Western Addition Neighborhood Vibe

The western addition has a long and storied role in the history, development, and redevelopment of San Francisco. In the 1960s, Pacific Heights was still a part of the MLS sub-district. Over the years, as the neighborhoods to north and south have become notably more expensive, the geographic MLS boundaries of this neighborhood have gotten smaller. The neighborhood was one of the first “redevelopment” projects in San Francisco, and the lessons learned from early HUD developments and thinking about urban redevelopment still affect the neighborhood.

 

Popular Western Addition Home Styles

You won’t find skyscrapers in the neighborhood, with 4 – 5 stories being about the tallest anything rises. On the southeast side of the neighborhood, you’ll find 1970s developments built with HUD funds, while the northwest corner is home to Victorians that were relocated when Japantown was developed. While you will find some single-family homes throughout the neighborhood, it’s mostly a neighborhood of multi-unit buildings and condos in smaller to medium sized associations.

 

Getting Around in Western Addition

Divisadero bus lines serve the western side of the neighborhood, while the southwest side is a several-block walk to Market Street transit options. Centrally located and very walkable.
