The Portside

“Art Deco San Francisco style.” – Matt

“Meander through multiple urban ‘meadows’ above a ground floor Whole Foods Market.” – Matt

The Portside was completed in two phases, in 1994 and 1997, and is home to 220 residences at 38 Bryant and 403 Main in the South Beach neighborhood of San Francisco. The Portside sports rounded corners, railings reminiscent of a cruise ship, and porthole-type accent windows.

Home sizes at The Portside begin at about 480 square feet and range up to nearly 1,400 square feet. Homes are available in studio, one-bedroom, two-bedroom, and three-bedroom layouts. Building amenities include an outdoor pool, spa and sun deck, two fitness centers (one per building), on-site management, and 24-hour security.

More About the Building

With a distinct nautical look and a location across the Embarcadero from San Francisco Bay, The Portside sports rounded corners, railings reminiscent of a cruise ship, and porthole-type accent windows. Portside I (38 Bryant) was built in 1994 and Portside II (403 Main) followed in 1997.

The South Beach area has grown up around the Portside since the 1990s, with a revitalized Embarcadero, the Ferry Building and AT&T Park (home of the World Series-winning San Francisco Giants) all a short distance away. Commuters have quick and easy access to MUNI on the Embarcadero, Caltrain at 4th & King Streets, and BART on Market Street. Car commuters can reach 280, 101 and the Bay Bridge within a few blocks of home.
