While plugged-in people everywhere should already be well aware of 1234 Howard and those amazing aluminum louvers (not to mention some pricing and a review), this morning we learn (via the Chronicle, Saitowitz, and a tipster) that the cost to build the minimalist design was “about $200 a square foot.”
Keep in mind, however, that the cost to build is not the same as the total cost to develop (think land, permits, etc.). And while we don’t have an official update on sales, we do note that none of the second-floor units listed a month ago are in contract. Tipsters?
UPDATE: From Stanley Saitowitz / Natoma Architects directly: “The gross square footage costs of the whole building including the large garage, the extensive outdoor areas, big decks and generous circulation is in the $200 range. The construction costs for the interior habitable areas of the units is well over $350 per square foot.”
