With a distinct nautical look and a location across the Embarcadero from San Francisco Bay, The Portside condo buildings at 38 Bryant and 403 Main sport rounded corners, railings reminiscent of a cruise ship, and porthole-type accent windows. Portside I (38 Bryant) was built in 1994 and Portside II (403 Main) followed in 1997.
Studios are approximately 480-620 square feet; one-bedroom homes are approximately 665-1,000 square feet; two-bedroom homes range in size from just under 1,000 square feet to about 1,200 square feet; and the few three-bedroom homes measure just under 1,400 square feet.
Amenities shared between both buildings include two fitness centers (one in each building), an outdoor pool, spa and pool deck. Most homes have extra storage within the building, and all have access to leased parking in a shared garage. Optional valet service is available.
The South Beach area has grown up around the Portside since the 1990s, with a revitalized Embarcadero, the Ferry Building and AT&T Park (home of the World Series winning San Francisco Giants) all a short distance away. Commuters have quick and easy access to MUNI on the Embarcadero, Caltrain at 4th & King Streets and BART on Market Street. Car commuters can reach 280, 101 and the Bay Bridge within a few blocks of home.
