The Century (2200 Market St), another lux new build on Market St near the intersections of 15th and Sanchez in the Castro, is nearing completion. The Biscuit has followed its progress since inception and now can offer readers a look at the floor plans of these soon to be for sale units.
The first floor of the building will be devoted to new retail/restaurant leasing space. The 22, one and two bedroom units housed within the rest of the five-story build are stuffed with goodies and available options according to The Century’s website marketing. Most other new builds along the Octavia Corridor have only released interior teasers of soon to be for sale or rental units as the building neared the finish line. The Century chose a different tack and made available each of its units floor plans for perspective owners. Perhaps this unusual effort is meant to whet the whistle of as many potential buyers as possible in the current insatiable, money seems to be no object, tech-boom fueled, San Francisco housing market.
Exact prices of units haven’t been released as of post time. But, if the building follows current neighborhood trends, what you’ll get for the expected Castro average of about $1,000 per square foot isn’t too much outside the range of any of the other new apartment buildings built in the ‘Stro since 2010.
What is a bit unusual is that quite a number of the units for sale have a triangle-shaped floor plan. Granted, not mind-blowing architecturally, but compared to the seemingly generic, 700 square foot boxes being sold for $900K at buildings nearby like ICON it could be considered a step up.
The sales office hasn’t opened yet, but is expected to within the next few weeks. Interested parties can contact Vanguard Properties. Scroll through the pix provided below in the gallery to get the full idea of what’s available. There are no below market rate (BMR) units at this location. Developers opted to contribute to the City’s affordable housing fund instead of having on site BMR units.
