Dogpatch / Central Waterfront
Populated in the late 1800’s by industrial workers and their families, Dogpatch was one of the few areas in San Francisco to survive the 1906 earthquake and fire. Dogpatch and its railroad linkage made it an outlying neighborhood of San Francisco. In 2002, Dogpatch became an officially designated historic district of the city of San Francisco. Residential real estate options in Dogpatch/Central Waterfront include Victorian cottages constructed in the 1860’s. Penthouse lofts feature Downtown, East Bay and Bay Bridge views, private patios and garages. Many live/work lofts in historic buildings have expansive windows and exposed brick walls. Many of the neighborhood’s former factories, warehouses, shipyards and mills have become live/work lofts, high-tech professional work spaces and trendy restaurants. Dogpatch’s location along the 3rd street Muni Light Rail Line and its close proximity to Caltrain and Highways 101 and 280 makes for easy commuting throughout the Bay Area. Dogpatch foodies enjoy innovative foods from a variety of local restaurants. Nearby, Potrero Hill’s 18th Street corridor features trendy bars, cafes and restaurants. On sunny days, locals gather at Esprit Park and a short Muni ride takes residents downtown, where they can enjoy the farmers’ market at the Ferry Plaza and the Embarcadero.
