Located in the heart of San Francisco's trendy South of Market (SOMA) neighborhood, the Lighthouse Lofts building at 1097 Howard Street once housed an industrial warehouse and the administrative offices for the San Francisco Lighthouse for the Blind. Reclaimed and redesigned by Verdigris Architects (aka Verdigris, Patina, and Rust), 1097 Howard Street is now a sophisticated, 3-story, luxury loft development.
The simple exterior design of Lighthouse Lofts belies the posh interior. Each loft has a unique floor plan and character, but they all share the notion of loft living at its best. Open floor plans, high ceilings, exposed concrete, and floor to ceiling windows give the condos a hard loft feel; while hardwood floors and fine finishes make them luxurious. Lighthouse Lofts even boasts one, very special 4000 square foot condo that was created by merging three lofts into a single home. Amenities at 1097 Howard Street include an oversized elevator, common walls of double-stud construction that helps minimize noise, and a rooftop deck offering glorious views of the surrounding city.
The Lighthouse Lofts' SoMa location puts it right in the center of the San Francisco/SOMA scene. Restaurants and entertainment are within an easy stroll and the Civic Center/UN Plaza Bart Station is less that ½ mile away, putting the Financial District and other downtown San Francisco locations just minutes away.
