Climb Real Estate sold properties at several buildings in the Bay Area in the last week, including lofts and condos in SOMA, South Beach, Potrero Hill and Mission Bay and a house in the East Bay. Here’s the full list of sold properties plus nearby properties that are currently for sale. 

SOMA (South of Market)


388 Townsend St. #4 is a 1 bedroom, 2 bathroom live/work loft in a boutique SOMA building, sold for $740,000 by Todd Montgomery and Marcus Lee. Climb’s Melody Hultgren represented the buyer. With a classic bi-level layout, a fireplace, a balcony off the living room, deeded parking, and an ideal location across the street from Caltrain, the 940 sq. ft. loft  has it all.


249 Shipley St. #2 is a 1 bedroom, 1.5 bathroom live/work loft in SOMA with access to all the neighborhood’s amenities. Sold for 695,000 by Michelle Balog and Sherry Juneja, with the buyer represented by Rebecca Brooks, this bi-level loft features lovely polished concrete floors and a gas fireplace. Built in 1999, the 12-unit loft building is really in the heart of the city, within walking distance to downtown, South Beach, Caltrain, BART, freeways, restaurants, nightfife, museums, and a lot more.

249 Shipley is also located a block from two of SOMA’s newest developments at 900 Folsom Street and 280 5th Street. Mosso at 900 Folsom is a rental building currently under construction with planned availability this spring, and 280 5th Street is a 181-unit development still in the planning stages (no listing brokerage yet). Shipley is also a couple blocks from a planned new 112-unit development at 99 Rausch (1140 Folsom Street).


Ana Rubke and Edie Narrido sold a 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom condo at The Palms for $620,000. The condo, 555 4th St. #602, features a courtyard view, a mini-balcony, hardwood floors, and access to the Palms’ luxury amenities. Leased parking is available, although the building’s location on the borders of SOMA, South Beach, and Mission Bay and proximity to BART, Muni and Caltrain means you might not even need a car. The Palms is directly along the path of the new Central Subway, so will soon have even easier access to other parts of the city. A new development at 246 Ritch Street was recently completed behind the Palms; the 16-unit building is all rental studios.
