The St. Francis Square co-op is a magical complex consisting of many residential buildings taking up nearly a square block in the Western Addition adjacent to Japantown and Lower Pacific Heights in central San Francisco. St. Francis Square is unique in that it is one of the few co-ops in San Francisco; being part of a co-op allows you control over your surroundings and a sense of community you won’t get within many condo buildings. It affords you additional services, such as basic unit maintenance, for worry-free living. Within the community there are shared laundry facilities as well as well-kept greenbelts and playgrounds for all to enjoy. As a mostly owner-occupied property, there is also the benefit of knowing your neighbors and having a stronger sense of community. A leisurely stroll or a pleasureful conversation with your neighbor while sharing a meal on a park bench is unique to this tranquil oasis within the city.
