Union House

From Abandoned Gas Station to Luxury Condos: Union House is the biggest development SFO’s Russian Hill neighborhood has in 20 years

From 2009 to 2017, an abandoned Chevron gas station sat on the corner of Union Street and Van Ness Avenue in San Francisco’s Russian Hill neighborhood. Then in 2017, that gas station was knocked down so crews could replace it with the largest development in the Russian Hill neighborhood in the last 20 years: Union House, a luxury, mid-rise condo-complex. The seven-story building is 95,000-sf in total with 41-units, as well as over 4,000-sf of retail space on the ground floor. The building hosts 1-, 2- and 3-bedroom condos and offers townhomes and penthouses, too. For parking, the building has a 15,000-sf below-grade garage capable of storing 31-vehicles in its five mechanized stackers, along with residents’ bikes in a locked storage space. DCI worked with Nibbi Concrete when designing the structure of the building, which led to a smooth implementation of designs during construction.
