It’s a red-letter day when a home inside the glorious Hamilton building in the Tenderloin hits the market. Well, consider today a crimson-letter day as two—two!—units inside the circa-1929 tower are up for grabs.

These two units, #611 and #806, come with the same layout (as do most of the units inside the building) and feature large windows, a sleeping alcove that holds a queen size bed, an ample walk-in closet/dressing room that leads to a bathroom (bearing their original tile work), and an additional coat closet in entry way.

Both units measure in at 520 square feet and include access to the 16th-floor sky deck, a fitness center, a laundry room, and 24-hour manned desk.

A bit of background on the tower and its downright stunning lobby: The Hamilton, which started life as a hotel, is named after—just you wait—Alexander Hamilton. By the 1960s, the area surrounding the Hamilton, considered off the beaten track for tourists, was sold and became one of San Francisco’s first condominium conversion. The lobby was transformed into a grand spectacle replete with throne chairs and ornate details. In 2008, the Hamilton received a Preservation Award from the Art Deco Society of California “given due to the lobby renovations, new fireplace, and new custom chandeliers as well as other common spaces.”

The listings are through Tom Cacciotti of Vanguard Properties.
