At the intersection of Civic Center and Hayes Valley, this Symphony Towers studio reminds us that looks can be deceiving. While one may think a studio can't have it all this one proves us wrong. It is large enough to house a grand piano and host jazz style parties, while admiring the illuminated views of City Hall. Comfortable as a starter home or perfect as a Pied a Terre.
This is an ideal home for Symphony, Ballet, Jazz, Opera or Museum lovers, they are all at your doorstep. For the gastronomically inclined award-winning Hayes Valley restaurants, cafes and boutiques are mere blocks away.
The unit has been updated with new hardwood style floors, granite counters, new cabinet hardware, in-unit washer/dryer, and a deeded storage unit. With a Walkscore of 99, this is a Walker's Paradise.

Residents of the Van Ness / Civic Center neighborhood can walk to it all. The cultural center of the city, including the War Memorial Opera House, Herbst Theatre, Davis Symphony Hall, Orpheum Theatre, Brooks Hall the Civic Auditorium and the new Asian Museum, is just steps away. The federal, state, and city government offices are a short walk. And for those working downtown in Financial District, public transportation makes the commute a matter of minutes from the Civic Center BART Station.
The neighborhood is defined by high-rise luxury condos, upscale apartment buildings, and live/work lofts. Independent cinemas, along with 14-screen multiplexes, bookstores, coffee shops and cafes throng the main corridor of Van Ness Avenue. Nearby, the neighborhoods of Hayes Valley, Russian Hill and China Town offer trendy restaurants boasting chefs working at the height of their powers. Hidden boutiques with one-of-a-kind treasures wait to be discovered. And nearby nightspots pulse with life until dawn.
For those in search of a low-maintenance urban lifestyle, this is city living at its best.
