Coming Soon: [email protected] (39 new boutique units) at Mission and 15th Street

COMING SOON

Signs are going up this Saturday at [email protected] Mission.

Coming Soon: [email protected] 1875 Mission, 39 new, boutique, glamorous condominiums in a exclusive building modeled after a boutique hotel with rooftop pool and lounge coming in August, but available early to Vanguard agents and their clients.

What it is: 39 homes, rooftop pool., lounge and dog run at Mission and 15th Streets.

Details: Unlike many developments in San Francisco, this one is being designed by someone who knows what folks want, Rusty Wadatz, Vanguard Properties’ agent and rising interior designer star. There will be an August 1 launch, but until then Vanguard Properties agents will be able to see it first (in 3 weeks) and take reservations early. Anticipated prices are moderate (for early sales of course) with studios starting at $630,000 topping out at $1.2M/$1.3M for a 2-bedroom unit. There are three different finishes each with a different mood and feel but all are going to be elegant and glamorous in a boutique-style development uncommon to San Francisco.

Register now at: www.m1875.com and await further instructions for reservations.

Take a look at the project under wraps via Google Maps.

Kevin’s Open House Picks of the Weekend: March 21-23, 2014, 1st Weekend of Spring Edition

There are just 92 new listings new to the MLS from Thursday into Friday with 10 listings coming back on the market during that time and 366 scheduled open houses in San Francisco this weekend.

There are A LOT of single family homes that have caught my eye this week. Yes, many of them are at the high end, but others are in the middle and there are fixers among them too.

There a fixer with a potential in Eureka Valley at 4540 19th Street listed for $1.495M, a cute, drop-dead views of SF home near Dolores Park at 293 Cumberland that could use a garage installation listed at $1.7M and there’s also an interesting Victorian/Cottage project-building at 3 Laussat Street listed for just $875,000.  In the theme of large homes: there’s a chic, large Noe Valley, eco-friendly, 2012-renovated home with 2 car garage, radiant heat, solar panels, yard, open floor plan, and extra deep 114’ lot at 257 29th Street listed for a modest $2.995M. A pair of smaller Noe Valley houses, one at 369 Valley and another seemingly small-looking-but-larger home is located at 1515 Noe. A little to the west is a nice 4 bedroom home at 265 Kensington with 4 parking spaces near West Portal and St. Francis Wood for $1.2M. For a large stunner nearer the coast, take a look at 160 San Marcos, a Forest Knolls 3500+sqft new 2014-built 3 bed, 3.5 bath, den, elevator and 2-car garage with high-end finishes. And for you Liberty Hill fans, there’s a Victorian fixer that’s been used as a 2-unit building with more than 13 rooms and a 1-car garage located at 4121 20th Street listed for $1.7M between Noe and Castro Streets that will be delivered vacant at close of escrow that has scores of possibilities. For an updated craftsman in Glen Park take a look at another chic renovation at 264 Surrey. There’s a vacant 2-unit building over at 27th and Dolores at 171 27th Street that also offers a lot of possibilities too that’s being sold as a 2-unit building or separate TICs.  And over in the eastern parts of San Francisco, there’s that ‘perfect’ air-conditioned 1 story Victorian at 878 Hampshire listed for just $1.2M, a stunner of a 2800-sqft newly renovated home at 1164 De Haro in Potrero listed at $2.25M.

For condos, I really like 1070 Guerrero, which is a modern 2-level LEED condo built recently with 3 bedrooms that has that chic white-wall, broad plank, tall-ceiling feel of a modern and urban home located among historic houses near the Mission Dolores corridor, listed at $1.5M. In the vicinity sits 942 South Van Ness Avenue, a 2009-built 3 Bed, 3.5 Bath, condo with nearly 1900 sqft of living area listed for $1.359M. The Onyx SF over at De Haro and 17th Street new condos are now open. Other condos that look interesting are a clutch in the South Beach area (200 Brannan, the Brannan across the street). There is a cute condo on Dehon Street, right near 16th Street and Sanchez that comes with parking, character and light at 14 Dehon that is worth a look as are the listings at the Arterra, 175  Bluxome and 177 Townsend for smaller condos/lofts as are the ones at 1310 Minnesota and 1800 Bryant.

And as for 2+ unit buildings, the three-unit building at 357 Sanchez at 16th Street in the Castro near Duboce Park is finally open to the public and is being sold as an entire building or individual TICs. In the Inner Mission area, a three-unit building at 2331 Bryant is open as is the stunningly huge Queen Anne home at 955 S. Van Ness is open as is the lovely 2-unit building at 728 Clayton near Cole Valley.

S.F. architecture shifts to darker tone – SFGate

In the world of San Francisco architecture, black is the new black.

It’s the color of choice on a 37-story Market Street apartment tower and a six-story condominium building in Dogpatch. Fresh coats of black paint adorn downtown hotels and retooled houses across the city’s neighborhoods. More examples are on the way, including a building that will rise two blocks from City Hall and be clad in glazed tiles of black and gray.

The trend is becoming as ubiquitous as food trucks. It’s a surefire way to turn heads. But a little novelty goes a long way.

Rockridge-style “market hall” could flower in Castro – San Francisco Business Times

The Castro could get a food emporium similar to Oakland’s Rockridge Market Hall under a revised plan that developer Forest City Enterprises has submitted to the San Francisco Planning Department.

The proposed 2175 Market St.

The proposed 88-unit project at 2175 Market St, which will replace a gas station on the corner of Market and 15th streets, calls for a 6,300 square foot on the ground floor. But Forest City is seeking to convert the straight retail into a mix of retail and eating and drinking establishments, according to public documents.

The Official Line on the LineaSF

LineaSF Update

Just as yours truly got a sneak peek at The Century SF this week, another new, triangular-shaped condo building, is also taking shape. Here’s the latest from Linnea SF:

Delivery of Linea homes is tentatively scheduled for late Jan/Early Feb 2014 according to our contact there.

How To Get In First

The best positioning for would-be buyers is to reach out to someone like yours truly and we can then approach and secure a pre-qualification where the lender could do a rate lock. The sales office is reportedly doing a soft open this weekend and should be open to the public shortly thereafter.

Preferred Lender List

In case you don’t remember in condos and especially new condos, at least for the first half of sales — maybe even more than 1/2 the units — folks financing a purchase will have to use one of the lenders listed. From the list below, you get the usual suspects.

Why these folks only?
You might be asking yourself how come. Here’s how I understand it: other lenders will not fund on a building where one party — here, the developer — owns the majority of the units. It all has to do with debt obligations and priority of creditors should things go really South. Those other creditors may get first dibs and whatever assets can be liquidated leaving the other smaller ones with nothing.

Kitchen Remodel as Progress … Or public health risk?

From this week’s Sunday NYTimes:

Many of the safety issues of yesterday’s kitchens are gone. No one in my family is likely to tumble into an open hearth. But new kitchens pose a more subtle danger to our health by doubling as a comfortable social, entertainment and eating hub. Retail marketers have long known that when tempting food is within close range of our eyes or nose, we tend to eat more of it. In our new kitchens, it’s just too darn easy to get to addictive snacks and calorie-rich drinks.

Curbed SF : The San Francisco Neighborhoods and Real Estate Blog

The long long long-time coming Dolores Park renovations have just gotten their umpteenth revision. After a thousand community meetings that covered everything from dog run areas to toilet design, the plan went back to the Planning Department last year for some tweaks. Community members were afraid tweaks would turn into major changes, but in the end there were only four mentionable differences.

Doelger Home Styles – Western Neighborhoods Project – San Francisco History

When Henry Doelger built and sold his first house in 1925 thousands of San Francisco homes were constructed with elements of Spanish, French, and Italian Revival style. Doelger’s homes stayed in line with his competitors: stucco exteriors, barrel-fronts over recessed garage entries, stairways open to the sky, red tile roofline accents, and various generic bas-relief decorations.
