45 Lansing Site In Contract, No Imminent Eviction For The Bees
According to the San Francisco Business Times, Miami-based developer Crescent Heights is now in contract to purchase the site from Turnberry for $13 million, 57 percent less than Turnberry paid for the site back in 2006 ($30 million).
Crescent Heights is still seeking for financing for its 750-unit development at 1401 Market Street which hasn't seen much movement over the past three years. We're not expecting the current residents at 45 Lansing to receive eviction notices anytime soon.

Yes, the deal is in the works, but the probable outcome is that the new owner will build apartments, not condos, and will file a condo map for conversion down the road.

What does this mean for approved design?

Is 40 cents on the dollar for commercial property in SF the "new normal" rate of return for boom acquisitions? This is the 3rd or 4th time I've heard that number in the past year.

I hope they build it 40 stories tall and that they build a long mechanical arm that extends all the way to Gil's house and thermodynamically creates rain clouds which encompasses him in grayness every minute of the day.
