Other: This the least expensive full service building in downtown with the same amenities found in much more expensive high rises.

This building had two developers, the first one worked up to the 8th floor, the second from the 9th floor up. The first developer who was building it as apartments to rent ordered white appliances and the second developer who bought the building to finish it as condos installed stainless steel appliances. So in general units on the 8th floor and below have white appliances and 9th and above stainless steel.

Units facing these directions will probably see:
West: As of 2013 some great bay views, there is a mid rise office building towards the northern end of the block across the street so you have to be high up there. Beware of a proposed high rise building on the southern half of the block across the street looking west, it will eliminate the water views for most units if its ever built (last proposed name was Lumina).
North: Very open and panoramic views. Views NE are blocked by the high rise La Vita condominiums.
East: Looking into the 350 West Ash loft building and the Apreture condos. Units on the uppermost floors of the northern potion on the east side will be able to see over the Aperture lofts building.
South: Some great views of the business district several blocks away. Beware there is a parking lot directly across the street looking to the South and it will probably be built up one day.
Note: These views may change in the future or if your on a very low floor may not have any view. Each buyer should verify on their own.

Like the most: A common thread in almost all the survey respondents was the appreciation of its location in Little Italy so close to the boutiques and restaurants. Positive comments were also made on the views, close proximity to the bay, 8th floor roof top pool. One resident said the neighbors are cool.
Like the least: Several residents informed me they do not like the relatively high monthly home owners association (HOA) fees. One respondent commented that they did not like the color of the buildings exterior or interior.
Other comments: This building has mandatory valet parking. While most survey respondents gave the parking a high star rating and some gave positive comments on it, some residents expressed they did not like valet parking concept even though the parking staff is great.
