The project is targeted for LEED® Gold certification and features 33 market-rate units. Designed by Handel Architects, 288 Pacific blends in seamlessly with the neighborhood’s historic masonry buildings. The building’s L-shaped footprint surrounds the iconic Old Ship Saloon, one of the oldest bars in San Francisco, on the corner of Pacific and Battery Streets.
“288 Pacific will offer unique layouts and remarkable views of downtown San Francisco, the San Francisco Bay and the historic Jackson Square neighborhood,” said Steve Buster, Grosvenor’s Senior Vice President of Development. “Swinerton is one of the most respected contractors in the City and has been an exceptional partner. This milestone is a huge step toward delivering the kind of boutique condominium residences that this dynamic neighborhood has never seen before.”
Amenities at 288 Pacific include high-end finishes and balconies, at-grade parking with car stackers, and bike parking. The ground floor will have two retail spaces.
The project site is on the historic waterfront of San Francisco, and an archeological dig was conducted to examine the site for artifacts. After a 12-week excavation period, a portion of the Arkansas was discovered—a three-masted ship that was abandoned during the Gold Rush and used as a storefront and saloon in the mid-1800s. After documenting this artifact, the City of San Francisco and the San Francisco Maritime Historic Park requested that the Arkansas remain under the project.

Recognized nationally since 1888, Swinerton is the preferred builder and trusted partner in every market it serves—proudly leading with integrity, passion, and excellence.
