368 Elm Street
Six months ago we alerted you to a new Vanguard development on Turk street in Hayes Valley. Well, apparently they’ve chosen to go with an Elm Street address (the 28 unit building stretches from Turk to Elm), and while the website for 368 Elm Street is now live (and it’s six months later), the majority of the information is still “coming soon.”
On a related note, construction on the apartment building next door is going strong.

    While real estate appreciation for price seems to have slowed, the Hayes Valley neighborhood as a geographic entity continues to expand merrily after the freeway teardown. It is now at Turk street to the north, and other listings put it beyond Fillmore Street to the west. When will Hayes Valley cross Market Street?

    hayes valley includes a lot more territory than hayes street from franklin to laguna. while the boundaries may be a little hazy i would argue it has always included the lower haight & alamo square area so call divisadero the western edge.

    So “Western Addition” is now limited to public housing projects only?

    Is it just me, or does it seem that every single new condo project that hits the market is a “luxury” condo or “luxury” something-or-other? Have we lowered our standards, or do developers/owners/builders/agents/Realtors all think the buying public is just dumb or blind?
    I don’t mean to imply that this particular development is not “luxurious,” (I haven’t seen it) but I do find this labeling practice particularly annoying.

    western addition…shit, not an ideal marketing buzzword. agents use a niftier subset…lower pacific heights, anza vista, hayes valley, nopa, upper DMV, whatever. i can’t wait to see how that new mixed use condo development in the fillmore “jazz district” will be marketed.

    I agree, but I remember when “Hayes Valley = [Let’s just say ‘Addict’] under an Overpass”. Can’t the supes just vote to makes all Pacific Heights or Lower Pacific Heights.

    So what is it now? [Removed by Editor] Personally I prefer “DMV Foothills”…..sounds more dignified. And for the record, anything with granite counters and stainless steel appliances counts as luxury today.

    I agree with the comment about “luxury”…although I also haven’t seen this development, what is it that makes it luxurious? And, when did Hayes Valley become “super chic”. It doesn’t make my list of chic neighborhoods in SF.

    No, it’s not “super chic”– it’s “ultra-chic”!
