A tipster writes, “…how apropos, I stumbled across this Brannan condo [219 Brannan #16D] through a [Google] link on your site. Thought you’d appreciate the views.” You know us all too well. And we couldn’t help but notice that #15D is on the market as well (if you’re looking to save $25,000).
UPDATE: Okay, this isn’t too embarrassing. Despite being advertised, it looks as if #16D is no longer on the market (which is, ironically, a particular pet peeve of ours). And what’s even worse, we actually linked to this property six months ago when it first hit the market as the “Architect’s Residence” (we knew it looked familiar). It happens. And regardless, it’s still a great view (and #15D is still available).

    Actually 16D sold several months ago, for a South Beach record per square foot.

    Seems like a better deal than The Infinity!

    I was disappointed that 15D’s “walk-in panty” wasn’t pictured.
    Realtors, proof your copy.

    “Actually 16D sold several months ago, for a South Beach record per square foot”
    I heard it sold for something like $1500/SqFt! Most of Infinity’s tower view units are going for $950-$1250 SqFt depending on floor and view so looks like that person overpaid. I doubt you’ll find someone to buy that same 16D unit for $1500/Sqft these day…

    Presale units would almost always sell for less than units you can touch and see so I still think the infinity is overpriced. The Brannan is also a sought after address.

    I noticed the hardwood on identical floor plan is laid in different directions. Is there a prefered approach? For example, the lines go with the longer dimension, or perpandicular from the side with the most window footage.

    After all the dust settles, it’ll be interesting to see which building becomes a ‘sought after address’.
    Hard to judge the Infinity or 1Rincon based simply on a model home.
    Given Infinity’s prime location and 1Rincon’s dramatic hilltop location, I’d say in 5 years, BOTH will be one of the ‘sought after addresses’ in SF…

    Really? I always thought presale/new units are more expensive because of the newness factor and the better selection.
    $1500 sq/ft is overpriced. A high floor infinity unit is cheaper, newer, has a better location, and is cheaper.

    I personally like the direction of the dark wood floor. For some reason it makes the space feel sleeker and the space seems to flow better. I think it is just a matter of preference.

    Good point Mike. $1500/Sqft only gets you a 16th floor unit with some views of the bay, but also of some ugly parking lots near the Watermark and the bleak canceled cruise terminal.
    At $1200+/sqft, you can get a better, more spectacular bay view on the 30th floor or higher at Infinty, not to mention the better location.

    For some reason the Brannan seems higher quality than the Infinity. I really do not like the design of the common space of the infinity. The Brannan’s is nicer than both Infinity and One Rincon.

    That statement is sort of like saying…
    “For some reason the Ferrari seems higher quality than the Lamborgini. I really do not like the upholstery in the Lamborgini. The Ferrari is nicer than both the Lamborgini and the Maserati.”
    C’mon….

    If you’re paying $1200/sf at The Infinity, your views will be obstructed within five years. Check the neighborhood growth-height plan. Unobstructed views at the Infinity are selling at $1650 – $2000/sf. Ouch,I know. But someone had to tell you.

    It IS like saying the above becuase IT IS my opinion. That’s why I used words such as “like” and “seems.”
    To back up my opinion though, have you been to all three developments? The materials at the Brannan are very high end. The layout of the pool area and common space is very elegant. It is my opinion but I do not think the common space of the inifity has the same finishes or elegance at all. It’s a small pool tucked underneath the courtyard. All in that lame white color palette. Have you seen the renderings? One Rincon’s is nicer but I still THINK the Brannan’s is nicer. AND I bought at One Rincon.

    Yes….and that precisely why I decided on 1Rincon.
    Brannan was WAY too expensive for what it was (I purchased a great 2-2 on a high floor with a city/twin peaks view for $800/sq ft).

    I own a Ferrari. When was the last time a Lamborghini or Maserati won a Formula 1 race? Both are faux sports cars.
    As to the Rincon Hill and Transbay terminal new projects, they are a planner’s wet dream. Is this the new neighborhood? Are the rest of these projects going to get beyond planning, ask attorney Sue Hestor! Where are any neighborhood retail support (grocery, coffee shops, etc.)? The biggest excitement will be the daily road rage fights during the gridlock getting on and off the Bay Bridge.
