Bayview – Hunters Point

If you are south of Cesar Chavez and east of the 101, you’re likely in Bayview – Hunters Point.  Once upon a time, it was a neighborhood economically powered by the well-paying blue-collar jobs at the nearby Hunters Point Naval Base.

Then urban flight, naval base closure, and indifference from City Hall created the challenges and opportunities of today and tomorrow.

Bayview-Hunters Point — outside of The Shipyard — is well-served by city transit and is perfectly positioned for Silicon Valley commuters. One of the last “affordable” outposts for a single-family home in the city?

Bayview – Hunters Point Neighborhood Vibe

If you are south of Cesar Chavez and east of the 101, you’re in the Bayview with four small exceptions: Silver Terrace, Bayview Heights, Candlestick Point, and The Shipyard.

The San Francisco Bay bounds what was the naval base at Hunters Point and is now The Shipyard along the east. The north end is defined by Cesar Chavez and is primarily industrial-park in nature. India Basin is a beautiful “bay within a bay” and much of the land fronting it is prime real estate for future development.

3rd Street is the commercial and transit corridor for the neighborhood, and life without a car in the Bayview is realistic based on transit considerations.

The eastern end of the neighborhood was once a naval station and is being redeveloped and rebranded as The Shipyard. The Shipyard is a master-planned community, and as of 2018, about eight buildings have been completed by the developer. The neighborhood is not without controversy due to historical uses that involved radioactive waste disposal at the former naval base, and much of the land has yet to be turned over for development.


Popular Bayview – Hunters Point Home Styles

It really depends on where you are. Most of the Bayview was built as single-family homes with 25′ wide lots. However, there are plenty of unit and apartment buildings mixed in, as well as some newer developments like 5800 3rd St. found in the neighborhood.

If you’re in The Shipyard, you’ll be surrounded by brand-new master-planned construction.


Getting Around in Bayview – Hunters Point

The T-Third light-rail line bisects the neighborhood along 3rd Street, and the neighborhood also has Muni bus service. The Shipyard offers residents a private shuttle. While transit and bicycling are absolutely options, we’d classify it as a car-dependent neighborhood for the most part.
