SAN FRANCISCO—Some multifamily communities are adding touchless features and some had the foresight to include those features in the design process well before COVID was a reality. One of these developments is Presidio Bay’s 38-unit The Quinn, starting in the $800,000s, which is set to begin selling in early 2021. The multifamily property will include a wide array of special tech-, sustainability- and wellness-driven amenities, along with unique community spaces.

“Really when we looked at the site’s hustle and bustle, we saw opportunities and COVID makes these even more appealing,” Cyrus Sanandaji, managing director of Presidio Bay, tells “It’s a mid-block site fronting Rodgers and 8th Street near Pinterest with unique physical aspects, i.e. walk-up units with front yards. Every unit facing Rodgers has a large deck and unobstructed views of San Francisco. And, units on 8th Street are looking at Sutro Tower.”
