Marquee Lofts at 151 Alice B. Toklas Place

The Marquee Lofts at 151 Alice B. Toklas Place (not to be confused with the Marquee Lofts in uptown Oakland), was the first loft complex to be developed in the "North-of-Market" downtown  San Francisco area.  The structure at 1000 Van Ness Avenue (which houses the lofts at 151 Alice B. Toklas) was built in the early 1920s and was originally used as a Cadillac showroom.  The conversion from showroom to the mixed-use building it is today was completed in 1999 and includes a movie theater, businesses, and a parking garage on the lower floors and residential lofts on the top five stories.

The renovation of 1000 Van Ness was designed by local architect David Baker + Partners whose work includes loft conversions in Emeryville, Oakland, and San Francisco.  The building retains the classic "Old San Francisco" grandeur of the original building, while the 53 residential lofts combine the industrial feel of massive windows, exposed concrete columns, and high ceilings with luxurious finishes that include hardwood floors and gourmet kitchens.  Amenities for Marquee Lofts include a private entrance at 151 Alice B. Toklas Place, elevators, concierge services, parking, and extra storage.
