I was driving by the Painted Ladies on Steiner Street the other day. I got to the corner of Grove Street where the HUGE white house (which has been a school for years) on the corner is and saw spray painted on the retaining wall: 802, 804, 808. I though what the heck? Something’s going on-that’s not random enough for graffiti.
Well, here’s what’s going on I found out via SF Curbed. The painted ladies are finally getting a date. There are 3 Painted Gentlemen joining the 7 ladies on post card row. Given San Francisco, I’m sure there are some women that would agree-7 women, 3 men.
Part of building at the corner of Grove and Steiner is getting demolished, making way for three new single family homes-dubbed ‘The Painted Gentlemen’.
No pictures or drawings yet of what is proposed. The area where they will be built is to the left of this photo. Grove Street is on the left most portion of this picture. 722 Steiner (in green) is currently on the market. The homes would be across the Street.
Here’s the blurb on Curbed.
