Jay Paul Company is behind one of the most stunning contributions to the Bay Area’s skyline: the San Francisco luxury condos at 181 Fremont. As Janette D’Elia, Jay Paul’s chief operating officer, recently explained to San Francisco Business Times, 181 Fremont is one aspect of a revitalization of the Transbay District that “has been a vision of the city for many, many years and has really shifted the focus from the traditional Financial District to SoMa.” The 802 foot tall tower is home to a unique mix of 67 luxury homes and 436,000 square feet of office space, the latter of which will be used as Facebook’s first San Francisco office. The building will also house an array of unique features geared toward both safety and entertainment, including an earthquake-ready elevator system, a pedestrian path connecting the building to Salesforce Transit Center’s five-acre rooftop park, open air decks 500 in the sky exclusive for residential use, and a distinctive exoskeleton that reinforces the building’s strength. A flexible, strategic approach has made it all possible, according to D’Elia: “You can’t rush it.
