325 Fremont's exterior expression was a new take on the industrial components of the nearby Bay Bridge.

Located in the heart of the Transbay Transit District, 325 Fremont is a boutique high-rise development designed to contain roughly 118 units ranging from studios to 1- and 2-bedrooms units. The 25-story tower was to include two levels of car-stacker parking below grade.

The tower floorplate is small, creating a tall, slender form on a small parcel of land. The architectural expression of the exterior was inspired by the imagery of the western span of the Bay Bridge. Composed of a perforated silvery metal exterior panel cladding system, with accents of silvery-blue glass and cable-rail lined balconies, the façade’s coloration and textures reflect the character of the bridge’s mechanics and assemblage of parts. At the high roof, the exterior perforated metal façade extends 30 feet above an outdoor residence viewing terrace with incredible views looking back to the city’s financial center and the elegant eastern span of the Bay Bridge.
