Building History

In 1954, the Architectural Forum noted that Angus McSweeney had completed a design for a new apartment building in San Francisco's Russian Hill neighborhood: "Ready for bid: a $2 million, 14-story luxury apartment for San Francisco's Russian Hill. Architect Angus McSweeney and Attorney Philip Barnett plan 98 three-to-five-room apartments plus four hillside floors to garage 107 autos. The building typifies the gradual replacement of the quaint homes built after the '06 fire with tall apartments in one of the city's toniest close-in residential sectors." (See "Apartments and Hotels," Architectural Record, vol. 100, no. 1, 01/1954, p. 45.)
