The downright glorious yet blunt 8 Octavia, designed by starchitect Stanley Saitowitz, opened in 2014 to both acclaim and aghast. A polarizing gem of a structure, some hailed it as refreshing addition of positive contrast to the area, while some purists knee-jerkingly derided it as a prison-like structure.
For the former group, who are clearly in the know, check out 8 Octavia’s most recent offering that landed on the market this week.
Coming in at one bed, one bath, and a diminutive 726 square feet, this sixth-floor condo features in-unit laundry, ultra-contemporary fixtures, and clean lines galore. The concrete ceiling is an utter delight. The exterior’s shutter system is unique. But, heads up, the bedroom window faces a light well.
This is a superb chance to own a minimalist Saitowitz in the heart of the city’s most popular neighborhoods, rightat the nexus of Haves Valley, MidMarket, and Castro. Clutter bugs and hoaders, this might not be the spot for you.
HOAs come to $634/month. Asking is $880,000.
