SAN FRANCISCO DOWNTOWN LIVING
Upper South Beach is nestled between Market St and the Bay Bridge. It is the part of the South Beach MLS district in the 94105 zip code. The high rise condominiums on Rincon Hill also live in Upper South Beach. The Infinity Lumina, and One Rincon are the most prominent buildings, and have contributed to Upper South Beach growing faster than anywhere else in San Francisco.
Lower South Beach is between the Bay Bridge and the ballpark. It is also part of South Beach MLS district, but with a 94107 zip code. The Brannan, Watermark, and One Embarcadero South are popular, but there are also some great mid-size buildings, as well as some of most authentic loft condominiums the city has to offer. The Giants Ballpark is a welcome neighbor here.
South Beach Rentals and tucked in under the Caltrain Station, Berry South Beach is the smallest part of the South Beach MLS district, and has a 94158 zip code. Only four condominium buildings in the entire neighborhood. 235-255-325 Berry are similar, each with 100 2-bedroom units facing the water. Across the street, Arterra (300 Berry) has city views from its sixteen floors.
The Financial District has several 35+ unit buildings, some having views from forty stories up. If corporate is not your style, you don’t belong here. Since San Francisco adheres to east coast market hours, this area may be quiet early evening and during the weekends. The area close to Union Square is the exception and provides a vibrant ambiance.
Previously the eastern part of SOMA, the Yerba Buena MLS District is bounded by Market, Fifth, the 80 freeway, and Rincon Hill. The north part is where the city’s four ultra luxe high end residential towers live. Just think five star hotel in both name and amenities. This great location is also home to a half dozen full service loft and condominium buildings.
Yerba Buena Rentals District Officially known as the SOMA MLS District, this area is better described as West Soma. Bounded by Market, the 101 & 80 freeways, and almost 5th St, the personality has changed since Twitter moved in. Some very large residential developments under construction. The character of this gritty urban area is transitioning up.
