the old construction. Well, now’s your chance, cause the new Belles Townhomes from Forest City in the Public Health Service District are the only new construction resdences you’ll find in the Presidio.

These units are well fitted out, to a higher level than what you’ll find at the more suburban Wyman residences to the west and the more youthful (and also more empty-nester, I’d guess) Landmark Apartments to the east. The pricing still hasn’t been set, AFAIK, but it’s likely to be stratospheric what with the engaged living and all.

This will be your view from the deck. You can see the Wyman Avenue homes to the left and the old PSHS Hospital / Landmark Apartments to the right. And off in the distance there’s Sutro Tower on the left and some other kind of tower on the right:
