What: The latest condominium loft project just off Market Street (at 5th Street) sits on a plaza behind the historic San Francisco Mint, where California’s vast 19th century resources of gold and silver were turned into currency. In 2015, the resources are intellectual, and so is the tech corridor that has transformed the neighborhood over the past decade, the location of 6 Mint Plaza is unbeatable. Now a mix of 1, 2, and 3-bed units, the vintage reinforced concrete building still retains some rough finishes, paired with tilting steel industrial windows, glazed interior partitions, and polished concrete floors.
Occupying the entire 9th floor, the project’s trophy unit is the enormous 3-bed, 3.5-bath penthouse (a glimpse of the kitchen, below) which has not yet been priced or offered.
