Checking In At 829 Folsom


The awesome roof deck is my favorite part about 829 Folsom, the 69-unit development on Folsom between 4th and 5th Streets (and across the street from one of my favorite restaurants, Zero Zero). The sales office has been up and running since last year, and has experienced an uptick lately in buyer activity. That’s not surprising, as 829 Folsom and One Hawthorne are about the only new-construction properties on the market at the moment.

I visited 829 Folsom this week with clients to look at one-bedroom condos. Though the units are not huge, they are well appointed and have efficient floor plans. The kitchens feature European cabinetry, polished slab granite counters, and gas cooktops. Bathrooms have marble flooring, wood cabinetry and designer-polished chrome fixtures. (Plus Toto toilets!)

Here’s a breakdown on pricing for some of the units that remain:

One Bedroom:  This home has an open floor plan with a galley kitchen.  The bedroom is privately nestled off the living area and features bathroom en suite. Some levels offer breathtaking views of downtown.  #512: $441,850 / 505 sq. ft./ HOA $462.71 per month

One Bedroom + 1 Car Parking  This plan features an open living area. The bedroom and bathroom are nicely separated by a closet featuring a washer/dryer.  The floor-to-ceiling windows face east, offering great morning sunlight.  #706:  $557,100 / 675 sq ft / HOA $524.45 per month

One Bedroom + Den + 1 Car Parking: This home has an open den at the front of the home which creates an entry into the living area.  The bedroom features bathroom en suite.  Facing Folsom Street, it features a partial city view and offers natural sun light in both the living and bedroom areas.  #702:  $573,850 / 757 sq ft / HOA $534.23 per month

One Bedroom + Den + 1 Car Parking: This plan features a proper entry with the living area and bedroom on opposite sides of the home.  The living room, facing Folsom Street, offers partial city views while the bedroom looks out into the courtyard. #600: $577,100  / 812 sq ft / HOA $542.33 per month

Two Bedroom / Two Bathroom+ 1 Car Parking: This plan is “T” shaped featuring a proper entry with the bedrooms on opposites sides of the home separated by common space.   Both the living room and master bedroom are south-facing oriented towards Shipley Street.  This home offers views from the living area and master bedroom, which features an en suite bathroom.  The second bedroom faces the interior courtyard.  #618: $739,000  / 931 sq ft / HOA dues $557.83 per month

HOA fees cover water, garbage, grounds maintenance, door person and property management. You have the option of refusing parking and taking a certain amount off the purchase price.

829 Folsom is in a location that allows for easy public transportation and freeway access, and the building has a 94 “Walker’s Paradise” Walk Score. Whole Foods is right around the corner at 4th and Harrison, and there are tons of restaurants nearby. You can also easily bike or stroll to the Embarcadero and Ferry Building, or stroll around the corner to the Museum of Modern Art.

Give me shout if you’d like to tour remaining inventory.
