188 King: Phase I Pricing

188 King: Phase I Pricing

188 King opened its doors this weekend and has priced its first of three releases. The high ceilings, floor to ceiling windows, and open layouts, particularly of floor plan 3 (or the 02 series), did not dissapoint; and the finishes were impressive (although the Amana refrigerator seemed out of...

Add Your Name To This Mansion

Add Your Name To This Mansion

The Verdier/Scholes Mansion at 1001 Vallejo is quintessential old-school (and old-money) San Francisco. We’re talking a conservatory, secret garden, and terraces galore. Not to mention a $14,000,000 price tag. And although we give it a “C” for curb appeal, it’s a stunning property with a rich history, modern amenities,... Read More »

Curbed Shoots…And Misses

Yesterday, Curbed tried to make sense of CA Assembly Bill 728 (allowing developers to accept binding non-refundable 3% deposits on pre-construction developments) and the current condo market; sales at the Watermark; and the relevancy of new sales centers to consumers.
