Unit 401 at 736 Valencia Street popped onto the market today at $1.05M. The Ipe-planked project was first proposed in 2008 and is not to be confused with acrid battle over 700 Valencia but was still something of a struggle to get built. The architect is Panasci Associates who apparently took over the design midway through a troubled phase.
Behind that facade is the usual blandly expensive luxury flat that's seems to have been focus-grouped into existence. No word on street-level retail on one of San Francisco's most interesting shopping and eating strips and around the corner form the 18th Street gourmet gulch. It appears that three units (out of eight total) are contingent or pending, although no final word on the amounts they've fetched. The other nagging question of course: how much weight does one gain by living within striking distance of Tartine and the BiRite Creamery?
