Under the Bay Bridge is a scenic stretch of waterfront property known as South Beach. One of San Francisco’s newest neighborhoods, most of it didn’t exist before 1989 when an earthquake toppled the overhead Embarcadero Freeway. Before the earthquake, South Beach was a warehouse district.
Today, South Beach is reaching the dramatic potential of its light and views with great restaurants and a spectacular waterfront promenade. You’ll find brick-and-timber lofts in converted warehouses on Bryant, Delancey, Beale, and Spear Streets. You can pay as much for a sought-after South Beach loft as for a condominium in Pacific Heights. Options in South Beach are brand-new luxury units with stunning views at One Embarcadero South and The Brannan Towers or equally stylish units at the more seasoned Portside and Baycrest complexes. There are also options for first time homebuyers as many buildings have smaller units where first-time homebuyers can find space.
