Marina

Where Biff met Buffy and they rented their first apartment so they could jog to Crossfit together. Marina Green, yacht clubs, Ft. Mason, and front-row views from the Golden Gate Bridge to Alcatraz and the East Bay. This is as north as San Francisco goes.

Marina Neighborhood Vibe

It’s an upscale neighborhood with a reputation — deserved or not — for Barbie & Ken clones shopping at swanky boutiques, drinking artisanal cocktails, and doing hot yoga in expensive workout clothes. It’s also known for its amazing views of the Bay, Alcatraz, and the Golden Gate Bridge and proximity to Crissy Field and the Marina Green. 

 

Popular Marina Home Styles

Real estate in the Marina consists of many single-family homes, as well as condominiums in smaller buildings and some medium-sized apartment buildings. There are some smaller unit buildings as well. “Marina Style” barrel front homes and Art Deco style buildings are a hallmark of the area.

 

Getting Around in The Marina

The good news is that the Marina is one of the flattest neighborhoods in town – a treat for runners and walkers both as they stroll through Ft. Mason, the Marina Green, or Crissy Field. (The bad news, though, is that most of the area is on ground that will liquefy during an earthquake, a term known as liquefaction.) Transit options consist of a handful of Muni buses. Commuters who drive to the North Bay have a direct approach to the Golden Gate Bridge on Doyle Drive. South- or east-bound commuters will have a slog across town to get to the Bay Bridge or to 280 South.

More About the Marina

Located at the north end of San Francisco, the Marina has stunning views of iconic San Francisco backdrops like the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz Island, Angel Island, and the Palace of Fine Arts. This district is bounded roughly on the south by Lombard Street, by Lyon to the west, and Van Ness to the east. If you remember any video footage from the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake, odds are what you saw was filmed in this ‘hood because it is primarily built on landfill debris from the 1906 earthquake and fire.

The good news is that The Marina is one of the flattest neighborhoods in town – a treat for runners and walkers both as they stroll through Ft. Mason, Marina Green, or Crissy Field. The bad news, though, is that most of the area is on ground that will liquefy during an earthquake, a phenomenon known as liquefaction.

Homes for sale in the Marina District offer convenient access to the neighborhood shopping district along Chestnut Street. The shops in the area are a mix of well-known chain stores and swanky boutiques. If you’ve got a sweet tooth, be sure to try a cupcake at Kara’s on Scott Street (a personal favorite of mine). The Marina is also a happening nightlife destination for young professionals, and some great restaurants (serving things other than cupcakes) can also be found in the neighborhood. Maybeck’s is a Jackson Fuller favorite.

Real estate in the Marina neighborhood consists of many single-family homes, as well as condominiums in smaller buildings and some medium-sized apartment buildings. There are some smaller unit buildings as well. “Marina Style” barrel front homes and art deco style buildings are a hallmark of the area.
