Tennessee. Minnesota. Illinois. You haven’t left San Francisco, you’ve arrived in the Dogpatch. Originally a hard-scrabble neighborhood, it’s a uniquely San Francisco juxtaposition of Victorians, industrial warehouses, modern condo buildings, and prime waterfront acreage transforming from humble blue-collar beginnings along the eastern shoreline of San Francisco.

Dogpatch Neighborhood Vibe

Professional creative. Hang out at the indoor climbing spot, sample specialty cheeses,  or say howdy as you pass the Hell’s Angels’ clubhouse.


Popular Dogpatch Home Styles

A “working man’s” neighborhood, it’s home to Victorians built from free plans in the SF newspaper at the turn of the century (no, the one before that), condominiums in conversion warehouses, and plenty of not-decorative industrial and light-industrial warehouses.


Getting Around in The Dogpatch

The T-Third Muni light rail began service to the neighborhood in 2007, running along 3rd Street from Visitacion Valley north to Mission Bay. Caltrain has a neighborhood stop for Silicon Valley commuters, bus lines serve the neighborhood, and access to I-280 is in the neighborhood.

More About The Dogpatch

Along Tennessee and Minnesota streets you’ll find an eclectic mix of historic Victorian homes – including some designed by Jon Cotter Pelton Jr., who published his home designs in the San Francisco Evening Bulletin for free so that the city’s working class could build an affordable home – as well as modern lofts and condominiums.

The neighborhood is a mix of older homes, older light-industrial/industrial buildings, and some more recent condo and loft projects. Developers are rapidly transforming historic buildings, warehouses, and vacant or abandoned lots into office space and residential condominium homes. The Central Waterfront is also home to the officially designated Dogpatch Historic District.


Among the many historic resources in the neighborhood is Pier 70, which is currently being re-developed into a mixed-use development by Forest City. For over 150 years, Pier 70 was home to shipbuilding and repair and it played a major role in the industrialization of the Western United States and our war efforts.


The 2007 expansion of the T-Third Muni-light rail service into the neighborhood along 3rd Street was a transformational event in the development of the neighborhood, and plenty of boutiques and coffee shops have opened along the light rail corridor over the past several years. Transit to downtown is convenient, while commuters to Silicon Valley also love the neighborhood for the easy access to I-280.
