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).

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 »

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 Hayes: 55 Page Street

And speaking of Intracorp, The Hayes has launched a new website since we first alerted you to New Condos Starting In The $400,000s. (And yes, the new site is complete with the requisite floor plan porn, their own inside scoop, and a nice little neighborhood map.) ∙ The Hayes... Read More »
