From the outside, the concrete structure at 650 2nd Street reflects its industrial origins. Constructed in 1923, the building was used as a tire warehouse until Prohibition ended and it was converted to a distribution warehouse and corporate offices for the Seagram Company. In the late 1950s, the George Lithograph Company purchased the building, and 650 2nd Street underwent its third incarnation as a printing plant. In the late 1990s, 650 Second Street was transformed once again, this time into a stylish loft development in San Francisco's South Beach neighborhood.
Today the 24 lofts at 650 2nd Street are stylish modern homes with the chic urban vibe that is characteristic of many successful loft conversions. Large factory-style windows, high ceilings, exposed ductwork, and concrete pillars give the homes an industrial edge, while high-end kitchens with designer touches and open floor plans add a modern, contemporary feel. Residents of 650 Second Street enjoy amenities that include a beautifully restored Art Deco lobby, deeded parking, and a common roof top terrace that comes complete with a barbeque grill and stellar views of the surrounding city.
South Beach's proximity to some of San Francisco's biggest job centers, including Mission Bay, SoMa, and the Financial District, along with convenient shopping and dining options puts 650 2nd Street in a great location for work and leisure activities.
