More About the Building

The Artani is an eight-story mid-rise building with 52 homes and a shared rooftop deck with, we understand, the air rights above the building to the south secured in order to preserve views joined the neighborhood in 2009. Life at The Artani means you are just steps from an incredible amount of San Francisco activities. From the dome of SF City Hall to the main branch of the San Francisco public library, living at 818 Van Ness puts you within a short walk of numerous SF destinations including Civic Center Plaza, the Asian Art Museum, the Superior Courthouse, the San Francisco Public Library, San Francisco Opera, Ballet, and the Symphony, to name just a few.

Homes at The Artani feature a contemporary exterior of stone and the maximum amount of glass allowed under city codes. The central location of The Artani means that it is steps away from the Civic Center, and provides relatively easy access to the North Bay, East Bay and South Bay/Silicon Valley. Homes at 818 Van Ness are light and spacious with highly functional floor plans.
