The Landmark building on Grant, just before the Chinatown entrance, was the 1908 headquarters of the Home Telephone Company, site of the city’s first telephone exchange site. After a brilliant 2004 renovation, it’s now home to several lofty residences, including this penthouse condo.
This one-bedroom, one-and-a-half-bath pad at 333 Grant features a teensy 834 square feet. It comes with downtown-chic exposed brick, a decent sized skylight, a step out balcony, and a partitioned den/office/possible guest room.
The big selling point here, aside from its historic relevance, is location. While The Landmark is not in the trendiest of neighborhoods (a la the saturated Mission or Hayes Valley arrondissements), it is near Lower Nob Hill and shops galore in Union Square.
And if you don’t mind tourists lollygagging outside your door on a daily basis, then this place could be quite the deal.
(Also, for what it’s worth, the Landmark is in the same building as a Lululemon store, the retailers responsible for aiding and abetting the spread of the worrisome athleisure trend.)
HOAs come to $780/month. Asking is $975,000.
