San Francisco New Developments And Luxury High Rise Condominiums

A Look At Some New Developments Popping Up Around Town

San Francisco median home sales prices have increased dramatically since 2012. Beginning from a low-$600k with an average price per sqft of mid-$500, and then accelerating in the first half of 2013 close to $800k with an average price of mid-$600 per sq ft, to almost $1M mediam home sales price and $800+ per sq ft currently. To say San Francisco and the Bay Area are in the midst of a very dramatic recovery would be considered a very large understatement.

Thankfully, new development is soaring once again, generally in the form of large new condo projects (many of which have already sold out), so if you’re deciding whether to buy a new condo, and paying $1000+ per sq ft for brand new everything, here is a list of the hot new developments that are changing various districts of San Francisco.

The highly anticipated Amero, in Cow Hollow, has 27 Units. Sadly, they’re all sold out before construction completes in Q4 of this year.
