“Unveiled to San Francisco in 1914 as The Call Building, The Montgomery has long been an architectural gem. Now, having undergone a [$70MM conversion from office to residential space], seismic retrofit, and complete interior redesign, The Montgomery combines the finest elements of interior modern craftsmanship to complement its elegant architectural exterior. It stands as the ultimate expression of city living. Timeless character with a bold new expression.” And we got the scoop, so read on!
The “Celebrating the Montgomery” event happened a couple weeks ago and more than 350 “interest list”, SF Museum & Historical Society folks, and other VIPs got a first look at the three display homes: a 2 bedroom; a one-bedroom plus; and a studio. All the models were on the third floor, with urban views from the huge “operable” windows. Tom Owens, the developer and a big history buff, pledged $1000 to the SF Museum & Historical Society ($107,000 in all) for every unit sold. Seventeen homes were released in the initial release and after a few days, 11 were reserved. The initial release of homes were scattered throughout the floors, mostly on the Ambrose Bierce Alley side (that side has less views, slightly darker than the rest of the bldg.). They released 6 more this week. So far, of the 23 released, 17 are reserved. There is a big list for the 2 bedrooms which have yet to be released. Move-in is anticipated for the fall sometime around September-November.
The newer, larger sales center that recently opened is on the corner of Annie and Jessie Streets, at the rear of the building. Open daily: 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. (415) 512-7474. The 74 New Montgomery sales center will remain open as well.
