LINEA.jpg

Ranging in size from 450 to 1,198 square feet, the floor plans for all 115 condos coming to the market at 8 Buchanan (aka “LINEA” or 1998 Market Street) are now online with the sales office “gallery” slated to open at the end of July.

As plugged-in people know, all 115 units will be market rate with the affordable housing (BMR) component for the project being built offsite in the 24-unit building at 1600 Market Street.

    Surprised they’re not building the BMR component really offsite, like Chico.
    Is it my imagination or are there only a small handful of firms designing all these projects?

    So refreshing that this one is not another variation of the style being built everywhere else on upper Market with the exception of 8 Octavia.

    BTW – Anyone have any idea what is going on across Market St from this at 1939 Market? The old union building is boarded up and it looks like something is going on…

    Yeah, I really like the look of this building. It’s very unique, and may actually survive the test of time.

    Steve, they’re just renovating the building. Personally, I wish the parking lot on the corner could be put to better use.

    I predict fully sold within 5 months…or less.

    Love the design, but how long after the first tenant moves in do we predict the recycling center across the street will close?

    a refreshing design, love it!

    Refreshing and exciting exterior, though ridiculous floor plans make for an overall disappointing project.

    “how long after the first tenant moves in do we predict the recycling center across the street will close?”
    I’m hoping day one, if not sooner!

    Interesting the largest units are on the lowest floors.

    Looking at the line forming at the recycling center in the morning will provide endless entertainment.
    I pass by this corner pretty often and have noticed there are more and more “wholesale” recycling operations. A moving-van type vehicle will double-park and busy bees will unload the large bags of redeemable cans/bottles.
    Then there are the lazies who camp in the bushes, the very shady guys 1 block down who spend their lives on the sidewalk. Always be aware of your surroundings.

    Not digging the floor plans. Weird ass angles.

    I just drove by and saw it for the first time today. this building looks quite good.
    rather than squint at floorplans (which I’m not accustomed to doing) I’ll look forward to seeing units when they’re done. (then I’ll look at floorplans to see how they correlate).
    small and more affordable units. sounds like just what the city could use. interesting project!

    Me too, NO NO. The floor plans are awful. All the design energy went into the facade…except buyers don’t buy the facade, they buy the floor plan. It’s a common mistake these days…you see it over and over. It’s only demand that saves these projects.

    Anybody know pricing range? Wondering how “affordable” these will be.

    If you look at the full set of floorplans on the website it looks like most of them are perfectly rectangular, only a few have the angles.

    For a chance for it to (if only briefly) look like that night time rendering, I hope that the developer has budgeted in quality window coverings that provide privacy but allow light to pass through. Power operated mechoshades, or whatever, and put them in the HOA rules.
    Otherwise expect a random mix of 24-hour mini-blinds, plush rococo velvet drapery and everything else in between with the random velvet Elvis painting thrown in.

    While there are a few challenging floorplans due to the unigue geometry of the building – which I think the architect’s layout does mitigate – almost all of the floorplans are rectangular with a great open layout.
    I really like this building – it certainly is not typical of what we are seeing built today…

    Hey, the floor plans are great if you like the focal point of your home to be a long kitchen in the living room. These are not to live in or cook in. Your life had better be elsewhere and this is only where you sleep and eat take out. Some of the small rooms also have a structural Pole in an inconvenient space wasting location.
    But the exterior is terrific.

    Look at the floorplans floor by floor – most are typical well laid out rectangular condo plans. The two in the picture are actually the exception when you consider there are 115 units to choose from.
    Most of the larger two bedrooms on on floors 6-9. The views should be spectacular from this building.

    And by “most are typical well laid out rectangular condo plans” you mean 3/9 (ond-third) are. And by “larger two bedrooms” you mean up to 1030 square feet? You must be in the real estate business.

    Oooh, I do not like all the angles in the floor plan. I love the exterior design but the interiors seem very forced into place.

    No place to put a dining room table in most of these plans. Why is there such little space allocated to dining? We don’t need a formal dining room but like many other condos in SF these are grossly inadequate.

    “Why is there such little space allocated to dining?”
    Because people don’t want it. If they did, they’d be willing to pay for it and developers would build it.

    Just like clockwork, the recycling center has been evicted.

  27. Posted by lol

    Great news! This recycling center serves no function apart from inciting theft of recyclables from people’s bins. This then goes into funding someone’s addiction. Food, shelter, healthcare, cell phones are already paid for in SF, except for people who refuse it for whatever personal reason.
