Cathedral Hill is one of the best residential neighborhoods in San Francisco. It is centered around St Mary’s Cathedral and is surrounded by a few more churches- rightfully living up to it’s name. Not only is Cathedral Hill teeming with small businesses and chains, it’s also close to Japantown, Downtown, Civic Center/Van Ness, Tenderloin and Nob Hill. It’s a dream location for those who seek safety and a quiet neighborhood BUT don’t necessarily want to sacrifice accessibility and proximity to dining, recreation and shopping options.
Among the top condominiums in the neighborhood is Daniel Burnham Court. Built in 1987, the condo consists of two high rise towers and boasts of high class amenities- pool, gym, sauna, spa, roof garden, 24hr security, mail service, the works. It is also home to commercial spaces which include a real estate brokerage (Better Homes and Gardens | Mason McDuffie), a wireless carrier (Verizon), FedEx and medical clinics, to name a few.
I was fortunate enough to catch up with the General Manager Helene Dellanini. Her schedule only allowed for 3 questions but we appreciate her accommodation. Here’s an excerpt:
DCC: DBC is logistically ideal. Are there other perks to living in Daniel Burnham Court?
HD: It’s proximity to entertainment like the Symphony and the Opera. Convenience to transit options. They’re also building a California Pacific medical Center right across from us. CPMC is one of the prime hospitals and it’s a great addition.
DCC: Are the residential and the commercial spaces under the same management?
HD: We operate separately but team up to keep Daniel Burnham Court operating at it’s best.
DCC: What would you say is the demographic of homeowners here?
HD: Very broad. We have very young tech people and our original owners who are now retired.
