Potrero Hill & Dogpatch
The proximity of these neighborhoods to all types of transportation, including the T Muni Line on 3rd Street, Caltrain to the Valley, and highways 101 and 280, make it uniquely convenient for getting to work--down to Silicon Valley or in to Downtown SF.
Walk around the corner to the Caltrain station! Drive three blocks to 280 Southbound. A five min walk to Muni 3rd St; arrive downtown at the Ferry Bldg in 30 mins.
First inhabited by the families of industrial and dock workers, Dogpatch and Potrero Hill survived the 1906 earthquake far more intact than almost any other neighborhood.
The architectural style of Dogpatch spans at least ten decades of styes, while Potrero Hill is predominantly Victorian and Edwardian.
In 2002, Dogpatch was officially designated as an historic district of the city of San Francisco. As a result many former factories and warehouses have been adapted and transformed into live/work lofts, galleries, restaurants and breweries, or technology company headquarters, rather than being torn down.
If anything is true about the eastern negibhorhoods of Dogpatch, Potrero Hill, and Mission Bay today is that change is constant. Today these neighborhoods are a hotbed of new construction; former vacant lots are now housing and vacant warehouses are now breweries, and wineries, galleries, dog daycare, workshops for indie makers.
Across 16th Steet in Mission Bay is the new UCSF Research campus, the Benioff Children's Hospital, the Dropbox campus, and a new arena for our Golden State Warriors.
Foodies are treated to a wide array of innovative local options. Potrero Hill's 18th Street is four blocks of restaurants, wine bars, and diners. And 20th Street has four blocks of retailers, wine, daycare, elementary school and the family-run Good Life Grocery.
Dogpatch's 22nd Street is lined with dining options and hidden throughout the neighborhood--on and off 3rd Street--are a variety of business tucked into historic structures.
And finally, Esprit Park is a lively dog park and jogging track. The neighborhood enjoys active residents who populate at least four non-profit organizations that lobby city hall for a variety of physical improvements. There's a monthly Dogpatch street fair where merchants show-off their creations.
These two evolving neighborhoods on the sunny east side of the city are ideally situated near transportation, making for a wise real estate investment.
