Reader, take note: Two very rare things have occurred with the new listing of 355 1st St., #1004. First, we have the chance to buy into the Metropolitan, a popular complex on popular Rincon Hill. Next, we have a 2 bed, 2 bath luxury condo asking $999,500-- so yes, that's correct: less than a million bucks. Will this price (still steep as it is) incite bidders to offer 2 times, 3 times the price plus rights to their first born children and secret recipe for amazing brownies? You tell us, readers. But know the facts: the unit, though perhaps a little boxy to some tastes, includes balcony with view, use of gym, pool, theater, club room with fireplace and BBQ area/courtyard, plus parking and 24 hour doorman service (paid for by your $747 per month HOA). Additional info of interest: It sold in 2009 for $705K.
