I toured this back in 2008. I like the unit and building a lot, but I think the price is too high. IIRC, the kitchen counters have some noticeable wear. The very nice corner view will lose a lot when all the construction is done across Beale and Folsom (and it'll be more shaded, too ;-). Should sell at $1.15M or so.

Nice place, agreed it's over priced. Those giant white flower pictures are cool especially when lit up - I've always like the one at Circa.

Gray is the new brown.

Whats gray have to do with brown

Eh. Still overpriced at $1M+. I toured it as well. Nothing impressive, zero-amenities building.

Great unit nicely done. Love the zero amenities, keeps HOA dues low.

$700/mo is low?

The original idea behind a shared living arrangement like a condo was that, sure you had to put up with more noise, a HOA that dictated when you could sneeze, etc., but you got to spread out the costs of amenities 150 ways so that you got to enjoy a pool, spa, etc and yet only paid a fraction of one percent of the upkeep. Zero amenities buildings defeat the whole point of a condo. All the downsides with none of the upsides. If you are going to put up with the hassle, the least you can do is to get a pool for $20 per month. Seems like a wasted opportunity.

HOAs cover building maintenance, insurance, and other non-amenity components, which hopefully sustain a healthy reserve.

Doesn't the HOA'S also cover ELECTRIC & GAS, as well as water, grounds maint. & insurance? I think they have radiant heated concrete floors in this unit. That's a big plus to have those bills covered I would think.
