Not quite as glamorous as the Financial District, not quite as tough as the Tenderloin. Midrise mixed-use buildings dominate in the district that includes tourist-heavy destinations and world-class shopping district Union Square.

    Downtown Neighborhood Vibe

    You’re just as likely to rub elbows with tourists as you are with your neighbors in this area that includes the hotels and shopping hot-spots of Union Square. It’s a bustling district, chock full of restaurants, famous retailers, the famous cable-car turnaround, and plenty of San Francisco character.


    Popular Downtown Home Styles

    Single-family homes in the Downtown neighborhood can be counted on no more than a couple of hands. Condos and apartment buildings are the name of the game here, ranging from small, turn-of-the-last-century buildings to large highrise developments. All of these are surrounded by hotels, tourists, and the commercial zones that cater to them.


    Getting Around in Downtown

    Muni bus lines, light-rail lines, and BART all serve this bustling district. It’s all about your feet, your bike (if you’re brave), and public transportation in this neighborhood, where it’s common for condos to be offered for sale without a parking space included. And even if you have parking — do you want to hassle with that traffic?
