"Ultra Chic Urban Dwellings" in the Mission - Kevlar required?



This thread on SocketSite discusses the new development at 20th and Shotwell with its 6 spacious contemporary units, including 2 enormous 2700 sq ft penthouses priced very reasonably (in this market anyway) for the space.

Nice units overall but the penthouses stand out as unique. The point of contention here is the exact location within the mission - arguably one of the roughest spots that is smack-dab on the of boundary line between rival gangs (a bloody street, literally) and a 1/2 block from the fire station.

Bottom line - either you can live in the mission and handle it, or you can't - and you should live in Pacific Heights or the Marina where apparently no crimes ever happen.

How do you know this place is smack-dab on the boundary between two rival gangs?

You might throw up some street views of this.

Also, agree with jason - reference the crime maps that SF does - those are great!
