I attended a friends and neighbors party at the Mission’s new 555 Bartlett last night. The building isn’t quite complete, but it’s pretty obvious that it will cater to what San Francisco buyers need—reasonably priced units with parking in a central, increasingly hip location.
The 58-unit development is located at the corner of Mission and Cesar Chavez and features a mix of predominantly one- and two-bedroom condos.
The developer is pricing Bartlett in a very appealing price range for new construction—and for a majority of San Francisco buyers. The one bedrooms will start in the $400,000s, and the two bedrooms will be listed in the mid-$500,000s. There are a handful of three-bedroom units in the $600,000s, and a few studios. Many of the one bedrooms, some with studies, face the 26th Street side of the project, which will be quieter. The two bedrooms face Cesar Chavez.
The two-bedroom model is staged a bit more whimsically, and also includes a painted “brick wall” :
Finishes are quite nice for the price point, and include quartz countertops, Bosch gas range, microwave and dishwasher, and Kohler faucets. Most units have small balconies or decks, and are pre-wired for ceiling fans and alarm systems.
There’s also an approximately 11,000-square foot interior courtyard, bike storage, an elevator, and a Walgreens on the ground level. Parking comes with each unit, but those opting for no parking can chop $40,000 off the purchase price. HOA dues will range from $270-$350/mo.
The location is extremely convenient for downtown and Peninsula commuters. BART is three blocks north on Mission, and 280 or 101 are about two minutes away. You can also walk one block to Valencia and find yourself a stone’s throw from Pi Bar, Anthony’s Cookies, and Beretta. Or head south on Mission and hit El Rio, Blue Plate, Good Frikin’ Chicken, Emmy’s Spaghetti Shack, the Front Porch, and Safeway.
Though not yet ready to be shown to the public, 555 Bartlett will open soon. And don’t get too put off by the existing exterior colors; I’m told they are primer for the final color scheme.
555 Bartlett is also approved for FHA loans.
Let me know if you’d like to schedule an appointment before the masses get through the doors.
