Yes, that’s right…I am going on a tour of the new Bayside at the Embarcadero tonight. Bosa Development has arranged for a special preview for realtors, so we can walk the building, check out the different floorplans and hopefully get pricing on the condos. I’ve already been through a handful of the Bayside condos, but I’m really anxious to see some of the larger penthouses, as well as the west facing B floorplan – Bayside’s version of The Grande’s E plan.
I think the Bayside condos in downtown San Diego will offer a highend highrise with very protected views, which home buyers are clearly demanding. We’ll have to wait and see where the condos will be priced at, but I’m guessing they’re going to be high and I’m not too sure how many people will be too eager to lock in a unit(at least not on the average sized units). Like Sapphire Tower, I think Bayside will do well with the larger floorplans and penthouses, but may struggle a bit with the condos that are less than 1,500 sqft. In my opinion, people are going to compare Bayside to all the other resale condos and think long and hard about whether or not it’s worth the premium.
For those who want newer and higher end, clearly Bayside will be the answer. For those who want a better deal, I think we’ll see people moving to The Grande and other slightly older buildings. Time will tell.
If you have any questions about Bayside, or want me to look for specific items, features, etc., please let me know. I’ll be heading over around 5pm. Please call, text or email me your questions and requests. Thanks.
