Bay Buildings: The Metropolitan (333/355 1st Street)

Back in early 2004 the San Francisco Business Times wrote the following: “As the first true housing highrise to sprout out of San Francisco’s Rincon Hill, 20-story north tower and 27-story south tower look awfully lonely…But fortunately for our forlorn friend, Rincon Hill’s soil is fertile and...

Yerba Buena Lofts Redux

Yerba Buena Lofts Redux

Last August we featured three units in the Yerba Buena Lofts (855 Folsom). Today, Curbed offer a great overview of the building, its architect, and three new listings. A couple of observations: Michael Broerman owns the listings in that building; and is it just us, or do the average... Read More »

Truth In Advertising: 1750 Taylor (Royal Towers)

Truth In Advertising: 1750 Taylor (Royal Towers)

It’s not often that we wholeheartedly agree with an agent’s description of a listing. In the case of 1750 Taylor #1301, we just might… “With over 3,200 square feet of living space, state-of-the-art amenities, walls of steel & glass, and three terraces, this magnificent home offers unequalled sophistication and...

New Developments: Sierra Heights

New Developments: Sierra Heights

You still have to wear a hardhat if you’re planning on a tour, but the Sierra Heights sales office is definitely open (Sat-Thu). Sixty-seven units, three buildings (East, West, and North) and one phase (targeting occupancy for June/July). As best we can tell, about 50% sold (90% of the... Read More »

1635 California Street

1635 California Street

Vanguard’s marketing materials describe 1635 California Street as having a “stylish entrance lobby and elevator much like a boutique hotel”. And after making it to yesterday’s open house, we’d say “boutique hotel” fairly characterizes the “36 modern luxury residences” as well. Much like 1725 Washington, these “residences” suffer from...

Update: 1725 Washington Street

Some brokers’ tour comments for Washington Square West (1725 Washington): “great light, area, and reasonable HOA,” but “little storage space with small rooms and living space”. And despite being advertised as “SOLD” on the pricing sheet, units #2 and #6 have simply been reserved for below market rate (“BMR”)... Read More »

New Developments: 1725 Washington Street

14 of the 16 brand new condominiums at 1725 Washington Street hit the market this week with an open house this Sunday (2/5) from 1-4 PM. We can’t make this one, but would love for some kind soul to take a camera (we need a better picture), grab a... Read More »

Forget $340M Powerball, Just Give Us A Damn Condo!

Forget $340M Powerball, Just Give Us A Damn Condo!

4,300 applicants, 400 drawn names, and only 20 lucky “winners”. Residents in other cities dream of winning multi-million dollar lotteries, while here in San Francisco we dream about winning the right to purchase a 600 square foot condo in the Beacon for a measly $172k. The fine print: “applicants... Read More »
