On Wednesday, Hoodline founder Andrew Dudley wrote an article about a $6500/month one-bedroom apartment in Duboce Park — the most popular piece he's ever written, he says. And by Thursday, the building that contains that apartment was tagged, by a spray-paint wielding person saying the same thing many of us thought as we read Dudley's piece.
As Hoodline reports from 435 Duboce:
Yes, after more than four years of construction, the building at Duboce and Fillmore is finally ready for tenants, and its premium unit is apparently making up for lost time, rent-wise. Granted, it's a "penthouse" (the building is only three stories high, for what it's worth), offering a "panorama city view" and "private interior-facing decks." It also sports finishes like a Viking range and Carrara marble countertops, housecleaning services included, and "quality sound insulation," which should help protect you from the frequent rumbling of the N-Judah and the colorful street life outside your front door.
The entire unit is just 981 square feet, which translates to almost $7 per square foot, and the deposit is listed at $13,000. There are no photos available.
As a thing, I prefer “Don’t Waste Your $” over “Die Yuppie Scum” or whatever. No threats of violence. Just some good, practical advice.— Andrew Dalton (@dolftown) August 14, 2015
