Historic Auto Row Resource in Play, Zoned for 130 Feet in Height
Historic Auto Row Resource in Play Zoned for Feet

Designed by the O’Brien Brothers and built to serve as a public garage back in 1925, the three-level building on the northwest corner of Franklin and Pine was recently identified as “one of the best examples of a public garage in [San Francisco’s Historic Auto Row] area, due to its longevity, integrity, and capacity” and likely eligible to be added to California’s Register of Historical Resources, making it a Category A historical resource per the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA).

That being said, the corner site, which had been leased to “The Stable,” which specialized in servicing Porsches for over four decades before shuttering a few years ago, is zoned for development up to 130 feet in height.

And with that in mind, 1601 Franklin Street, which has been short-term leased to another auto repair shop, is now on the market and positioned as an “excellent investment opportunity located in the highly desirable neighborhood,” without a formally printed price.
