Downtown Condo Up for Grabs in Art Deco-Gothic Crown Towers, $749,000

New, 3 comments

Envy-inducing crimson high-rise has a red-hot place available

If you've ever strolled past Crown Towers, you've taken notice of its crimson (Downing Street red, to be exact) facade with black trim. Hard to miss it this art deco/Gothic-inspired gem as you can see it from the Bay Bridge. And if you've looked closer, you've seen that it has a pretty cool address to boot. And now a one bedroom, one bath unit at 666 Post is ripe for the taking. For a cool $749,000, that is.

Designed by architect John C. Hladik in 1925, it was originally geared toward gentleman who lived outside the city, but needed a pied-a-terre near the former men-only clubs (e.g., the Bohemian Club, the Olympic Club, and the Pacific Union Club).

Today the building houses apartments and condos for anyone, gender be damned. And this 831-square-foot unit, located a notch above street level, features hardwood floors, heavenly arch doors, of-the-era tile in both kitchen and bathroom, built-ins, and more.

For some, Victorians are the ultimate San Francisco residential goal. For others, this downtown confection is what they dreamed about when they came to San Francisco.
