55 Ninth Street San Francisco, CA 94103 United States

San Francisco apartments. Come Alive.

Live like you want -- that's our anthem.

AVA is a new living space in the energy of Mid Market – where bars and clubs converge with the opera and food trucks, where sushi meets pizza and music collides with performing arts. Oh yeah, and we're just steps away from all modes of transportation including BART and the Facebook and Google shuttles.

At AVA 55 Ninth, open-concept studio, 1 & 2 bedroom apartments feature urban inspired design that extends beyond your walls to social spaces to connect, chill and play. There's the Lounge that spills out onto a huge terrace with flat screens, grills, outdoor dining, work pods, and lots of comfy seating for hanging out with friends.

We're smoke free. Eco friendly. And pet friendly too (even big dogs). Plus the awesome fitness center, DIY work space and a bike shop with storage will make you want to dive in and make it yours.

We don't want to tell you how to live, but you might want to check out AVA at 55 Ninth. Be the first to know of any updates on our rad apartments by clicking the Contact Us button above right now. Read More
