The Home

The Tenderloin community is a contributor to the Uptown Tenderloin Historic District. Designed by Smith O’Brien, it was built as Burns Hammam Baths. The property was identified as a potential landmark for LGBTQ History in San Francisco. Now lies a coliving community filled with 58 units across 5 floors. Artful mosaics, restored brickwork, intricate exterior details and elegant mood lighting are just a few of the design elements that give a nod to the building’s past life as a colorful and diverse gathering place for San Franciscans.

A building thoughtfully designed for coliving

On each residential floor, up to 12 members share a spacious kitchen, dining area, and media lounge. Above, a large panoramic rooftop deck beckons residents looking to catch some sun, host a BBQ, or join in one of Starcity’s weekly events. Below, the building’s cellar level is the best place to play games or enjoy a drink with other residents in a speakeasy environment.

Gathering spaces for community

The building’s entry will play host to a Community Center, in partnership with the Compton's Transgender Cultural District. The center will include a gathering space and event programming for residents and the neighborhood alike.


  • Residential Floor

The residential floors feature up to 12 private rooms that share a spacious chef’s style kitchen, dining, and media room. All private rooms come furnished with essentials including either a queen bed, full-sized bed, or Starcity Airloft, along with a nightstand and closet or wardrobe. Rooms are available with either a private bathroom or a shared bathroom between 2-3 housemates.

The Neighborhood

The Tenderloin

The Tenderloin has long welcomed people of all backgrounds. From being an entertainment destination during the Gold Rush to safe haven for LGBT activism in the 1960s and 70s, today’s Tenderloin celebrates its history. The Tenderloin is a culturally diverse and enduring working class neighborhood that remains one of the most vibrant and affordable choices for newcomers.

A mix of old and new

All across the neighborhood you'll find hidden gems and local hot spots - parks, art galleries and organizations, the city’s most interesting murals, volunteering opportunities (GLIDE), an active Vietnamese community, known as Little Saigon, offering great eats (if you like Pho, try Golden Lotus or Turtle Tower), speakeasies (Bourbon & Branch, Wilson & Wilson), jazz clubs (Black Cat), and live acts (PianoFight). You'll have quick access to mid-Market, Union Square, the BART at Powell Station, and much more.
