At the extreme, the eight three-bedroom units across the 41st and 42nd floors of LUMINA’s Tower B could be combined into one mega-duplex measuring over 20,000 square feet, while the four three-bedroom units atop the 37-story Tower D could become a single 9,000-square-foot penthouse, “depending on market demand.”
A merger of fewer units is a possibility as well. But if the mega-duplex materialized, it would become the largest residence in San Francisco, surpassing the 17,000-square-foot penthouse atop the St. Regis at 188 Minna, which itself was a merger of three units and sold for a record-setting $28 million in 2011, having been foreclosed upon earlier that year and listed for $70 million in 2008.
Tishman is also exploring the possibility of adding private roof decks for the penthouse units atop LUMINA’s towers.
And according to a recently drafted letter from San Francisco’s Zoning Administrator to Tishman’s counsel, the roof decks and select unit mergers would generally conform with the plans for the 201 Folsom Street development as originally approved (i.e., they would likely be approved as well).
So if you’re in the market for a “24-bedroom” penthouse, or even a more modest “12-bedroom” unit, stay tuned and do let us know.
UPDATE: A potential 15,000-square-foot duplex atop Tower B has been priced at $49 million.
