Cattle In Eureka Valley

Cattle In Eureka Valley

Yesterday we received the above 1880’s photograph of Eureka Valley and 70 Douglass. “70 Douglass is one of the few surviving structures from a time when Eureka Valley was better known for farms and cattle. In the photo, that’s a cattle yard on the East side of Douglass. 70... Read More »

The Infinity: A Study In Contrast

The Infinity: A Study In Contrast

Our previous post on The Infinity has generated some great comments from both prospective and actual buyers of The Infinity and One Rincon Hill. The early sentiment: The Infinity has a better location, One Rincon offers a better value (i.e., price), and navigating rush hour traffic will probably suck... Read More »

Competition, Rates, And Plugging In

J.K. Dineen hits the front page of the San Francisco Business Times with a great piece titled, “Competition runs high: Luxury condos vie for buyers on Rincon Hill.” And while the piece focuses on the Metropolitan, it might just be a bellwether for other developments around town.

Noe Valley Numbers And Insight

Garrett (of Greg & Garrett fame) was kind enough to drop us a note to let us know that our post on Noe Valley price reductions inspired him to add some Noe Valley sales stats to the Greg & Garrett blog. (We’re suckers for numbers.) The comparison of actual... Read More »

The Cost Coming Down?

The Cost Coming Down?

KRON 4’s Maureen Kelly takes a look at the wave of high-rise developments in San Francisco and coins the phrase “San Franhatten” (San Francisco + Manhattan). Adding insult to injury, or perhaps editorial commentary, the KRON 4 website manages to refer to it as “San Franshatten.” ∙ High Rises... Read More »

The Neighborhood Smackdown Starts

The Neighborhood Smackdown Starts

ReyEstate publishes a SWOT analysis for the South Beach/Rincon/Transbay area. And it’s not pretty (well, the little up/down house arrow is actually kind of cute). Then again, a lot of emphasis is put on the “over/below asking” stat which consistently gets our vote for the “most meaningless, misleading, and... Read More »

The Future Of Rincon/Transbay

The Future Of Rincon/Transbay

We missed it in print, so we were pleasantly surprised to discover that The Lansing is providing 7×7’s great overview of what’s in the works for the area around Rincon Hill and the Transbay Terminal (Rincon/Transbay) as a downloadable pdf (5.3MB). Ten or 11 new residential high-rises, interspersed among... Read More »
