NEMA, also known as Tenth and Market, is a 754-unit luxury residential apartment complex in the Mid-Market neighborhood of San Francisco, California, United States. across the street from Twitter's corporate headquarters. The complex consists of a 19-story, 220-foot (67 m) tower at Jessie and Tenth Streets and a 35-story, 352-foot (107 m) tower at Market and Tenth Streets, connected by a nine story podium along Tenth Street.[4]


The developers of NEMA bought the property in 2006, which then was the site of a vacant office building.[5] Originally designed by Heller Manus as 719 residential condominiums,[6] the project site was cleared for development in 2007. With the onset of the 2008 financial crisis, developer Crescent Heights converted the project to apartments,[7] but the site remained a vacant hole in the ground for four years.[8] In July 2009, the developers received approval to increase the dwelling unit count by 35 to 754.[4] After being redesigned by Handel Architects, construction on the project began on November 1, 2011.[9]

In 2013, the building was given the name "NEMA", short for New Market.[10][11] The first residents moved into the south tower on October 1, 2013, while the north tower opened to residents in March 2014.[12][13]
