1050 North Point #1502 Living

If the combined two units don’t offer enough space for you, the sale of “1050 North Point #1502” includes another two-bedroom unit across the hall (1050 North Point #1501).  And the views from that unit aren’t too shabby either.

  1. While I’m not a fan of the white box and wouldn’t live in one, it is not inappropriate here.
    This will probably sell to a foreign national or other out-of-towner for occasional occupancy.

  2. Very well done. Anyone know who the architect, design and build were on this job? Many nice touches and the views are great. Considering this building is known for low ceilings they did a great job of masking the relatively low height. 1501 sold for $1.1 in 2010 in what was reported as “original condition”. Should be interesting to see how this does on the market. Personally, I would have liked to have seen a wine closet rise from 14th floor and into the space.

    I’m a little confused on how the elevator works as common space? Is that private to the condo(s)?

    1. I thought the building was known more for having annual HOAs in the “10% of sale price” territory. Only half-exaggerating.

  3. How did they get approval of the merging of the units at the Planning Commission since unit merger is the one thing they seem to not want to approve.

  4. The south windows all face on to common balcony walkway so anyone can look inside if shades are not drawn? I think because of the sliding glass door facing the south corridor in far western unit they may be able to call this a separate entry? The public corridor balcony on south side always seemed strange to me.

    1. That may be a safety requirement (so any unit can reach the emergency stairs in case of fire, etc.) My building is like that too. But at least in my building, the balcony area in front of each of our units is an “exclusive use common area” for that unit. So my neighboring unit is not allowed to walk on my part of the balcony, and vice versa, except in emergency. It is probably this way at Fontana too.

  5. It’s interesting to me that this building is one of the poster children of anti-development sentiment in SF– and yet SF’s response is to do all it can to preserve this building’s views, and make sure that it remains the exclusive mid-rise in the area.

  6. Never enough space. In a city that mainly builds cubbies for transitional residents, more dwelling mergers are likely to happen to accommodate growing families who want to raise kids here. The percentage of mergers in NYC is booming in brand new buildings bc more and more are choosing Chelsea over Larchmont, or SOMA over Lafayette — in the coming years. Spacious housing for growing families strengthens our neighborhoods and city. No one wants to raise a family in a micro condo box. Watch what happens as SF matures.

    1. I thought the same thing when I saw the item on the SRO unit on Folsom. A bunch of boxes will get merged. Personally I think the merger unit thing should not be blanket policy. Sometimes merging is very justified and makes sense. If they are trying to preserve housing they need a bigger stick than just stopping people from putting a house back together again to make it a single family home as it may have been originally for example. Plus, people can obviously do a merger of units and avoid the City all together. I can count at least five or six where that has happened just by walking around Noe Valley, and those are the obvious ones.

  7. It’s a super cool house.

    How do people feel about the LED light installations?
    I like the look – an aggressive design choice though…
    Will they look dated in 10 years? I guess as long as they are switchable, one isn’t forced to use them.

    1. I like most of the more subtle LED lighting in the place, but the two parts that look like a squared archway right on the wall in front of seating areas. That’s a bit too strong of design. Plus, at night, which is probably the only time you’d use them, they might reflect off the glass and make it harder to see the great views.

  8. The living room is very impractical. The entertainment recess only appears to support a 40 inch television. But with all the white walls… maybe you can project something bigger.

    [Editor’s Note: Note the HD projector in the ceiling which retracts when not in use.]

  9. It’s a trivial concern, but why does the headline call this an “outrageous assemblage of units”. I can see “ample”, or “impressive”, or “sprawling”, but nothing about this seems like an outrage to me.

  10. UPDATE: Listed together for $5,850,000 in October, you can now buy the pieces for $1,998,000 (1050 North Point #1501) and $2,998,000 (1050 North Point #1502/03A), an effective price cut of $854,000 or roughly 15 percent.
