A rare opportunity to live in a unique historic building in one of the world's most famous neighborhoods. Designed with sleek, luxury living in mind, the Jackson Square has just 13 residences, perched above an elegant boutique shop and nestled among the City's finest restaurants & shops.

In 2008, the building was entirely renovated behind the historic facade into modern, loft style condominiums and has the distinction of being the first and only residence in this historic waterfront district formerly known as the Barbary Coast.
