More About the Building

The Watermark is a 22-story building with beautiful finishes and amenities, known for the panoramic views from its residences. It is just steps from the Embarcadero, and many of the homes feature spectacular Bay views from the large floor-to-ceiling windows found in many homes throughout the building.

The Watermark offers a staffed front desk and concierge services and has an outdoor heated lap pool and barbeque area off of the 4th floor for the enjoyment of residents. There is also a fitness center in the building.

The Watermark was developed on Seawall Lot 330 (SWL 330) and the parking lot that surrounds the building, as well as the empty pier across the Embarcadero are both sites that have been eyed for future development, so if you buy at the Watermark you should expect future construction and the possibility that views may be blocked or altered based on future development.

Residents at the Watermark have easy access to Muni with a light rail stop on the Embarcadero @ Folsom Street. Car commuters are within a short distance of interstates 280 and 101. The Ferry Building, AT&T Park, the Embarcadero, Rincon Hill dog park, and the Bay Bridge are all within a short distance from the front steps of The Watermark.
