Modern Elegance Meets Urban Vitality
A new 20-unit condo complex called Onyx Homes, with one-bedrooms starting at $779,000, has just gone up this year at the corner of De Haro and 16th Street at the base of Potrero Hill.
There was an Open House on Sunday, with door signage proclaiming that the complex was where "Modern Elegance Meets Urban Vitality."
I'm not sure if a street person emptying a trash can on the sidewalk in front of your modern, elegant condo is considered "urban vitality," but it sums up the present moment in San Francisco neatly, where bums and millionaires seem to be the only people surviving the latest tech gold rush.
