The Rockwell | 1688 Pine St.

“Full Stack Luxury Living.” – Matt

Completed in 2016, The Rockwell is the result of merging six existing lots and demolishing most of the existing buildings, although most of their historic facades have been preserved. Located in the Van Ness Avenue Corridor, The Rockwell is home to 260 residences. The back (north) side of The Rockwell is adjacent to the neighborhood boundary line for Pacific Heights, which is how the building was originally marketed.

Home sizes at The Rockwell primarily include one-bedroom homes and two-bedroom homes. Building amenities include a roof deck, penthouse level owner’s sky lounge, interior courtyard between the east and west towers, fitness center, and owners’ clubhouse.

    More About the Building

    Rockwell was developed by the same team that completed Marlow in 2014. The architect is Kwan Henmi, Build Group is the general contractor, and Oyster Development is the developer. The project is the result of merging six existing lots and demolishing most of the existing buildings, although most of their historic facades have been preserved.

    In their place, two 13-story towers have risen with about 5,500 square feet of commercial space on the ground floor and one level of below-grade parking with spots for up to 245 vehicles and 141 bicycles.

    Rockwell unit mix:

    • 261 total homes
    • 143 two-bedroom homes
    • 117 one-bedroom homes
    • 1 three-bedroom home

    In addition to being part of the Pine Street Auto Shops Historic district, some of the buildings that were demolished were used to store the personal belongings of Japanese Americans who were sent to forced internment camps during WWII. The Rockwell has signage/material helping explain the historic value of the buildings.

    Rockwell offers 201 parking spaces, with 192 spots provided by parking stackers, six spots provided for handicapped/disabled placard parking and three car-share spots. Also, there are 141 bicycle parking spots. Because the number of homes exceeds the number of available parking spots, some homes do not come with parking spaces.
