San Francisco’s Crop of Upscale Condos Launching This Fall

Dogpatch and Mid-Market buildings pay homage to past with original brick facade, stained glass

After a slow summer in San Francisco, the fall has started with condo inventory down a bit, too. But according to a recent report from Paragon Real Estate there’s likely to be an increase in luxury resale apartments and houses coming to the market in the coming months.

And for both new and resale condos, buyers can expect to pay top dollar. As Paragon reported this month, the three-month rolling median sales price for a condo in the city was $1.16 million for condos, with the average price per square foot value $1,056, as of Sept. 1.

The crop of new developments hitting the market this fall found certain architectural design elements from former buildings that stood on the land to conserve. At 815 Tennessee, the developers maintained an original brick façade as a departure from the more common sight of an all-glass exterior. Meanwhile, stained-glass windows give Stage 1075 a unique look that sets it apart from neighboring developments. While the two developments are modern and full of the amenities that discerning city dwellers have come to expect, there still exists nods to the city’s heritage.

This new batch of 69 condos is situated on Tennessee Street between 19th and 20th streets and nestled between Potrero Point on the San Francisco Bay to the east and Esprit Park to the west. With the same development team behind 8 Octavia, 450 Hayes, and 400 Grove (DM Development) and the same interior designers that have their hands in many of new condo buildings across the city (Edmonds + Lee Architects), 815 Tennessee has the same high-design quality as many neighboring buildings.

The original brick façade of the former factory that occupied the site was maintained in the design by the developers. The five-story building offers an entry courtyard, lobby, and rooftop terrace for residents to enjoy. Residents and the public alike can make use of the “pocket park” on the property. Inside, the units range from 591 to 1,244 square feet. Construction is expected to be completed in early 2018.
