Cadet Heats the Best High-Rise in San Francisco

3 min read

Our heaters are used in all kinds of projects both in single family homes and multifamily properties. It's not everyday that one of those projects gets national recognition. In downtown San Francisco, a vacant lot originally slated to be an office complex was later redesigned as a 273-apartment building with open floor plans, indoor and outdoor amenities and Cadet heaters. That complex, AVA 55 Ninth, which just so happens to sit across the street from Twitter headquarters, was recently named the Best High-Rise Apartment by the National Association of Home Builders. The project was designed by Solomon Cordwell Buenz architect firm, with interior design by Degen & Degen and developed by AvalonBay Communities.

AvalonBay senior development director Joe Kirchofer told a major part of the building's concept is connecting locals with residents. That's why the ground floor features a lounge and fitness center that open to an outdoor terrace. The lobby connects directly to the cafe. “All spaces in the building are designed to be activated and to bring people together, enhancing the connections among our residents and with the broader community,” Kirchofer told the publication. The project includes more than 700 Cadet Com-Pak heaters in the apartment bedrooms and living/kitchen areas. Congratulations to the designers and developers on this great looking project.
