4-Unit Long Distance Telephone Building Lists for $2.995M

New, 1 comment

The Long Distance Telephone Building on Page Street in Hayes Valley, built in 1895, played a critical role in San Francisco's communications history. It was one of only two telephone exchange facilities to withstand the earthquake in 1906 and thus was vital for communicating with the rest of the world following the disaster. In subsequent years, the building was used as a Masonic hall and then as digital media and recording studios. Its most recent incarnation is as a 7,000 square foot, 4-unit primarily residential building filled with exposed beams and bricks and open layouts. A tile mural at the entryway pays homage to its former telephone exchange use. The building is now up for sale for $2.995 million. All of the units are currently rented, with one listed as an office and the remaining three residential. · 871 Page Street [Redfin]
