St. Regis Penthouse Was $70,000,000, Now $35,000,000. Yes, That’s Correct – $35,000,000 Less.

The original “asking” price for the 20,000 square foot St. Regis Penthouse (188 Minna), was $70,000,000, and at that price it was only slightly ambitious. Now at 50% less or $35,000,000 and still not officially “listed” on MLS, I expect all but one of the buyers in San Francisco to be able to qualify for this property.
According to the Wall Street Journal, this penthouse is “likely the most expensive bank-owned, single-family residential real estate listing in the country.” If that doesn’t get all of you first time buyers looking for a deal and to purchase foreclosed property to jump at this opportunity, perhaps the description will: Six bedrooms, 12 bathrooms, four fireplaces, a library and a home theater. The living room has 22-foot-high ceilings and an entrance foyer with a two-story waterfall feature. There’s also a 2,500-square-foot master suite with a gym, sauna and steam room and 3,000 square feet of terraces with views of the city and the bay.
Because you always ask…and I’m always happy to share, “The apartment was built by real-estate investment manager and developer Victor MacFarlane, who purchased three apartment shells then combined them into one large finished unit. He sold it back to the bank in a deed in lieu of foreclosure after it failed to sell after several price cuts. The unit is now owned by Second Step Asset Management, a subsidiary of Bank of America.”

And it could be yours for $35,000,000…chump change.

    THIS SEEMS A WEE BIT OVERPRICED. I JUST WATCHED, “SELLING NEW YORK,” LAST NIGHT AND EVEN THEIR UBER EXPENSIVE SPACES ARE MUCH MORE REASONABLE. IT’S VERY NICE, BUT PERHAPS IT WOULD BEST BE A BUSINESS OF SOME KIND. A GALLERY? WINE TASTING ROOM(S)? A RENTED SPOT FOR COMPANY PARTIES? IT WOULD MAKE A FANTASTIC HOLIDAY PARTY SPOT!

    They always clean the windows right before they show these. In 2 weeks you are living behind dirty windows and don’t even want to look out until the cleaners come again in 6 months!

    I was never allowed to go in that section of town when I was growing up…south of Market st. was not the type of area you would walk alone down the street. I know it has cleaned up a bit but the “bad image” is still ingrained in my head.

    Too much open space, very commercial looking which does not give the warmth feeling of a home. For 35m , I rather buy 10 different homes around the country which makes more investment sense.

    Oh boy another modern style office building masquerading as a home. If I had thirty five mill I dont think I would spend it on that place. It looks like about a thousand other places ive seen in NYC and on all of those cheesy home decorating shows. Modern is so overrated, its been done to death. I think colonial, victorian, and renaissance style is much more interesting.

    SF is dirty, anyone who visited other “countries” than California can say that! Not to mention SOMA … full of weirdos, homeless, drug addicts and dealers.

    Plus, what a mindless idiot would pay $35 mil. to come out of their superluxurious penthouse into the filth of SOMA and the fog and wind and cold of SF?.. With $35 mil. you can buy a real house in Paris. for example …

    Stephen is on to something! It would be great to have a few houses in other parts of our great nation (West, Mid-West, East, North & South) for what you would pay for “one” house in SF! The property Tax & Maintenace could also be covered with a $35 Million Dollar EXPENSE ACCOUNT on homes that aren’t SKY SCRAPERS “or” PENTHOUSES! When I think of a PROPERTY that cost $35-70 Million Dollars…I think MANSION, ACRES OF LAND & A STAFF THAT COMES ALONG WITH THE LAVISH MANSION! What ever happened to what $35-70 Million Dollars COULD GET YOU? Is this just in Cities…states like SF, NY, CT…where the houses are “OVERLY PRICED”????
    In NC,GA,TN several parts of TX you would get a lavish ESTATE HOME in the ritzy part of town or private grounds (your choice), (Staff)Home,a guest house, Two Cabanas,a few servants AND acres of land for $35-70 Milllion Dollars.
    ENOUGH SAID!

    I cannot get this place off my mind since seeing it a year ago. It would be my fondest dream to own it Come on, 20,000 sq feet of penthouse is almost unattainable ANYWHERE in the world!

    And with six limos in your underground parking space, you are NOT going to have to worry about walikng around a ‘dirty’ neighborhood.

    (Has anyone got a clue anyway, at how upscale SOMA has become)

    Well this usually happens with the wealth from across the globe always buying property in the top urban areas. Carlos Slim wealthiest man fin world from MExico has been buying property throughout city. Google Brats have been overpaying for condominiums. Wealth wants diversity, safety, and to live with their own.
