Last night’s celebratory meeting for buyers of condos over at Madrone in South Mission Bay took a turn for the worse when the topic of technology was raised. From a plugged-in attendee of the meeting hosted by Bosa Development:
During the question & answer portion of the meeting, it became apparent to the homeowners that Bosa did not wire the complex for satellite TV. It also did not wire the complex for webpass / ethernet internet. The meeting was supposed to have a celebratory feeling, but it quickly turned cantankerous.
Homeowners were dumbfounded as to why in 2012, this complex wouldn’t have been wired for this day and age, especially since all other high rises in the area have these technology options….even the Beacon. The Bosa San Francisco Vice President responded that the reason for this was because the Madrone was actually designed in 2001 and those technologies weren’t available in 2001. Of course, this just angered the audience all the more.
One homeowner in the audience suggested that since they bought a 2001 design, perhaps they should be paying 2001 prices, a suggestion to which Bosa didn’t take too kindly.
