143 Albion Great Room

The former meeting hall at 143 Albion Street, which was once home to San Francisco’s Socialist Party, as well as to Tom Waddel, the late founder of the Gay Games, has traded hands for a reported $6.5 million.

Built in 1907 and originally known as Tivoli Hall (or ‘Equality Hall’ when the Socialists were in the house), the Mission District property was seismically retrofitted and remodeled as a 4,500-square-foot home with a three-story great room in 2009. It hit the market last month newly dubbed ‘Albion Hall’.

The buyer was represented by an agent at Bubble Real Estate.  And no, we’re not being flippant.

      Yes, and I’m loving every bit of it! Capitalism wins!

        I know, isn’t New San Francisco great?

          “New”? San Francisco has always been driven by capitalism, going back to the railroad barons and the gold rush.

            i won’t insult you by saying you don’t know what capitalism is, but I’m curious if you can (correctly) define it without looking it up.

    I watched Million Dollar Listing, the San Francisco Edition on Bravo and the agents on the show made me cringe. It also made me realize how overpriced and second rate properties are in SF. The NYC edition is so much better.

      Yes, people will seem to pay anything just to have a SF zipcode.
