72 Townsend Street
Loft72 presents a once-in-a-generation opportunity for it’s next owner to create one of San Francisco’s most significant loft environments in an idyllic South Beach setting at the crossroads of Townsend street and The Embarcadero. With “ready to go” infrastructure and finely detailed, residential architectural plans that can be executed or tuned to one’s preferences, this majestic expanse is an incredible rarity in today’s monochromatic box-and-build, monolithic culture.
Spread across nearly 3,000 square feet of expansive and voluminous footage on two levels and featuring it’s own private, street front entrance, Loft72 offers up the opportunity for private single family home style living coupled with the “lock and leave” ease of condominium life.
Originally constructed in 1875 as the South End Grain Warehouse, the 28,000 square foot structure survived the 1906 San Francisco Earthquake making it the oldest 1 story warehouse in the SouthEnd district and preserving through today this Industrial landmark.
As part of the 72 Townsend Association, the new owner is afforded securely managed common area access for unannounced guests, deliveries or simply as a more separate greeting space for one-off-visits. The affiliation also offers use of the panoramic view sky deck with expansive water and city views, business lounge and internal garage which affords the next owner a dedicated parking space directly adjacent to the rear door of this amazing residence.
The soaring, vaulted timber ceilings are the hallmark of this spectacular space and is punctuated by an enormous skylight, drenching the wooden beams, trusses and supports below. Seismically updated with vast steel beams and columns and highlighted by original brick walls to the rear, the expanse showcases the best of old world strength, character and charm with new world engineering.
Envisioned by Jones Haydu Architecture (joneshaydu.com), Loft72, is conceived to be at once a sophisticated and dramatic space for living and simultaneously an inspiring place for concepting and envisioning the future. With dedicated yet open areas for living, dining, entertaining, working and of course sleeping and dreaming, this is a once-in-a-generation opportunity.
