Shipyard at Hunters Point

December, 2018: Chase, Citi, and Wells Fargo announced in late December 2018 that they have stopped offering mortgages at the Shipyard citing “reasons related to unresolved questions about the safety of the land where mega-developer Lennar Corp has built about 450 homes and is planning thousands more.” – SF Chronicle

Once a San Francisco Naval Base home to high-paying blue-collar jobs that were the economic engine of the nearby Bayview and Visitacion Valley neighborhoods. Then the naval base closed and sat empty while its future was discussed and debated by wise women and men.

The Navy eventually took all their stuff and claims to have left no trace behind, but not everyone agrees on that claim. The development rights were sold to the highest bidder for a hefty sum, bringing about redevelopment under a decades-long master plan.

Redevelopment brings rebranding, so modern marketing now calls the neighborhood The Shipyard. An MLS search still puts all the new construction in a neighborhood called Hunters Point that most think of as the Bayview.

The Shipyard Neighborhood Vibe

The Shipyard is a master-planned community, and as of 2018, about eight buildings have been completed in the first phase by the developer. The neighborhood is not without controversy due to historical uses that involved radioactive waste disposal at the former naval base, and much of the land has yet to be turned over for development.


Popular Shipyard Home Styles

The Shipyard so far offers buildings with two distinct styles. One type of building is a traditional condominium mid-rise building with multiple homes per floor. Townhome-style buildings with a garage and small private outdoor space on the ground floor are also available.


Getting Around in The Shipyard

The Shipyard offers residents private shuttle service to connect with Muni light rail and additional destinations popular with residents of the neighborhood. While transit and biking are options, we’d classify it as a neighborhood in which you’re likely to be happier with a car.
