Unique 5th-floor urban loft inside the historically designated 1920s-era Samuel Fox building. Designed by master architect William Templeton Johnson & built in 1929 for the Lion Clothing Company. Architectural elements that define this loft include dramatic 8-foot north-facing windows, 16-foot ceilings with exposed ductwork, & concrete flooring. The space includes an elevated sleeping deck and an expansive bathroom. Two primo parking spaces are included & are close to the elevators. From inside the loft, three oversized windows provide views across the street of the historically designated San Diego Trust & Savings building, built in 1928. The views provide a portal to the beautiful materials and design of that building, which was also built by William Templeton Johnson. The common area view deck on the 6th floor offers expansive views of the downtown skyline, the Gaslamp Quarter, and sunsets to the west. The Samuel Fox building in the downtown Financial District at Sixth & Broadway began as the story about the 'Fox and the Lion', and has evolved today as cool residential lofts. This corner of downtown was the epicenter of San Diego's thriving business district. The Lion Clothing Company, owned by Samuel Fox, operated a successful department store until 1984.
