1725 Montgomery is a part of San Francisco History

The historical 1725 Montgomery Street building is set in the North Beach neighborhood in San Francisco. It laid at the edge of the water during the Gold Rush boom in the 1800’s, which fueled the growth of the city. Today it finds itself at the heart of the financial district, surrounded by landmarks such as the Coit Tower and Lombard Street. 1725 Montgomery Street’s restoration exposed traditional brick walls while adding modern touches, giving it its iconic look.
