luminasf1

Pricing (Phase 1):
-Studios: approximately 650 square feet, from $695,000 to $825,000
-1BR: approximately 850 to 870 square feet (Tower) and approximately 880 to 1100 square feet (Plaza), from $865,000 to $1,150,000,

Currently no offers are being accepted, but will be considered starting Monday 9/29/14 by noon thru Friday 10/3/14. There are currently ONLY 52 units on offer in ONLY two of the buildings (as stated). After this release, they expect a much larger release of units in the second phase, and pricing will not be the same.

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.

San Francisco New-Housing Construction Trends

San Francisco New-Housing Construction Trends

Within its 47 square mile envelope, San Francisco is already
the 2nd most densely populated city in the United States,
and it’s growing denser, more affluent and more expensive.

May 2014 report with 13 custom charts

The following charts are mostly based on the San Francisco Planning Department’s excellent Housing Inventory and Pipeline reports, which can be accessed using the links at the bottom of this article. Quotes below are excerpted from these reports.

Packed with information, the data in one report section will not always agree perfectly with that in another – due to the multiple sources of data used by the Planning Department – and this is reflected in our charts as well. In the complex, lengthy process of application and review, public hearings (and, lately, ballot proposals), revisions, entitlement, permitting, construction and completion, how and when a project is counted may vary. Housing units are being built and being removed, and there are so many types: rental or sale, market rate or affordable, social-project housing or luxury condominiums.

Last but not least, this landscape is in constant flux: new projects, plan changes, and shifts in economic and political realities. Everything below is simply a good faith estimate. The basic reality is that San Francisco, after its recent 2008-2012 new-construction slump, is now experiencing a building boom. So far, however, it has not been able to keep up with population growth and rising buyer/renter demand.

 

New construction authorized typically will not show up as housing units completed until later years. And, of course, a developer can decide not to build after authorization if market circumstances change. The post-2008 drop in authorizations is clearly illustrated here.

“Some of the larger projects completed in 2013 include: 1190 Mission Street (355 market-rate units and 63 affordable units), Rincon Green (277 market rate units and 49 affordable units), Nema (279 market rate units and 38 affordable units).”

“Very large projects (200 units or more) filed in 2013 and are under Planning Department review include: Mission Rock (1,500 units); 150 Van Ness Avenue (429 units); 41 Tehama Street (398 units); 1066 Market (330 units); 950 Market Street (316 units); and 1301 16th Street (276 units).”

————————————————–

A glance at the recent past, the present and the possible future of new housing construction in the city. New projects are continually entering and moving through the pipeline, and existing plans may be changed or even abandoned.

“There are currently 857 projects in the pipeline. Of these, 74 percent are exclusively residential and 17 percent are mixed-use projects with both residential and commercial components. Only 8 percent of projects are non-residential developments. A net total of 50,400 new housing units would be added to the city’s housing stock according to current data. Around 18 percent of all projects, representing 6,000 net added housing units and 2,750,000 sq. ft. of commercial space, are under construction. Around 20 percent of projects (with another 4,200 net units and 3.8 million sq. ft. of commercial space) have received building permit approvals. As of the time of writing, some may have moved to the construction phase.”
