Coterie Cathedral Hill replaces a dated news headquarters building with modern senior residences and townhomes.

Coterie Cathedral Hill is a new 209-unit senior living building located in San Francisco’s Cathedral Hill neighborhood along the upcoming Van Ness Transit Corridor. The project replaces the former KRON4 News Headquarters building that previously occupied the site.

The 13-story building includes 7,000 sq. ft. of ground floor retail to activate Van Ness Avenue, while around the corner on Myrtle Street, the main entrance has been set back from the street into a landscaped plaza. A series of new low-scale townhomes address the Myrtle Flats townhomes across the street; these historic homes date back to the early 1900's. Further revitalizing Myrtle Street will be new street trees, decorative pavers, upgraded lighting, enhanced planting strips and concrete seat-wall elements for pedestrians.

The building site slopes upward from Van Ness Avenue, and the building volumes above have been sized to respect the change in gradient. The largest volumes face Van Ness, with a singular glass tower holding the corner at Van Ness and O'Farrell Street and framed in precast. Setbacks and carve outs created opportunities for multiple landscaped courtyards, terraces, and a pool deck totaling over 17,000 sq. ft.
