Memo to RR: Steph Curry is moving to S.F.

I hope the dinosaurs at Rebane’s Ruminations don’t freak out, but a well-known sports celebrity is moving to (not from) downtown San Francisco. LOL!

“Stephen Curry, the Golden State Warriors All-Star guard, is buying a swanky pad in downtown San Francisco’s plushest new condo tower,” as The Chronicle is reporting.

“A few months after the Warriors left Oakland for San Francisco’s Mission Bay, the Curry family — Stephen is married to celebrity restaurateur Ayesha Curry and they have three children — is heading west, too. Curry, who signed a $201 million, five-year contract in 2017, snapped up a condo in the Four Seasons Private Residences at 706 Mission St., a new tower opening in June across from Yerba Buena Center for the Arts.

“The price for the 2,800-square-foot condo the Currys bought was just under $8 million, according to real estate sources familiar with the unit and building. The unit is on the 30th floor — coincidentally, Curry wears No. 30 for the Warriors.

“The purchase is the latest example of the Curry family’s gradual migration from the East Bay to the west side of the bay. 

“There is no shortage of interested buyers out there,’ said Rich Baumert, a partner with Westbrook Partners overseeing the development. ‘Downtown (San Francisco) is still a place people want to be. The Four Seasons has global reach. Global demand for this kind of product has not waned in any way.’”

  1. I heard “fish” wanted to check out the units in this spiffy new tower, but when he rolled up to the Bay Bridge toll booth in his jalope, he didn’t understand that he had to pay just to drive on the bridge. LOL.
