188 King Street: Sales Update

Trying to make sense of what’s been happening over at 188 King is challenging at best. Three months ago, 188 King priced the first of what was to be three releases of condos. This initial release consisted of 16 units, three of which (#206, #404, #505) were already marked... Read More »

Arterra and The Hayes: Sales Centers

Arterra and The Hayes: Sales Centers

We have to admit, our tour of the joint Arterra and The Hayes sales center left us feeling a bit under-whelmed (but then again we’ve probably been spoiled by the showrooms at One Rincon Hill and The Infinity). No full-scale condos here, but plenty of drawings and representative kitchens/bathrooms... Read More »

We’re Definitely Arterra People

Thanks to J.K. Dineen at the San Francisco Business Times, we’ve got the scoop on the two new signature cocktails that will be lubricating the Arterra/Hayes sales center this weekend: The “Arterrajito,” a variation on the mojito, was inspired by Arterra’s environmentally friendly “green” design; while the “Hayes Breeze,”...

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 »

The Infinity Starts Selling

If you’re interested in The Infinity, let’s hope that you heeded our advice and submitted your pre-qualification letter weeks ago, because they’ve started taking deposits. According to a tipster that has already reserved a unit, “They are selling very quickly.” Unfortunately we don’t know if that’s just the sales... Read More »

It looks like The Mark Company might have concluded that the “signature cocktails” played a significant role in driving the condo buying frenzy at One Rincon Hill. This Saturday (7/22) The Hayes will be hosting a “Special Open House” complete with – you guessed it – signature cocktails! And... Read More »

Competition, Rates, And Plugging In

J.K.
