A home should be a haven, a place that exists outside of the hustle and bustle of urban life, even when its front door opens onto one of the most exciting neighborhoods around. Meet 1228 Howard, the new collection of SoMa condos for sale that combines an unbeatable San Francisco location with tranquil interiors to truly create a life in balance.
Nestled in SoMa, one of San Francisco’s hippest neighborhoods, 1228 Howard features light-filled homes in a range of layouts, from lofts to townhomes. Oversized windows and plank flooring create bright open-floor interiors, which are appointed with top-of-the-line appliances and fixtures that make both cooking and bathing a dream. Features like washer and dryer hookups and in-home air conditioning also make these condos as convenient as they are stylish, providing valuable quality-of-life enhancements in the heart of the city.
Stepping outside their home, 1228 Howard residents will find themselves on The Lane, a tree-lined cobblestone alley between the development’s two buildings that provides a glimpse of nature in the middle of town. Just beyond The Lane, residents step into SoMa, one of San Francisco’s most walkable and bikeable neighborhoods. Hip spots like waterfront ATwater Tavern and Italian favorite A Mano are close enough for a spur-of-the-moment drink or bite to eat. In a city known for its Asian cuisine, 1228 Howard residents can head to a pair of San Francisco’s best nearby spots: Wagyu destination Gozu and Burma Love, a new location from the iconic Burma Superstar family.
SoMa is also one of the nation’s top entertainment destinations. The sprawling Yerba Buena Center for the Arts combines a museum, performance space, and civic venue into a one-stop shop for the creative world of San Francisco, while BroadwaySF brings the biggest theater hits from around the globe to the City by the Bay. For something a little more off the beaten path, check out the Marrakech Magic Theater, opened in 2017 by close-up magician Jay Alexander and housed in the former location of the nation’s first Moroccan restaurant. And, of course, who could forget nearby Oracle Park, home to the San Francisco Giants, where San Franciscans have been enjoying sweeping bay views and epic home runs since 2000?
The up-and-coming area near 1228 Howard is also ready and able to meet its residents’ day-to-day needs, thanks in part to the addition of two new retail giants: Whole Foods and Ikea. At Eighth and Market Streets, San Francisco’s largest Whole Foods will be anchoring the neighborhood, providing delicious and convenient meals (or the ingredients to make them) for quiet evenings or fabulous parties. Meanwhile, the new Ikea at 945 Market Street will do what Ikea does best: help people create their best homes.
With all this just outside their front door, 1228 Howard residents live in the best of both worlds, waking up in a tranquil place that feels a million miles away from it all while still being able to grab a latte in a couple of minutes. But don’t take our word for it! Schedule a tour now and see these spectacular SoMa homes for yourself.
