Despite another misreport that’s now making the rounds, while the recent sale of the full-floor unit #6 in the iconic Alta Plaza Apartments building at 2500 Steiner Street was a record-setting price for a unit in the building at $15.5 million, or roughly $4,428 per square foot, it didn’t break any records for San Francisco. In fact, it wasn’t even close.

Once again, the full-floor unit #10 at 2006 Washington Street quietly sold for $32 million, or roughly $5,926 per square foot, six years ago.

And having since been gutted and completely remodeled, the 5,400-square-foot Penthouse unit at 2006 Washington is now back on the market with a $45 million price tag, a sale at which would equate to over $8,300 per square foot and actually smash the price per square foot record in San Francisco, again.

    Real estate fetish and so much fun to look at photos in NY, SF, Miami and other affluent global destinations. I read Elle Decor, AD, Nob Hill Gazette, Wall St Journal Mansion section & Financial Times in search of design ideas for my hot little 1BR rent controlled apartment in SF
