1030-1042 Polk was constructed in the immediate aftermath of San Francisco’s famous 1906 earthquake by prominent architect Thomas Paterson Ross – a man responsible for over 150 buildings across the Bay Area, including the Alcatraz Theatre and the Squire House. Known as the Baldwin Apartments, the building balances historic charm, modern amenities, and access to city staples from its ultra-accessible Lower Nob Hill location.
With an easily recognizable blue and white color scheme and unique external accents, 1030-1042 Polk still manages to stand out over 100 years after its construction. An elevator and gated access are just some of the community amenities, while apartments offer hardwood floors, in-unit laundry, and more.
1030-1042 Polk is extremely walkable, rideable, and bikeable – BART, Muni, and Van Ness tech shuttles are nearby for commuters and city explorers, with Downtown, the Financial District, Nob Hill, and Japantown in close proximity. Dog-friendly Lafayette Park means extensive green space is just a half mile away, and local favorites like The Saratoga, Bourbon & Branch, and Great American Music Hall represent some of the best food, drink, and entertainment in San Francisco.
