Stainless-Steel?  So What?

Stainless-Steel? So What?

As “stainless-steel” has evolved from describing a kitchen outfitted with true commercial grade appliances to simply any kitchen with stainless-steel front panel appliances (a particular pet peeve of ours), high-end manufactures, and consumers, are looking for ways to differentiate themselves from the riffraff.

Spoiler Alert: One Rincon Hill Video

Spoiler Alert: One Rincon Hill Video

Okay, so maybe we were less than impressed by the One Rincon Hill webcam, but their video left us dazed (and yet strangely giddy). Yes, based on the pictures and press (“the tallest residential property west of the Mississippi”) we knew these towers were going to be tall, but... Read More »

The Arterra: “Clean Design, Pure Living” at 300 Berry Street

The Arterra, a 268-unit ‘Green’ condo development, has broken ground at 300 Berry Street. Developed by Intracorp San Francisco (also developing The Hayes) and architected by Kwan Henmi, the Arterra is marketed as “clean design, pure living,” and billed as a “pioneering green building of sophisticated design.” The three-level...

But What About The Television?

But What About The Television?

You may covet one of those remote controlled hidden televisions, but what you really need is a “cleverly disquised remote controlled hidden bed.” ∙ Listing: 1255 California #102 – $487,000 Read More »

Yet Another Reason To Plug In To SocketSite

Yet Another Reason To Plug In To SocketSite

Almost six weeks since we brought the “Greenest Home In San Francisco” to your attention, the Chronicle publishes a great overview of the house (520 Clipper). If you were plugged in to SocketSite, you actually had a chance to tour (or purchase) the pad. If not, you’ll just have... Read More »

Apartment Therapy San Francisco Goes Live

Apartment Therapy San Francisco Goes Live

New York based Apartment Therapy has officially flipped the switch on the San Francisco edition. And despite the fact we don’t get a mention on the site (perhaps it was that “Golden Gate City” dig), we’re still fans (and you should be too). We remain hopeful that one of... Read More »

New York In Nob Hill

New York In Nob Hill

As you know, it’s not often that we agree with listing hyperbole. And although we’ve only seen pictures (so far), we just might have to agree with the “One of a Kind Loft in Nob Hill!” claim for 1022 Powell St. #3. Then again, we’re suckers for vines, brick,... Read More »

An Exhibitionist At Heart (And Rightfully So)

An Exhibitionist At Heart (And Rightfully So)

Big windows, ocean views, an open floor plan, Wolf stove, Sub-Zero fridge, radiant heat, and decks…yep, we’re definitely digging the “to the studs remodel” of 2127 29th Ave (but not the parquet floors in the living/dining area).

Say Hello To Your New SF Skyline

Say Hello To Your New SF Skyline

Some weekend research led us to the SkyscraperPage Forum, and a pretty incredible post by Forum member “FourOneFive” way back in 2003. Titled, “SAN FRANCISCO Rundown: Recently Completed, Under Construction, Approved, and Proposed” it’s just that, damn comprehensive, and with rendering porn galore. Today, we tip our hat to...
