It’s going to be a black and orange evening, and whether or not the Giants can buck historical and statistical trends and win Game 7 of the World Series in Kansas City remains to be seen. While I don’t know much about Baseball, I know that regardless of what happens tonight this Friday evening will involve free candy. And lots of it. I also happen to know a lot about new construction homes in SF, so I’ll switch gears to a new construction update. Get in touch if you’d like to learn more about the buildings that seem to be the home runs and those that are walking their way towards the finish line.
35 Dolores is moving full speed ahead, with scaffolding down and the exterior beginning to take shape. The bronze/burnt orange color feels to me like it probably has a bit more “staying power” than the orange we’ve seen on some of the other buildings (yes, 2299 Market, I’m thinking of you). Homes in the development are moving quickly, and occupancy is still slated for before the end of 2014. If a new home in the heart of central SF is on your shopping list, get in touch and we can update you with the specifics of particular homes, floor plans, and prices at 35 Dolores.
Across town at The Arden, the un-official city bird is hard at work. The building is pretty much sold out, but with long escrows things happen. If living in a brand new home in Mission Bay is important to you, let us know and we can work our network of off-market and private listing opportunities to see if something might be possible.
The Vida in the Mission continues to sell, and occupancy is slated for early 2015 (January), which keeps them on track with their original scheduled completion timeframe. The developer has updated the building address to reflect the fact that the building entrance will be on Barlett – the official mailing address for the building will be 45 Bartlett St. The building has both one and two bedroom homes remaining, some with nice north facing (downtown) views. It’s a changing neighborhood, and if you’d like to be a part of the change, our team can help make that a reality.
8 Octavia, meanwhile, is the closest of the current new construction buildings to new-resident occupancy. If all goes as planned, new owners will be getting their key fobs and moving in November. The building has a great selection of homes, and if you are looking for modern, minimalist, and Hayes Valley it’s the only game in town.
The Amero in Cow Hollow just announced that they’ve passed the 50% sold mark – no surprise given the relatively scarcity of new construction on the north end of town. We had the opportunity to attend an exclusive tour a few weeks ago, and we’d be happy to share the additional information we learned.
