The 320-unit building includes a mix of floorplans to rent – ranging from studios to spacious three-bedrooms.

Jasper is the premier residential building in San Francisco to have gigabit wireless, offering the fastest internet service in the city. The building also includes a resident portal that is operated via smartphone through a designated app, allowing for convenient and efficient communication between staff and residents. The porter acts as a personal assistant that can accept deliveries and deliver them directly to tenants’ units while they’re away, and arrange for a range of custom needs including, but not limited to, theatre tickets, dog walking, housekeeping, move-in coordination, and much more.
Jasper combines advanced technology and luxury amenities with intriguing “film noir” inspired elements, with architectural design by local architect Stanley Saitowitz and HKS Architects. Jasper’s dramatic design aesthetic pays homage to the surrounding Rincon Hill neighborhood. Throughout the building, Saitowitz seamlessly blends style and functionality, drawing upon expressive lighting and shadows, stark “camera angles,” and high-contrast elements to create a sense of suspense, surprise and irony. The lobby showcases sleek, dark wood finishes, angular light fixtures, and dramatic cutaway fireplaces. Similarly, the lounge features dark wood flooring and paneling, accented by playful light fixtures. Interior furnishings in black and white color scheme reinforce the film noir motif.
