City View at METREON is at the center of the city—and on top of it all. Floor-to-ceiling windows provide an unobstructed view of the San Francisco cityscape from the Bay Bridge to the beautiful Yerba Buena Gardens. And the inside is just as breathtaking, with a modern, luxe interior that opens to an expansive garden terrace.
