I realize this is an older post but as an fyi, sales prices are recorded and are public record. Any realtor can help you determine what a particular unit has sold for. If you're thinking of buying a unit in a particular building, it's most likely better for you to be represented by an agent not affiliated with the developer/building. This way, you can truly negotiate and get the best deal possible.

They are all correct. Your realtor can help you. If he/she has connections at The Infinity he/she can ask the agents there current sale prices of various units. And you can go to the SF Assessor's Office at City Hall and check those out as well. New construction is rarely put into the MLS unless it is the last of the units for sale. Then those prices show up on our MLS.
Please keep in mind that many of the sale prices do NOT include any concessions from the Developer that were not taken directly off the List Price. All new construction complexes are offering really good deals. Some are flat out offering a percentage off and others are dickering with offer prices. Most are throwing in some level of upgrades and HOA dues paid for a period of time.
Take a realtor with you so the negotiator's fudiciary responsibility is to you and not the Developer. We all would be happy to go with you!
Great question! It is VERY tough, near impossible for you to find out comparable sale prices of condos at the Infinity or any new construction. They keep this stuff very hush-hush.
I've been able to help my clients get exceptional values at the Infinity and other new construction developments in San Francisco by working my network.
While I won't go into specifics on the Internet (you know, the whole cow and milk saying), I can say that we are able to help our buyers obtain good values on the homes they want.
Currently, clients of mine are about to close escrow at the Infinity and they got a great deal. Sales have picked up a lot (a good thing) but values are still to be had.
Let me know if you want some help.
