    More About the Building

    In addition to being the perfect location for students of the (currently but soon to be renamed) Hastings College of Law, homes at the converted Book Concern Building put urban life at your front doorstep. If being close to theaters, museums, Hayes Valley, SOMA, and Union Square is important, then this building is perfectly located for what you are looking for.

    The Book Concern building was originally designed by Lewis Hobart, the same designer of Grace Cathedral. Built in 1908, the building has a fascinating history. There is no parking in the building, and it’s a great location to be if you don’t have a car. If you do have a car, there are plenty of garages nearby that generally have long-term parking spaces for lease.
