Cadillac Classic | Marquee Magic
Stunning, Spacious, Stupendous. These are just some of the glowing descriptions applicable to this unique luxury loft condominium, located in the venerable Marquee Lofts of San Francisco. Redeveloped and reimagined in 1998, this discrete and understated residential enclave is located in the historically significant and nationally acclaimed Don Lee Cadillac Building at 1000 Van Ness Avenue. Designed with an influence of styles derived from Italian Renaissance and Spanish Colonial by esteemed architects Weeks and Day, it was commissioned in the early 1920's by Cadillac to house their showroom and auto repair services and is the largest and one of the most architecturally significant automobile showrooms on San Francisco's historic Auto Row. Today, the building offers a mix of residential, commercial and retail uses.
With inherent notes of a SoHo styled industrial warehouse, Residence 801 is perched high above the city and commands incredible views, a formal entrance that flows naturally into the main entertainment space, with soaring concrete ceilings, fully exposed structural columns, and massive wood sash windows that stretch the view across the city from east to west. Open and spacious as loft living is, the living and dining spaces of this home flow across the entire entertainment area, and the chef's grade kitchen offers stainless steel appliances, Dakota Mahogany granite counters and a custom designed island by Item Studios. The massive main bedroom is privately and separately positioned with a privacy door and offers staggering views over the City. The remodeled bathroom offers spa-like amenities and fixtures with industrial design notes. With an abundance of storage closets, cubbies, lockers and the like, there is room for everything in this spacious urban retreat, including a dedicated parking space and a huge storage locker located right off the hallway.
