The building has been substantially improved over the years by an HOA that meticulously maintains and upgrades the premises when necessary. During the last 12 years the foundations and basic structure have been improved and updated for safety purposes with the installation of new steel beams and very substantial shear walls, all being anchored to the foundation. Overall this building complex is in very good condition.
Presidio Heights is Pacific Heights without the pretension. While some of the grandest homes in the city are found in this neighborhood, including the cluster of mansions circled around the gated enclave of Presidio Terrace, Presidio Heights is very much a family-friendly community. On most days you can find families with young kids picnicking in Presidio Park, or romping through the nearby Julius Kahn playground. Preschools in the neighborhood include the Montessori Children's House and the Temple Emanu-El Pre-School. Local elementary School Claire Lillienthal scores in the upper 10% of all California elementary schools.
The older, established homes along the wide, quiet streets of Presidio Heights are mainly 3-story, large, and complete with front and back yards. This is a primarily residential neighborhood, with nearby shopping to be found in the adjoining Laurel Heights district.
This is an ecumenical neighborhood. The stately dome of Temple Emanuel, the Jewish synagogue on Arguello is just around the corner from the Little Sisters of the Poor on Lake Street. Further down California Street the Jewish Community Center welcomes all to its first-rate health club and nightly performance series of dance, music, and theater. Across the street, Ella's, is much loved for its unpretentious comfort food and weekend brunch. Upscale restaurants clustered on Sacramento Street include Garibaldi's, Spruce and Cafe Sociale. The intimate, oozing with ambiance G Bar, makes a great place to meet for Martinis.
