For every story about rent drops, there's a little push-back from people who just don't see it. Here's one apartment in SoMa's Beacon that bears that out, at least. The largest 1-bedroom 1-bath in the building, Unit 528 "is different from all others" because it's the biggest at 875 square feet, it has a built-in wall bed (it's like having TWO bedrooms), built-in office space, "exotic" Brazilian Cherry flooring, and an "exceptionally large" bathroom. Perks: free parking, gym, clubhouse, heated lap pool, etc. You pay: $2,499 a month. Thank god rents are dropping, eh?
