The nine new residences offer high-end, modern amenities and boast a stellar location mere blocks from luxury shops and sprawling green spaces.
A meal from Feastin
Restaurant owners Sebastiaan Van De Rijt and Hannah Wagner of Bamboo Asia needed to adapt their business model to survive the times. Together, they developed Feastin, a delivery service that connects San Francisco residents with restaurants to bring prepared dishes, meal kits, groceries and drinks right to your door. Whether you’re looking to host a date night or family barbecue, Feastin is the premier way to support local restaurants while staying safe at home.
David Ireland House
After a six-month closure, The David Ireland House has reopened for free, socially distanced tours. The late Ireland, a widely celebrated conceptual artist, designed his intriguing home on the corner of Capp and 20th streets. Visitors can browse the preserved residence to explore the artist’s private world, along with an exhibition of works by his close friend Felipe Dulzaides.
The cover of Chinatown Pretty
Chinatown Pretty (Chronicle Books) the new book by Andria Lo and Valerie Luu, documents the colorful and trendsetting styles of the senior population of six Chinatowns across the U.S. and Canada, including San Francisco’s. Featuring 113 seniors, the book documents the stunning culture of Chinatown fashion, where influence is drawn from every facet of the fashion world.
Aquatalia’s new shop
Aquatalia opened its first West Coast storefront on The Upper Echelon stretch of Fillmore Street in Pacific Heights. “The new shop sits among a community that we feel reflects Aquatalia’s DNA: a refined blend of contemporary and classic,” says Ron Ventricelli, president of North America at Global Brands Group. Bay Area customers can now shop the full collection of women’s and men’s shoes, outerwear and select accessories in person.
