Tishman Speyer Unveils MIRA, a Visionary High-Rise Community With Shape-Shifting Architecture


Located Steps from the Embarcadero, the Studio Gang-Designed Building
in San Francisco Has Launched its Website and Interest List

MIRA, the newest community of luxury condominium residences developed by
Tishman Speyer, has been unveiled. Prospective buyers are now able to
register their interest on the project's new website. Located one block
from the Embarcadero at 280 Spear Street at the corner of Spear and
Folsom, MIRA is designed by award-winning architecture practice Studio
Gang and will feature a distinctive, dynamic tower with large bay
windows spiraling up the façade to offer sweeping views of San Francisco
Bay, the Bay Bridge, and the city skyline.

"Reinterpreting the classic bay windows of San Francisco, our design
amplifies the dynamic quality of the neighborhood," says Jeanne Gang,
founding principal of Studio Gang. "Spiraling all the way up this
400-foot tower, bay windows create unique spaces in every residence that
offer fresh air, expansive views, and changing qualities of light
throughout the day."

The 40-story MIRA will comprise a broad mix of 392 one-, two- and
three-bedroom condominiums, townhouses, and penthouses. MIRA's Sales
Gallery will open this Fall, with occupancy slated for Fall 2019. Sales
at MIRA will be represented by Polaris Pacific, the West Coast leader in
high-density real estate sales and marketing.

"With construction of MIRA well underway, we're getting closer each day
to delivering this stunning new community for the benefit of the
flourishing Transbay neighborhood," says Carl Shannon, Senior Managing
Director at Tishman Speyer. "We're enthusiastic to have the opportunity
to once again enhance San Francisco by bringing an exceptional,
world-class architect's vision to the skyline with an innovative,
perspective-shifting tower."

When completed, MIRA will feature amenities such as a courtyard, rooftop
deck, private dining room, club lounge, a Jay Wright-designed fitness
center, children's playroom, business and conference center, dog washing
station, valet parking for 340 cars with electric vehicle charging
stations, parking for 150 bicycles, and over 10,000 square feet of
retail at street level. Inside, bay windows in every residence offer
sweeping views and create a dynamic façade that will transform the
neighborhood with Studio Gang's groundbreaking, forward-thinking

Located in the emerging Transbay neighborhood where SoMa meets the
Embarcadero, MIRA will offer convenient access to the waterfront, the
new Salesforce Park and Transbay Transit Terminal, and a wide array of
retailers, nightlife, restaurants, transportation options, and sports
and entertainment venues. The MIRA community will contribute to the
dynamic neighborhood created by Tishman Speyer's nearby Infinity and
LUMINA projects. The site was previously known as Block One of the
Transbay Redevelopment Plan. For more information and to register for
