Construction is well underway on the Heritage on Fillmore a set of 80 1, 2, and 3-bedroom condominiums located above the Fillmore Heritage Center; 68 will sell at at market rate (prices en route), and 12 are considered so-called "affordable" units. The amenities are enviable— or more unique than the average condo zoo, at least. Yoshi's Jazz Club and Japanese Restaurant has migrated from Jack London Square into the first floor of the building; it is set to open at month's end. 1300, an upscale soul food joint (which we haven't field tested yet, but suspect will throw some competition at Farmer Brown) is already up and running. The Jazz Heritage Center art gallery, replete with historical vignettes and screening room also grace the ground floor— a nice break from the humdrum retail-and-restaurant combo. A 24-hour door man, private parking, and 10,000 sq. ft. terrace round out the deal. And check the insidiously antagonistic tag line that graces the website. "You don't have to settle for warehouses and empty ball parks ..." No, you most definitely do not.
UPDATE— A hawk swept in and dropped the prices: unit PH1E (1bed/1bath, 749 sq ft)—$715K; unit #402 (2bed/2bath, 1211 sq ft)— $749K; unit #1003 (2bed/2bath, 1115 sq ft)— $855K; unit #301 (3bed/2.5 baths, 1513 sq ft)— $985K. Not too bad.
