The 10 Most Expensive Properties for Sale in Chinatown

New, 2 comments

Our sister site Eater SF has declared this week to be Chinese Food Week, so in their honor, we're taking a look at the most expensive residential real estate in or around Chinatown. As we're sure you're sure, Chinatown's real estate market is notorious for being hush hush. Meaning, most of its property isn't sold on the open market. We'll be focusing on properties between Broadway and Bush streets and Powell and Kearny streets. Without further ado, Chinatown's 10 priciest on-the-market abodes.

10) 946 Stockton Street, Unit 16B?

?The Skinny: This unit's been on the market since 2007 and the photo's of the empty condo have a time stamp of 2003, so there's that. That said, the sale is pending, so we'll see if this very lonely unit will soon have a new owner. It's a 2-bed, 1.5-bath condo on the 16th floor. Monthly HOA dues are $450 and there's no mention of parking.
