I spoke with The Chronicle’s Robert Selna about a new project being planned for South of Market—a prefab building on a parking lot at 38 Harriet (at Howard). The eco-friendly concept is appealing, as well as the idea of affordable housing ($200,000-$275,000/unit). However, these units will be 310-340 square feet. Read today’s Chron article for all the details.
Are these microcondos big enough for the average San Francisco buyer? Perhaps. I can’t, however, put aside how things turned out for Cubix—the building that featured tiny units in the same price range. The project fell victim to foreclosure, but is somewhat back on track. Still, not exactly a stellar model for 38 Harriet to follow.
Will 38 Harriet come out on top?
