The 10th floor of the überexclusive Pacific Heights building at 2006 Washington Street [had] traded hands in a hush-hush deal and at a price point never before seen in San Francisco.
While the seller had been privately seeking as much as $35 million for the 5,400-square-foot, full-floor unit #10, according to a plugged-in source, the sale price was closer to $30 million.
A sale at $30 million would not only make it the most expensive apartment (condo/co-op) in San Francisco, surpassing the $28 million paid for the nearly 17,000-square-foot penthouse atop the San Francisco St. Regis, but it would shatter the price per square foot record for all residences in the city, both current and anticipated, at over $5,500 per square foot.
And we’re told the buyers, who are not in tech nor from overseas, are working on plans to gut and remodel the unit.
With the sale of the 5,700-square-foot unit two floors below (2006 Washington #8) having just closed escrow for $22 million, or roughly $3,860 per square foot, we realized we never circled back with the exact sale price for 2006 Washington #10 (which has, in fact, since been remodeled).
And while never officially listed nor captured on any industry-based reports, the record-setting contract price for 2006 Washington Street #10 was $32 million or roughly $5,926 per square foot in March of 2015.
