The Tenderloin’s Most Expensive Penthouse Is Still at It

New, 4 comments

Unique art deco top-floor pad inside this former hotel seeks perfect match

The Hamilton at 631 O’Farrell is one of those gems that you can see from almost anywhere in the Tenderloin. This 1930 art deco building in the thick of it all also has a solarium that’s viewable from street level, too, promoting many a passerby to ask, "What’s in there, exactly?"

Well, it’s all a part of this penthouse. The bonkers unit, on the market for years now, has been struggling for quite some time, looking for the perfect fit. And it isn't for everyone—smack dab in the Tenderloin and replete with some unique decor, it needs someone who gets it.

It has been listed and delisted several times over the years, notably appearing on the market in 2013 for $5.25 million. Asking has since been whittled down from $4.25 million to $3.95 million, which is where it rests today.

The Hamilton, formerly known as the Alexander Hamilton Hotel, was converted to condos in 1962. The swanky top-floor pad comes with two bedroom, three and a half baths, 3,591 square feet. HOAs are $4,637/month.
