Kiss That Deposit Goodbye

At first glance, it’s just another move. Upon closer inspection, however, it’s poignant commentary on the springtime rush to renovate and the heightened demand for construction dumpsters (and perhaps lack thereof) in San Francisco. On a much smaller scale, perhaps not too dissimilar from the shortage of labor and... Read More »

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...

New Developments: 340 – 350 Fremont

Damion Matthews passes along renderings of the proposed and, as far as we know, yet to be named 40-story development for 340 – 350 Fremont Street. Conflicting reports on the proposed number of condos (we’ve seen mention of both 380 and 400 units), but definitely designed by Heller-Manus (other... Read More »

776 Tehama/1277 Howard: Pricing

776 Tehama/1277 Howard: Pricing

776 Tehama/1277 Howard is now open. Decent views from the upper floors, and relatively spacious, but we’re not so sure about that “luxury” moniker. Overall, we weren’t terribly impressed, but then again we’re probably too damn picky. One interesting note: as far as we know, the first residential new... Read More »

Weekend Update: Three Weeks Later

Call it tradition, a need to see it through to the end, or just plain rubbernecking, but damn it, we’re following these units until they sell. 1. 1725 Washington: Seven of the fourteen units remain available (#12 has yet to be added to the MLS). 2. 1625 California: At... Read More »

What’s Really Going On? (Part I And A Half)

Despite all the hype, it appears that “starchitected” condos aren’t actually selling that well in New York (according to the Wall Street Journal). Curbed offers a fine rundown for the subscriptionaly challenged. The relevance to San Francisco you ask? Well, Damion Matthews (of “What’s Really Going On?” fame) points... Read More »

Bay Buildings: The Metropolitan (333/355 1st Street)

Bay Buildings: The Metropolitan (333/355 1st Street)

Back in early 2004 the San Francisco Business Times wrote the following: “As the first true housing highrise to sprout out of San Francisco’s Rincon Hill, 20-story north tower and 27-story south tower look awfully lonely…But fortunately for our forlorn friend, Rincon Hill’s soil is fertile and...
