There are several other notable apartment buildings besides 700 Steiner Street in the Alamo Square Historic District. They were developed later than most of the townhouses, generally between 1912 and 1934. This reflects a trend evident in many American cities in those years, as living in large single floor apartments in buildings with elevators and other amenities became the housing of choice for many wealthy city residents.
