For future (and perhaps current) reference, let’s get the facts straight with regard to the first tower of One Rincon Hill. The tower will rise fifty-five (55) stories above grade (not including the rooftop stabilizing water tank) with five (5) levels of parking below.
Floors are numbered one (1) through sixty (60) with the first level of underground parking being floor number one. The ground level lobby is located on floor number six (6), floor number seven (7) houses building amenities, and residences are located on floors eight (8) through sixty (60).
The bad news: If you’re looking to live ten stories above the top of the hill, you’ll actually want to find a condo on floor fifteen (15). The good news: If you should somehow crash through a window on the “sixth floor,” you won’t have far to fall.
UPDATE (3/22): While we focus on the facts, a “plugged in” reader focuses on an explanation. “I spoke with One Rincon today and they explained their reasoning behind the flooring scheme. One person’s [comment] was correct. [Actually, two.] The floors in tower one and tower two match up with each other. Since the lot is on a hill, tower two’s first floor lines up with the street at Harrison and Fremont.
