? This loft is located in a safer area of SoMa, and the building has more curb appeal that its competition. That said, it has less bathrooms and is smaller. While we love the wood-burning fireplace and the natural light, that galley kitchen seems awfully tight.
? Sure, the area's more dangerous than its competition, but it's also within walking distance of Mid-Market where all the hot shot tech companies like Twitter and Square are located. It's also a tri-level loft, though one of the levels seems like it has unusually low ceilings. It has not one but two fireplaces.
