Developed by Joseph Eichler (the man was ahead of his time in many ways, he deserves credit and praise for resigning from the National Association of Home Builders when they refused to support a non-discrimination policy in 1958)Â and completed in 1964 (per San Francisco county tax records), The Summit at 999 Green St. perches atop Russian Hill and offers some of the most spectacular San Francisco Bay, downtown skyline, and Golden Gate Bridge views that money can buy in San Francisco. And while we can talk about amenities and location, the appeal of this building has always been and probably always will be the spectacular views.

The building has 104 residential condominiums on 26 floors above six levels of parking, and homes range in size from roughly 900 square feet to just shy of 2,000 square feet. The home layouts feature an open space living plan and small walkout decks. The building consists primarily of one and two bedroom condominiums, although the rare three bedroom condominium sometime pops up on the market for sale.
The most expensive condo to sell in the building (as reported in the San Francisco multiple listing service) was residence 2905 on the north-east corner of the building, which sold for just under the asking price of $4,650,000 in December of 2006. (The 05 floorplan was originally built as a one bedroom floorplan, this home was created from the combination of two condos). The least expensive home to sell in the building (as reported in the MLS) was residence 1003, a one bedroom condo that was tenant occupied at the time of sale and was listed and sold in 2004 for $715,000.
If you are looking for a (relatively speaking) modern building in Russian Hill that includes parking and has incredible views, then you would do well to consider looking at condo homes in The Summit.
