Arquitectonica’s One Mission Bay tops out in San Francisco!

Very exciting news for a city in extreme need for more housing units. The One Mission project is a great one and should prove a favorite for those taking a chance on a virtually brand new neighborhood in our great city. Just a few years ago, Mission Bay was empty lots and open land. What a difference 5 years can make.

One Mission Bay

Welcome One Mission Bay to our list of outstanding new residential buildings brought to market in recent years!

One Mission Bay 4

A beautiful entrance welcoming home owners and guests into the tastefully appointed One Mission Bay residences.

One Mission Bay 3

What a great place to call home. Imagine yourself taking advantage of the comforts afforded to you as a home owner in one of the city’s new condo buildings.

One Mission Bay 2

A tranquil setting along Mission Creek where homeowners who have North-facing views can take in the sites of the city just a stone’s throw away. Those folks will also be able to see views of our baseball stadium, AT&T Park.

More Subways in San Francisco? I hope so.

Reading a recent article from Cory Weinberg, reporter at the SF Business Times, I was struck by the importance of a more modernized and updated transportation system in the city of San Francisco, especially pertaining to subways.

As a former New Yorker, I couldn’t imagine life without a subway system. Then, I move to San Francisco and quickly found out what life was like without one. It is my opinion, but I feel as though this city could greatly benefit from a fully integrated subway system.

Obviously, there are reasons why it has been difficult to do this in the past, namely, the difficulty in structural integrity that makes digging and creating things underground. I get that. But, the subway that is currently being dug that ends in Chinatown makes no sense to me. In my opinion (I have a few of these), not connecting the new subway to the F line in the Wharf makes absolutely no sense whatsoever. If we connected them we could have one large loop that could potentially bring many more people to the tourist areas as well as reduce traffic congestion. Heck, I’d likely use it too and I usually walk downtown from my home in North Beach.

I have no experience in city planning and do not pretend to. What I do know is that if we don’t take the steps to modernize this city and bring it up to date we run the risk of losing a lot of profit to help its citizens and also stay lagging in making getting around our city that much tougher as population grows. We must resist the urge to stay the “old San Francisco” and do what helps our progress in 2015 and beyond. We aren’t going to lose our “charm” by building a better way of life for our residents and visitors.

Again, this is just my opinion…

I support the efforts of those trying to make this city a better place. Please read the article to hear the full story.

The “Boom” is coming! Are you ready?

As we reach the final stretch to this event, a quick reminder of who is speaking and why it is so important for anyone involved in the real estate business in or around the Bay Area to be there. We look forward to seeing you on Friday for this incredible panel discussion and a fun and celebratory reception at the SF Jazz Center!

The “Building Boom” series came about 2 years ago when the SFAR’s Member Education committee concluded that it was imperative that the real estate community in San Francisco and the Bay Area stayed current on what was being built, where it was being built, who the players where and how it effected us as real estate professionals as well as our clients. We asked other key organizations in our community like The Women’s Council of RealtorsCREAAAREAA, and YPN for help in creating the areas’ best event for our members and the Building Boom was born.

This session will mark our 3rd semi-annual event and it’s the greatest one yet. We have some of the areas greatest experts in real estate sales, development, city planning, economics, and the real estate press. And, for the first time, we are offering seats to those who are non-members of SFAR (San Francisco Association of Realtors) and our affiliate associations.

The event will be followed by a reception to celebrate with friends, make new connections, and discuss your ideas and thoughts about real estate in our great city.

Is love in the cards for Google and The Shipyard?

It’s just a matter of time before this part of San Francisco is a highly flourishing area with jobs and beautiful homes. The question is who will help build it and how long will it take? Moves like the potential Google investment could really help to expedite this.

EXCLUSIVE: Google eyes S.F.’s Hunters Point Shipyard for future office space

As always, I’m always suggesting to my more pioneering clients that this is an area to invest in. As someone who invested in areas like South Harlem in the early 2000s, I can tell you from experience that it’s always best to buy or build early than too late.

Trumark Urban to bring 2 new condo buildings to SF

Starting as I often do with my San Francisco real estate blog, We Need More Housing! This statement still rings true in just about every corner of this fine city. Thankfully, a handful of new condos go into sales mode this year and more that will begin that process in the early part of 2016.

Two projects I’d like to bring to your attention today are two that have already broken ground thanks to Trumark Urban: Knox, a 91-Unit condo building located at 645 Texas Street in the Dogpatch and Rowan, a 70-unit condo building located at 346 Potrero Avenue, consider the Inner Mission.

Dogpatch/Inner Mission Condos

Both of these projects will begin their sales process in the Spring of 2016 and both estimate completion in the Fall of 2016 which means that owners should expect to move in late 2016. The Dogpatch currently has 5+ multifamily project currently in the works and, in my humble opinion, is poised for some serious growth and appreciation for current homeowners in the area. Many exciting things are happening in this area so keep your eyes peeled for a lot more to come.

San Francisco SoMa High-Rise Boom

It’s an exciting time to be part of the growth of our SoMa and Mid-Market areas. With 16+ projects in the works, and more on the way, our fine city is finally growing up. Some may argue that this type of growth will ruin the “charm” of San Francisco. In my opinion, there will always be plenty of charm to go around. However, San Francisco is in need of change that is long overdue. We have a window of opportunity that closes day by day that we need to take advantage of. If not, opportunity will go to cities that are willing to change and grow with the times.

72 Townsend Once Again Underway

Works Commences on Delayed South Beach Condo Conversion. I’m truly looking forward to seeing this project completed. It’s going to be a great addition to our South Beach neighborhood. The one-story warehouse is the former home of Hooper’s South End Grain Warehouse, which survived the 1906 San Francisco’s earthquake. It will bring 74 new homes to our market and is slated to be completed in the summer of 2015:

Why San Francisco is Not New York

I’m from New York and have been in San Francisco now for just shy of 8 years. I love this article. It rings true in so many ways. Truth is, I don’t want San Francisco to be New York and, quite frankly, I don’t think it ever will be. Thank goodness…
