1635 California Street

Vanguard’s marketing materials describe 1635 California Street as having a “stylish entrance lobby and elevator much like a boutique hotel”.

Permaconstruction At Post And Masonic Presidio

Some brokers’ tour comments for Washington Square West (1725 Washington): “great light, area, and reasonable HOA,” but “little storage space with small rooms and living space”.
