330 Mission Bay Boulevard (Radiance)

Brand new and listed for $1,150,000 in 2009, the two-bedroom Mission Bay condo #702 at 330 Mission Bay Boulevard (a.k.a. Radiance) ended up selling for $925,000, or roughly $575 per square foot, that October, with unobstructed views in three directions.

Since then, the neighborhood has been built up a bit, and there are plans to build even more.

Nonetheless, with employment in San Francisco having outpaced the construction of housing by a factor of ten-to-one, the 1,608-square-foot 330 Mission Bay Boulevard #702 has just returned to the market listed for $1,995,000, or roughly $1,241 per square foot, and with a bit of targeted staging.

    Those cute little techie-pens are brilliant! Sort of like sleep cubicles.

      Yes, and two per room, so your team can go from pair programming to pair napping without a reorg.

      Actually, I think they look like mini-jail cells. The kids’ first words will be, “Get me a lawyer.”

    “targeted staging”? Like to parents of twin babies? Sounds like a brilliant strategy. Who else can afford to pay two million otherwise?

    You know, I’ve always lusted after views. But looking at the photos, the views seem to be in 3 directions of other condos’ and offices’ windows, all covered up in shades. As your windows would have to be, most of the time, for privacy’s sake. There are million-dollar views (or, in this city, five million dollar views) from the top of tall buildings and hills that are grand, sweeping, and still afford a bit of privacy due to sheer distance from the hoi polloi, and there are these kind of views. Maybe the views from my house into the mass of trees in the backyard garden isn’t so bad, after all. Or am I overanalyzing? What is it like to live with a wall of windows close to other people with walls of windows?

      That’s what I want to know! I also list for views, but have to settle. For my large avocado tree and its accompanying birds. And a random neighborhood cat that likes climbing said tree.

    That has got to be the ugliest collection of furniture I’ve ever seen in a staged condo.

      I like how the chair and ottoman have been pushed back, away from the seating area. Apparently, Dad’s on a time-out.

    That nursery room must be tiny because the photographer shot with a super wide angle lens and then needed to stretch even more to make it look normal. Check out how the wall fixtures on the right appear to be facing the camera instead of facing left.

    This is one of the staging tricks. If a room is too small for a normal bedroom, stage it as a nursery because the cribs are a lot smaller than beds.

    @Milkshake: Yep, you can also see the remnants of the original electrical sockets on the crib post, so they managed to “fix” that element.

    Or it is a subtle social cue that we want to target couples with kids. No more than UCSF Department of General Medicine’s newsletter hitting me over the head with doctors who feel the need to describe their family breakdown, x number of kids, Susie loves soccer, Jack is into rock climbing, and hobbies. How about just telling me how much (or not) your patients like you and your skill set? I have yet to come across a client who hires me based on my personal interests as opposed to my skills.
