Built in 1907, the property became one of the earliest Filipino-owned buildings in the South of Market Area when it was purchased in the 1920s by members of The Gran Oriente Filipino Masonic fraternity.
"The Gran Oriente Hotel is one of the most important historic sites for the Filipino community in SOMA and San Francisco. We are very excited to work with Mission Housing, the City, and all community stakeholders to preserve the Gran Oriente as permanent affordable housing, designate the site as a historical landmark, and restore the legacy of the Gran Oriente as one the first Filipino-owned properties in the South of Market." said Raquel Redondiez, SOMA Pilipinas Director.
