Yerba Buena

Cultural haven. Home to that high-rise. If any SF neighborhood comes remotely close to vaguely feeling like Manhattan, the hustle and bustle of Yerba Buena probably comes closest. Yes, you are south of Market. But this is Yerba Buena.

    Yerba Buena Neighborhood Vibe

    Yerba Buena was declared an urban renewal area in 1966, and the decades that followed transformed the neighborhood from desolate parking lots to museums, parks, and modern condos in luxury high-rise buildings. Hotels and the Moscone convention center guarantee a continual stream of constantly changing neighborhood visitors and guests.


    Popular Yerba Buena Home Styles

    It’s definitely not a neighborhood of single-family homes; condos built since 1980 define most of the neighborhood. Newer buildings include some of the city’s most notable residential high-rises including 181 Fremont, The Four Seasons, and The St. Regis.


    Getting Around in Yerba Buena

    Don’t drive. Walking is almost always faster unless it’s 4 am. It’s very well-served by transit, including surface bus stops and below-ground light rail stops along Market St. for Muni and BART.

    More About Yerba Buena

    The Board of Supervisors designated the Yerba Buena neighborhood as an urban renewal area in 1966, and in the decades that have followed the neighborhood has undergone an amazing transformation. Yerba Buena condos have risen up across an area that was once home to desolate parking lots. Once empty lots are now filled with bustling pedestrian corridors, urban parks, world-class museums, restaurants, hotels, and world-class luxury condo buildings like The Four Seasons.

    Below are just a few significant neighborhood milestones:

    • The Moscone Convention Center opened in 1981, followed by The San Francisco Marriott in 1989 (its grand opening day was also the day of the Loma Prieta earthquake)
    • Yerba Buena Gardens – an award-winning 5.5-acre urban oasis sits on top of the Moscone Center – opened in 1993.
    • The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art opened its doors to the neighborhood in 1995.

    The “official” Yerba Buena Community Benefits district runs east to west from 2nd to 5th and north to south from Market to Harrison Streets.

    The neighborhood is home to a variety of housing options from senior housing and below-market rate housing to full-amenity luxury condos in soaring high-rise towers. It’s a high-density neighborhood where you aren’t likely to find a single-family home.
