The strikingly beautiful clock tower adjacent to the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge— a longtime fixture on the San Francisco skyline—had stood vacant for years. But McKenzie, Rose & Holliday Development recognized its potential and envisioned The Clocktower, a live/work community in the heart of a revitalized South of Market district. The three-building property metamorphosed into 127 units, three interior courtyards, and a rooftop garden. Despite a soft real-estate market and the impact of the Bay Area recession, all of the units sold within twelve months.
