developed by tishman speyer, MIRA will comprise a mix of 392 one-, two-, and three-bedroom condominiums, townhouses, and penthouses. ‘reinterpreting the classic bay windows of san francisco, our design amplifies the dynamic quality of the neighborhood,’ explains 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.’

MIRA launched its sales gallery in november 2018 and released its first 32 homes to market. prospective buyers can now make appointments to preview the homes and tour the sales gallery’s fully furnished model home vignette at 163 main street, one block from the construction site. ‘we have designed the homes at MIRA to be a seamless extension of the architecture, and I am excited to share those interior spaces with the opening of the new sales gallery,’ gang continues.
