Fremont & Folsom Luxury Apartment Building 'Solaire' Starts Leasing TomorrowRenderings: Solaire

The Transbay neighborhood is growing up. While trouble importing materials last winter delayed many high-rises in the neighborhood, Solaire—the 32-story residential tower and townhouses at 299 Fremont—is set to begin pre-leasing its 409 units tomorrow.

As Curbed pointed out this morning, 18 of the units are currently listed online with rents ranging from $2,880-$3,315/month for a studio to $7,964/month for a two-bedroom with two-and-a-half bathrooms. Move-in for this first batch of residents is slated for as early as May 14th.

Perhaps the most impressive amenity for new residents is the 11 different outdoor spaces, including a ground-level interior courtyard, a rooftop sundeck, a terrace on the seventh floor with a hot tub and grills, and communal "sky decks" on every third floor.

Inside their units, residents will have floor-to-ceiling windows, washer/dryers and stainless steel appliances paired with quartz countertops and more. And if they need even more indoor space, there's a game room, a fitness center and more on the seventh floor.

Developer Golub & Co. broke ground on the project—just steps from the future Transbay Transit Center—in late 2013. As for their contribution to the city's affordable housing stock, Mercy Housing is preparing to construct 120 affordable units right behind Solaire at 255 Fremont. The units will be reserved for households making 50-60 percent of the Area Median Income.
