Our reader, who sounds very similar to a few other readers we have ;-) was apparently at the opening of The Greenwich, a new development on the cusp of Russian Hill and Cow Hollow, and had this to say:
Was at the Grand Opening of “The Greenwich” and it was a ZOO. Maybe 500 people in 45 minutes? Lots of foreigners from Europe and Asia all clamoring for $1,000-$1,600/sqft prices. Interesting.
Don’t believe the exact number of people through, and certainly don’t picture a bunch of French or Italians crawling over each other to sign contracts (that only happens during the World Cup), but take note that it was apparently pretty busy.
The Grand Opening was indeed this weekend, and we plan on checking them out tomorrow. For details on the property, please go to their website.
