Purchased for $5.25 million in May of 2017, the designer Lower Pacific Heights loft at 2230 Bush Street, which is hidden in plain sight above the recently shuttered FLOR store and features two stacked shipping containers that divide the 3,600-square-foot loft’s living and family rooms, and yield a convertible guest suite and home office, returned to the market last month and quickly traded for $300K more ($5.55 million).

As always, design matters.  But the re-sale wasn’t perfectly apples-to-apples as a new rooftop bar has been added to the unit (and the Japanese soaking tub removed).

And in the midst of a pandemic, well equipped and functional outdoor space is trading at a premium.
