Sleek, streamlined, and sophisticated, the award-winning 8 Octavia stands tall at the corner of Market Street and Octavia Boulevard as the gateway to Hayes Valley from the 101 freeway. Aptly referred to as an urban oasis in the sky, 8 Octavia offers serenity and solitude among a bustling street with its concrete and glass exterior with automated window louvre systems in each unit. This unique and bold building is the result of nearly a decade of design and development by Stanley Saitowitz of Natoma Architects, and DDG and DM Development, as well as landscaping by Marta Fry Landscape Associates.
Each unit in this 8 story building features a minimalist and open floorplan, floor-to-ceiling window walls with built-in and automated privacy systems, exposed architechtural concrete ceilings and walls, and gorgeous 7.5″ wide Austrian white oak wood flooring. Top of the line Bosch appliances, high-end SieMatic kitchen cabinets, and white Corian countertops complete the contemporary aesthetic. Many condos feature a unique, broad, and bright view of Hayes Valley that can be transformed to create a quiet and peaceful sanctuary at the push of a button with the automated louvre system, which transforms the exterior of the building into an ever-evolving facade.
In addition to the fantastic unit features, the building and neighborhood offer several great amenities. A large, landscaped rooftop lounge with panoramic skyline views is a great place to spend time entertaining outdoors. Webpass building-wide internet service, keyless entry, virtual doorman, and security features in-house, plus nightlife, parks, restaurants, and much more nearby!
