Back in June we gandered at these mammoth penthouses roosting atop an Eichler tower at 999 Green Street, on sale after the deaths of previous owners Charles and George Shultz–more on that here if those names don’t ring an immediate bell. Now both of those penthouses have a buyer and even a record to go … Continue reading Soaring Eichler Condo Sales Kinda-Sorta Breaks Record
We keep hearing that SF condos are in decline. It’s a plausible idea; as we’ve noted already, condos are virtually all the city has built these last ten years, and they’ve proven fairly sensitive to market ups and downs in the past. That said, anecdotes and speculation don’t punch the clock, so let’s see what … Continue reading SF Condos Are Taking Longer To Sell. Does It Matter?
In our comprehensive history of Bay Area developer Joseph Eichler’s legacy, we wrote that Eichler was an everyman builder who created attainable homes for middle class buyers. And indeed he was. However. Everyone’s got to branch out now and then, which is how we ended up with the top floor units at 999 Green Street, … Continue reading Maximum Luxury: Soaring Eichler Penthouses For Sale After Decades
This is Maximum Luxury, a column where we nose around listings for some of the most expensive properties in San Francisco history, for no other reason than that we simply can’t resist.

“Millennium Towers [sic] is one of the most luxurious condominium buildings in San Francisco,” this new listing boasts, and in all fairness that is actually true; we’ve been in that building a lot, it runs like a self-contained, vertical neighborhood, the hype is definitely real. But that of course is not what people associate this … Continue reading Are “Leaning Tower” Condos Worth Top Dollar?
Former churches and other houses of worship can be tricky housing development prospects: They’re often located on prime residential real estate in popular neighborhoods, but they they also often need a lot of work, and in many cases are historically protected properties in SF. Because of their spacious interiors, churches-turned-condos frequently end up looking like … Continue reading Onetime Mission Church Converts For $1.55M
This is Maximum Luxury, a weekly column peering at listings for some of San Francisco’s most expensive homes, purely for the sake of indulgence. Quite honestly, there are not very many things in the world that are actually worth $15 million; if you had to spend that much money for some reason, it can be … Continue reading Maximum Luxury: Classic ’20s Double-Decker Penthouse Asks $15M
Some homes you just can’t bear the thought of parting with. But 550 Innes Avenue #101 is evidently not one of them, at least not in the eyes of the guy who just bought it. This one bed, one bath Shipyard condo just sold three days after Christmas for a tidy $525,000 (about normal for … Continue reading Shipyard Condo Sells for Half Million, Instantly Goes Back Up For Sale
Welcome back to Maximum Luxury, the weekly column where we peer at some of San Francisco’s most expensive homes, just for the heck of it. Ordinarily we feature listings still on the market in this space, but sometimes a unit we’ve had our eye on up and sells out from under us before we can … Continue reading Maximum Luxury: Big-Time East Cut Building Finally Makes Big Sale
Start packing very, very small bags, because there’s a new listing at Cubix, San Francisco’s most economically sized condo development. The unit at 766 Harrison Street, #506 is a 279 square foot studio, retailing for $379,000; that of course is a tiny sum of money in SF condo terms, so little that usually only subsidized … Continue reading Explaining Cubix, the SoMa Building With Tiny $379K Condos
Even if you don’t know the name, everyone in San Francisco immediately recognizes MIRA, the twisting, Studio Gang-designed high-rise that opened in 2020 at 280 Spear Street–there’s no overlooking it. Just this week, a brand new MIRA unit listed for sale, a three bed, three bath condo on the 32nd floor asking just under $5 … Continue reading We Looked at All 391 MIRA Condos To Figure Out What’s Up With This Building
Here we have a new listing for a three bed, two bath condo at 66 Cleary Court #305 that drops a tantalizing name, calling this an “Eichler-designed condo.” Is it true? Joseph Eichler did not create many homes in San Francisco compared to his work in Southern California and the larger Bay Area, but there … Continue reading A $1 Million SF Eichler Condo? It’s Real
It’s time again for Maximum Luxury, the feature where we pause to gawk at the most prohibitively expensive home listings in San Francisco simply because it’s in our nature to stare at them.

The number six unit at 2500 Steiner Street just sold for the intimidating sum of $15.5 million. That paces out to $4,428 per square foot. SFGate calls this the highest price per foot in San Francisco–but it’s not so. City records confirm that 2600 Washington #10 previously sold for more than $5,600 per foot ($32 … Continue reading This Pac Heights Co-Op Did NOT Just Set an SF Record
When it comes to writing home listings, we probably shouldn’t be too particular about the terms that realtors use–after all, they’re trying to make their offerings stand out, and most superlatives are in the eye of the beholder. Nevertheless, you’ve really got to pause over something like the new listing for 1 Daniel Burnham Court … Continue reading Will Van Ness Avenue Ever Get Its Due?
