COMING SOON: 735 Clementina Street, San Francisco, California

A Stunning Urban Oasis with Design, Scale and Luxury

Set on a quiet, well-maintained one-way lane, 735 Clementina is a thoughtfully crafted and designed warehouse property with possibilities. Currently zoned as a mixed commercial space with a change-of-use application in for residential use, 735 is a dramatic space with an open layout, with an exclusive, secluded rooftop outdoor space, smart-building features and ecological touches like solar panels, and grey water capture systems.  

Previously used as a large, open and captivating 2-level, 2-bed, 2-bath luxury home, 735 Clementina has more than 1,900 sqft of indoor living space (2,274 sqft total interior space, per appraiser) + nearly 1,200 sqft of private outdoor space  in the firm of its rooftop drought-tolerant garden + upper sun deck that has skyline views.

Rebuilt and re-engineered from its basic commercial shell space, 735  was conceived of being a property you would see in a magazine or online — a smart and green property with wide-open space in the middle of an urban setting that would also be bathed in sunlight as well as being private, quiet and secure at the same time.  

735 meets that vision with a massive 35-foot long skylight, equipped with power shades with motorized operation (4 panes that open for ventilation, under 10- and 13-foot tall ceilings of reclaimed wood timber posts and joists with large, warehouse windows overlooking Clementina Street. 

735 stays warm thanks to the natural sunlight from the skylight of course but also thanks to solar-heated radiant floor heat from its concrete floors. There are also solar power panels that feed power back into the grid, keeping utility costs low. The living rooftop garden uses grey water that is captured from a 550-gallon reclamation system

Other built-in features include a massive wall of speakers, hardwire ethernet, smart home controls, and customizable track lighting throughout. 

There is also a commercial-grade, premium kitchen with large top-line appliances (gas range, dishwasher, glassdoor commercial-grade refrigerator), stainless countertops, a massive, soapstone mobile kitchen island and pantry closet. 

Two, en suite sleeping areas with Hansgrohe fixtures, in-wall toilets, with the primary featuring a two-person steam shower, large soaking tub and large, walk-in closet with a massive, reclaimed wood barn door.

The Green Space.

 The flow of the design came easily, the post industrial architecture of the house seemed best complemented by bold color. The previous owners had a native garden, based on this, I chose plants with similar requirements. The garden serves the dual purpose of form and function as it is also habitat for wildlife and provides food for polinators.

The Zoning.

“Residential Enclave-Mixed Districts (RED-MX) encompass some of the clusters of low-scale, medium density, predominantly residential neighborhoods located along the narrow side streets of the Western SoMa area. Many parcels in these residential enclaves are underdeveloped and represent opportunities for new residential and low-intensity commercial uses.
While residential uses are encouraged throughout these districts, group housing is limited, and student housing and single-room-occupancy units are prohibited. Small-scale retail, restaurants, arts activities, and other commercial uses are principally permitted to create the potential for more active, mixed use alleys. Some automobile-related and production, distribution, and repair uses are also permitted with limitations. Existing commercial activities in nonresidential structures may continue as nonconforming uses subject to the termination requirements of Article 1.7.”  For more, see here.

  • The current owners have submitted an application with the Planning Department to change the designation to a residential use. That application has been under review for a while now with some final steps that need to be completed before the change is accepted. A future owner can choose to complete the process if they want to use the space as a residence or choose keep the current commercial use — more information, including contact information for the use/permit processional the sellers retained in this matter, can be made available upon request.
