Clocktower Loft

461 Second Street #659


The Clock Tower, once home to San Francisco' Schmidt Lithography Company, has been converted into 127 live/work spaces in the heart of the South of Market Historical District. The original brick-and-timber plant was built by Max Schmidt in 1907 and expanded to include a six-story concrete building. On the site where artists and printers once produced classic California Fruit Box labels and posters for the Panama Pacific International Exposition, a new generation of entrepreneurs and loft lovers can now live and work. A San Francisco Landmark, the Clock Tower features a lush landscaped central courtyard and four floors of deeded parking. The average loft size is over 1200 square feet, with lofts ranging between 600 and 4000 square feet. All units feature completed kitchens and bathrooms. Two elevators and a dramatic stairway lead to the light-filled lofts. The building's interior and many of the individual units feature brick walls and timber columns, reminiscent of lofts in Paris and New York. Others offer powerful concrete columns and sweeping expanses. The ceilings are 12 to 20 feet in height, and in many units, timber beams crisscross high above. Sunlight pours into lofts through large industrial windows, skylights and light courts, Many lofts feature exciting bay, city and bridge views.

This is a two bedroom (second room is best suited for home office or guest room), two full bath, and two car tandem parking loft with newly refinished maple floors and new paint.  At approximately 1,815 square feet according to the tax records this an excellent value and superior location.
