Tucked away on a quiet corner in the midst of the busy South Beach San Francisco neighborhood, Cape Horn Lofts at 540 Delancey Street is a renovated brick and timber warehouse, circa 1907. With a conversion that included seismic retrofitting designed by Pfau Architects, who also designed a similar renovation of the Mill Building at 720 York Street, Cape Horn Lofts originally included 16 units. A later remodel by a tenant merged two lofts into one large, luxurious, 2900 square foot penthouse home.
The remaining 14 units at 540 Delancey Street range in size from a compact 650+ square feet to 1468 square feet. The lofts retain the brick and timber, warehouse style of the original building tempered by modern amenities that include hardwood floors and a landscaped interior courtyard, along with an elevator and a parking garage.
Cape Horn Lofts have a convenient South Beach location close to shops and dining. The Ferry Building with its shops, restaurants, farmer's market, and - of course - ferry transportation that links San Francisco with Marin County and the East Bay is a mile away. Public transportation is nearby and Interstate-80 and the Bay Bridge are literally within a just a couple minutes drive.
