[Top, mailboxes arrive at Mint Collection. Below, the roofdeck, with an arrow pointing to the spa-to-be.]
When we surveyed the progress at Mint Plaza in the SoMa/Tenderloin DMZ on Friday, we promised an update on Mint Collection, the high-end residential retrofitting that's been underway on the site for awhile. First up, some stats from the folks at the Martin Building Co.: they've got 16 units left, but all are one-bedrooms and studios. We toured a model one-bedroom on the ninth floor that's on the market for $1.045 million (for 1,098 square feet), and found ourselves quite taken with the stained concrete flooring and the overall layout of the unit. And then, of course, there was the roof.
Inside the model apartment on the ninth floor. Quite the bachelor pad, really.
The kitchen cabinets in the model unit. Oh, and the model tulips.
What is a roofdeck without a massive gas grill? Not seen: the dog-run on the other side of the roof. No, really.
The view from the roof, to the horizon—and, uh, other monolithic new developments.
