A renovated urban compound with a colorful mural at 2700 Bryant Street in the Inner Mission is on the market. The property is selling for 20-times what it last sold for in 1997 — $200,000 — a bargain by today’s standards.
The listing is advertised as a flexible live-work space “for a start-up, film editing, workshop studios, art gallery or a compound for family and frequent guests.” The building’s primary use has been commercial, and was it handball center and warehouse in its previous life.
The property is going for $1,115 per square foot. Public records show the home was built in 1910 and is comprised of two units. The MLS listing by Zephyr denotes that 2700 Bryant is two stories with a mezzanine.
Situated on a 3,518-square-foot lot, the three-level 4,341-square-foot building boasts three bedrooms, two kitchens, an office loft, workshop and two garages for up to five vehicles. The mural is on the northeast corner of the low-rise portion of the property on Bryant and 25th, and the adjoining unit has traditional wood siding.
For decades, murals have long served as a creative platform for local artists and community organizations to express matters such as political statements, need for change, and cultural heritage of Latino roots in the Mission District. Since the 1960s, vivid murals have decorated walls, buildings and fences.
The mural established in 2007 at 2700 Bryant Street is named after a Mahatma Ghandi quote “Be the change you want to see in the world” a collaborative endeavor by Precita Eyes Muralists lead by Susan Cervantes and a group of local students. There were community meetings to discuss content before the acrylic paint brushed the stucco canvas.
2700 Bryant Street is marketed as “SF Mission Possible.” It will be the buyer’s mission to accept paying a $5 million price tag or more to complete the transaction.
There will be no open houses and the property can be seen by appointment only.
