On the site of what was a bedraggled warehouse at the corner of Pennsylvania and 17th streets, a brand-new condo building now stands. The 26 units at 1001 17th Street have just started selling, and they boast prices that are, for new construction in San Francisco, practically affordable. Two units came on the MLS this morning: a one-bedroom, one-bath asking just $680,000 and a two-bed, two-bath looking for $1.05 million. There's no square footage advertised for either home, and based on the floor plans they're not what you would call spacious, but those prices are still on the low side for something brand new in San Francisco.
The development isn't nearly as laden with luxury amenities as most new condo buildings in SF. There is no fitness center or concierge, and there doesn't appear to be the requisite rooftop deck here. There are wide plank oak floors and easy access to numerous neighborhoods, from Potrero Hill to Mission Bay to Dogpatch. The 280 freeway is also about as close as you can get—you can see it right through the living room windows, in fact. Access may be a bit tougher, given that traffic around this building backs up for blocks on most days. The two-bedroom unit comes with one garage parking spot, while the one-bedroom has no parking.
