Stonestown Neighborhood Vibe

San Francisco State Univesity, Stonestown Mall, and Park Merced dominate the neighborhood. It’s an interesting combination of suburban mall complex, university housing and facilities, and a large rental development with thousands of homes that is slated for a major re-development, bringing tens of thousands of new rental homes to the neighborhood. There are lots of outdoor opportunities. Ft. Funston, Lake Merced, and the Pacific Ocean are all incredibly convenient.


Popular Stonestown Home Styles

Park Merced offers rental homes in tower buildings, traditional apartments, and townhouse style homes. SFSU offers students on-campus housing that looks and feels like, well, on-campus housing. Lakeside is immediately to the east, and the Pacific Ocean is immediately to the west.


Getting Around in Stonestown

The K and M lines provide Muni light-rail service to the neighborhood, but because the area is on the southwest edge of town, it can take a while for Muni service to get you where you’re going. The area was developed assuming you have a car, and while you’ll probably find transit to and from the neighborhood much quicker with a car, you can certainly make it without one.
