The Book Concern Lofts is an efficiency loft conversion located on the edge of the Civic Center district in downtown San Francisco. Built in 1906, the building at 83 McAllister Street retains turn-of-the-century character with the original brick and limestone façade, while the inside has been converted into 60 loft-style condominiums.
With the renovation completed in 2006, The Book Concern Lofts presents an affordable housing option in an expensive city. The loft-style units at 83 McAllister range from a very compact 270 square feet to a slightly larger 425 square feet, with studio, one and two bedroom floor plans. While the size might not appeal to everyone, the lofts could be a perfect choice for suburban dwellers needing a pied-a-terre for their forays into the city, first time homebuyers, students (UC Hastings College of the Law is on the next block), or those looking to invest in a reasonably priced rental property. Amenities at The Book Concern Lofts include a rooftop garden terrace, a fitness center, laundry center, elevator, and high-speed wiring.
At first glance, The Book Concern Lofts' 83 McAllister address might be a bit off-putting; it is on the cusp of the Civic Center and the Tenderloin. However, considering all the benefits the address has to offer might cause a change in perspective. Shopping, entertainment, dining, and public transportation are in the immediate neighborhood, the lofts are affordable, and the surrounding area is undergoing revitalization with the addition of the new Federal Building and development of several nearby projects including Mint Plaza and several new complexes around Central Market.
