1303 Alabama St’s Wind Turbine

by sfishome on April 9, 2010

I had never seen or heard about 1303 Alabama until yesterday as I was scouting out projects in the Mission and this wind turbine caught my eye. 

I see back in 2007 both SF.Curbed and Socketsite had some overly passionate exchanges between the owner/builder and some unusually angry commenters.  The building in question only appears to show up in tax records as 3027-3029 25th Street.

This was the “Sunset Idea House” in 2007 and interior photos can be found here.

The bottom line – after 9 months on the San Francisco MLS starting at $1,089,000, the 2 BR 1,200 SqFt 1303 Alabama St TIC unit was eventually withdrawn with no apparent sale last asking $995,000.  Meanwhile, per tax records 3027-3029 25th Street was sold by Robin Wilson (the builder) in 2009 for $1,245,000.  One really has to wonder – did both units really only sell for that price?  Or was that just one of the two units selling with the original owner retaining ownership of the other unit?  I can’t find a way to track that info down.
