A Look Inside the Mission’s 555 Bartlett

I attended a friends and neighbors party at the Mission’s new 555 Bartlett last night. The building isn’t quite complete, but it’s pretty obvious that it will cater to what San Francisco buyers need—reasonably priced units with parking in a central, increasingly hip location.

The 58-unit development is located at the corner of Mission and Cesar Chavez and features a mix of predominantly one- and two-bedroom condos.

The developer is pricing Bartlett in a very appealing price range for new construction—and for a majority of San Francisco buyers. The one bedrooms will start in the $400,000s, and the two bedrooms will be listed in the mid-$500,000s. There are a handful of three-bedroom units in the $600,000s, and a few studios. Many of the one bedrooms, some with studies, face the 26th Street side of the project, which will be quieter. The two bedrooms face Cesar Chavez.

Here’s a look at the living room of the staged one-bedroom model, along with the kitchen—and a desk area that lies between the bedroom and bathroom:

The two-bedroom model is staged a bit more whimsically, and also includes a painted “brick wall” :

Finishes are quite nice for the price point, and include quartz countertops, Bosch gas range, microwave and dishwasher, and Kohler faucets. Most units have small balconies or decks, and are pre-wired for ceiling fans and alarm systems.

There’s also an approximately 11,000-square foot interior courtyard, bike storage, an elevator, and a Walgreens on the ground level. Parking comes with each unit, but those opting for no parking can chop $40,000 off the purchase price. HOA dues will range from $270-$350/mo.

The location is extremely convenient for downtown and Peninsula commuters. BART is three blocks north on Mission, and 280 or 101 are about two minutes away. You can also walk one block to Valencia and find yourself a stone’s throw from Pi Bar, Anthony’s Cookies, and Beretta. Or head south on Mission and hit El Rio, Blue Plate, Good Frikin’ Chicken, Emmy’s Spaghetti Shack, the Front Porch, and Safeway.

Though not yet ready to be shown to the public, 555 Bartlett will open soon. And don’t get too put off by the existing exterior colors; I’m told they are primer for the final color scheme.

555 Bartlett is also approved for FHA loans.

Let me know if you’d like to schedule an appointment before the masses get through the doors.

    Thanks for the peek. Is there any mention of square footage on these condos?
    best wishes,

  2. […] make you want to stay in this weekend (did you see the neighborhood’s newest digs by the way? Insidesfre.com got the inside scoop). If that leads to wondering what movies your neighbors are getting on […]

  3. insidesfre says:

    They haven’t provided square footage. I’d estimate around 700 for the 1brs, and maybe somewhere in between 700-800 for 2brs. Not huge, but good use of space.

  4. Dan Partridge says:

    The smallest 1 brs (shown in the pics) are 676 sq feet, and the largest (right on the corner of CC and Mission) are 812. Others range between. Two brs are a little over 900 sq feet, basically. Prices tbd, for the time being.

      Thanks, Dan. They didn’t have square footage readily available during my preview, and pricing is still to follow.

    What’s that blue beacon looking thing in the top left corner of the second photo (1br kitchen pic)? Is that some type of alarm?

    Also in the same pic, look at the jug labeled “pork drippings.” While I’m sure I’m not alone in loving pork fat, I’m not so sure it was the best choice. Then again, rendered pork fat is commonly used in many cultures. Perhaps that’s the target market.

    And finally, there doesn’t appear to be room for a dining table in the 1br. Maybe a small two-seater cafe table, but that’s about it.

  6. insidesfre says:

    Tauly–I asked about the blue beacon, and there actually is an answer. The developer was apparently required to install these lights in a certain number of units. They flash when the phone or bell rings, etc and are for the disabled or hard of hearing communities. As for the pork drippings situation, I’m not surprised because you have Incanto about five minutes away (restaurant that makes use of every part of a pig for its dinners) and all the tacquerias who probably use a lot of pork drippings. I think the attempt was to showcase local cuisine. 🙂

    Yes, a cafe table or four-seater would be the max you’d have in the dining area.

    Bartlett ended up taking 13 reservations this past weekend, two of which were for my clients. It is pretty popular for its price point and for what you get, pork drippings included.

  7. […] Posted by insidesfre on March 16, 2010 It’s been a week or so since the sales office at 555 Bartlett began taking reservations and writing contracts. To date, 25 of the 58 residential condos are in contract, according to the sales team. That’s an excellent sales rate for a new development in the current market. Given the overall quality and reputable developer involved, I’m not surprised. I was very favorably impressed upon my initial preview visit. […]
