Looks interesting, but with so many beautiful hoods in San Fco, why somebody may choose to live on this commieblock?

- Reasonable rent
- It's quite close to important work places like Twitter and Dolby Labs and it's on the busiest transit routes so you absolutely wouldn't need a car living there.

Mainly, though, San Francisco is booming again and apartments are expensive and hard to find. This place has plenty of them, the rents are low for what you get (they are clean and modern) and about 450 tenants of the old building this replaced were given apartments in Phase 1 at the rents they were paying which were rent-controlled to, in some cases, levels that prevailed a decade or more ago.
