Here’s what happened in the Residential and Commercial San Francisco Bay Area Real Estate Market since 5/9:


Our friend Xavier Niel is duplicating his highly successful Coding School based in Paris in Sillicon Valley. 42 will open inn Fremont where 42 purchased 100,000 sf at 6600 Dumbarton Circle and 84,000 sf at 34,793 Ardentech for $26.2M. Fremont is becoming a hot market.


Reddit under Ohanian leased 50,000 sf at 420 Taylor. Reddit is thought of paying $62 per sf per year.


424 Mason will be a hotel. More to come.


181 Fremont is an 802 foot mixed use building we have discussed many times here and full disclosure we are actively marketing the 55 condos that are part of the project. 2 BR 2 BA are about 1200 sf and starting in the low $3M. 3/3 will be in the mid $6M or from $2400 to $4500 per square foot. The 7,000 square foot Penthouse which we have marketed is not priced but we indicated to clients it should go for around $35M. There are also 12 1/1 but they owners of the 2/2 and 3/3 have first right of refusal to purchase them. Whatever is left may be opened to the public. If you add those there will be a total of 67 units. The condo part is starting at 520 feet which is almost at the same height as the Millennium. It sits on 435,000 sf of class A office space that our friend Carl Baldauf is marketing. Note that it took a year to dig over 60 feet below surface to anchor the structure to bedrock.
