909 Tennessee

As a plugged-in reader first reported the day the nine sealed bids for 909 Tennessee were opened and read aloud, the highest bid came in at $1,310,000 from a current property owner in Dogpatch.

And among the items in front of today’s San Francisco Board of Supervisors meeting, a resolution approving the sale of the former firehouse.

    And will we promptly see the demolition of this building for more banal condos? Probably. It’s a sad day when a great city goes broke and sells off it’s architectural heritage.

    If the city wills it so.
    No one ever really owns their property in SF.

    It was Moe, He’s a pretty well known dogpatch resident.
    I think his full name is Moe Moneythanbrains.

    Interesting number; higher than I would have guessed.
    I considered bidding on this, but the two years and an additional million in renovations pushed me away.

    What a gorgeous facade! I hope whoever bought it will retain the exterior of the building.

    I was the winner of the auction and no, there will be no demolishing the structure, I bought the building because I’ve loved it for nearly two decades and want to both preserve and extend it.
    It’s an amazing unique property in a neighborhood I’ve lived in (on that block and on that street) I’m already invested in and I love.

    Any block, anywhere, should be so lucky. I guess Socketsite will update on any changes – is the building commercial space?

  11. Outstanding DpgpatchSF! So happy to hear you plan to keep this architectural gem. Best wishes.
