Proof That Prime View Properties Haven’t Depreciated At All

Purchased for $1,995,000 in April 2004, 1440 Kearny hit the market in October of 2008 seeking $2,850,000.

Hinting At Some Rather Spectacular Views (1454-1456 Kearny)

Next door to the cottage at 1448 Kearny, and sharing the same seller, lies 1454-1456. It’s a legal two-unit building that’s being used as one (with two kitchens), and with a relatively unspectacular façade that hints at some rather spectacular views. Read More »

A Remodeled Hit In The 1980’s Era 101 Lombard Street Development

A Remodeled Hit In The 1980’s Era 101 Lombard Street Development

The individual condos can be hit or miss, but we do find the 1980’s development (101 Lombard) to be underrated in terms of location, views, and setting (not to mention that it’s currently undergoing some major capital improvements). And while we haven’t seen its views, and perhaps it’s simply... Read More »

Just Quotes: This Is (Going To Be) A Mess On Telegraph Hill

“Building Inspection officials said the slide had occurred on private land and that the owners of the seven affected properties were responsible for removing the 30-foot pile of rocks and stabilizing the hill.” “Peter Chin owns two of the red-tagged buildings, at 426 and 432 Broadway, which between them...
