It's not uncommon for luxury buildings like 8th + Hope in Downtown's Financial District to have a rooftop entertainment space with a play area for dogs, two gyms, a spa, a catering kitchen, a screening room—all at the disposal of the residents—so it has them all, executed in thoughtful ways with fancy finishes. But one thing developers Wood Partners are hoping will set the complex apart from other similar luxury buildings is 8th + Hope's street-level space for culture at its Ground Floor Project. The GFP will serve as the arts component of the fancy building's communal spaces, hosting events like film screenings and cycling art installations. It opened with an exhibit about construction by local artist Bettina Hubby.
But, like we said, the 22-story 8th + Hope has all the lavish amenities that can be expected at fancy, new apartment buildings: a pool and spa in an outdoor area with cabanas and barbecues, a rooftop with fireplaces and lounge seating, a "club room" with a projection TV (which recently hosted a GFP film screening), a shuttle to and from the building to any Downtown location, pet-walking, and round-the-clock concierge services are all standard.
Each of 8th + Hope's 290 units have a balcony (which even on the grayest days can offer up some great views of Downtown), polished concrete ceilings, floor-to-ceiling windows, keyless entry, washers and dryers, quartz countertops, and stainless steel kitchen appliances. The one-bedrooms, which range from 707 to 961 square feet, start at $2,600. The two-bedrooms start at $3,800 and run from 1,135 to 1,634 square feet. The largest floor plan has two and a half bedrooms and three bathrooms and starts at $6,800. (See floorplans and pricing at 8th + Hope's site.) Units are leasing now.
