Millennium Tower: Dem some views, eh?

Since we’re on the subject of Millennium Tower, and their apparent record price per square foot, we thought we’d share some more good stuff.

We know, we know… you’ve seen the daytime views from the top of Millennium Tower in the papers, on other blogs, and everywhere else in between, but we all know the true partyers come out at night. Right?

Views towards Berkeley/Oakland (East)

Views towards Marin (Northwest)

Views towards San Jose (South/Southeast)

You can rest assured those views are from, or close to, the top.

Feeling BLŪ (631 Folsom): Step inside!

Until now, we had not seen inside the new world unfolding down at BLŪ, yet another San Francisco upscale condo development. Thankfully, we have friends in high places (we’re waiting on that balloon story we alluded to). We can all pay homage to zūm llc for their wonderful renderings. Enjoy your First Look ™ inside BLŪ!

The development will be one hundred eight condominium units total, and there will be six residences per floor. On the top will be six two-story penthouses with private roof decks, and glass walled solariums.

Units will feature:

-Floor to ceiling wraparound corner windows

-Wood floors in foyers, kitchens, and living/dining areas

-Kitchens will have granite counters, high quality cabinetry, Viking stainless steel appliances

-Master baths to have dual marble vanities and frameless glass shower enclosures (ooh la la!)

So we’ve been inside virtually and verbally, now when do we get inside literally…seriously?

$605,000 less than it was (2801 Lake)… actually $1,205,000 less.

Originally listed at $4.2M in 2003, 2801 Lake was hacked to $3.6M and just recently hacked again to the current price of $2,995,000. That is a MAJOR reduction that may or may not indicate something about the market, but it sure as hell indicates something about staging and getting your home ready to sell.

There were so many of these rooms, it was hard to pick just one, so I went with the picture medley. Now I’ll go bandage my bleeding lips, as I had to bite them so hard to refrain from commenting. Maybe we should see who can come up with the best caption for each photo. Photos 1-4, starting on the top.

Happy Friday!

[Update: Sold for $2,580,000 on 12/18/2007]

One Rincon Hill: Topping off at 631ft. with a picture and VIDEO medley from the 59th & 41st floors.

I had the distinct pleasure of being invited to the “topping off ceremony” at One Rincon Hill this morning. There were quite a few notables in attendance, including Mr. Willie Brown (da mayor), the architects, and a few others, which I’ll note next week when I revise this post. For now, I thought you’d enjoy some pictures and video of the inside, outside, views, and elevator ride to the 59th, and 41st floors. Enjoy…The views were INSANE! (Click the thumbnails for larger images.)

NEW POST IS UP WITH MORE/DIFFERENT PHOTOS FROM THIS POST

Going up One Rincon Hill construction elevator with Willie Brown in the house!

Getting to the top of the elevator on the 59th floor…white knuckled

What goes up, must come down…and finally figured out the best shot.

These are undoubtedly some of the first images you are seeing of this, so please if you take them, claim your source, and link back to here.

Lots more unobstructed view pics to come next week, as well as descriptions of these pictures. For now…I have to get out of town. Thanks for checking them out. Oh…that is Julie with the hat, which is now in the time capsule.

Thanks!

p.s. Apologies for the raw video…

zūm llc: a 3D “picture medley”

Ever hear the Jane’s Addiction song, “L.A. Medley”? If not, you should. We recently discovered zūm llc as the company that has done some 3D renderings for some of the new developments around town (The Potrero, Blū, Fairmont Heritage Place at Ghirardelli Square, 733 Front Street) and we decided they are deserving of our first “picture medley”. We’re always happy to support local businesses, so we contacted them, they replied, and you get to…ENJOY!

Fairmont Heritage Place at Ghirardelli Square:

Pretty Impressive isn’t it?

Some bullet points describing in brief what zūm llc does for the owner/developer…

In most cases they are retained directly by the owner/developer to assist the clients’ design and marketing teams for:

·Sales & Marketing

·Pre sales and Pre leasing

·Feasibility and Environmental studies

·Investor review process

·Design review process

·Government review process

As a person in the real estate business, with clients that sometimes make purchases solely off of pictures (myself included…not recommended, but common), the old saying a picture is worth a thousand words holds true. Now I can say a high-res 3D picture is worth two thousand words. Thanks to zūm llc for enlightening us.

We’ll get some information for you regarding Blū, and the Fairmont, and an update on the Potrero and 733 Front as soon as we can. We might also add that we “are the only blog that has these images right now“, so if you’re seeing them somewhere else, remember you saw them here first. Now, go back up and look at those pictures again. You deserve it.
