UPDATE January 13th, 2:00pm: Both Merchant and Olympia at SF Shipyard are sold out as of this past weekend. Building reps tell us the development will be offering more condos/flats and townhomes in about a month. Floorplans, marketing materials and pricing are being finalized for the next buildings.
The first homes are nearing completion at Lennar’s colossal Shipyard project in Hunters Point.
The 88 units under construction are divided into two collections: the 25-townhouse Olympia and 63-condo Merchant. The first phase of the Shipyard will have 1,400 units, 16 pocket parks and 25 acres of landscaped parks and trails, with the different housing “clusters” set up like individual neighborhoods. The Shipyard, in conjunction with Lennar’s Candlestick Point, will ultimately bring 12,000 homes and millions of square feet in office and retail space, spread over about 750 acres.
Perched on a hill off of Innes Court, Olympia and Merchant launched sales in June 2014. Pricing for Merchant started at $452,500 for a one-bedroom, $552,800 for a two-bedroom and $676,000 fora three-bedroom. Two-bedroom townhomes at Olympia were priced from $658,700.
Olympia serves up two- and three-bedroom townhouses with private entrances, attached garages and private patios and balconies, many with views of the San Francisco Bay and the Bay Bridge. Interiors feature open floorplans, walk-in closets, sustainable bamboo flooring throughout kitchen and living areas, stainless steel Bosch appliances and bathrooms with quartz slab countertops and porcelain floors.
Many Merchant apartments have energy-efficient windows overlooking the Bay Bridge, Oakland Hills and downtown San Francisco. The interiors have open kitchen layouts, European-style cabinetry, stainless steel Bosch appliances, natural quartz slab countertops, wide-plank wood flooring through kitchen and living areas and porcelain tile floors in bathrooms. Residents also get a community roof deck with outdoor barbecue grills and seating, private courtyard with green walls and controlled-access underground bike and car parking.
The whole megaproject won’t be completed for at least another 15 years and will require more than $8 billion to build out, the San Francisco Business Times reported.
