General Information

South Beach is not only one of the city’s newest, up-and-coming neighborhoods, it’s one of the fastest growing. Located South of Market, along the Embarcadero waterfront, the South Beach neighborhood has some of the hottest properties in San Francisco. With it’s proximity to the Financial District and the newly renovated waterfront (home to some of San Francisco’s best gourmet eateries), South Beach is definitely one of the city’s most ideal places to live, work and play.

For decades, the real estate in the South Beach neighborhood of San Francisco had mainly consisted of warehouses, storage yards and dilapidated piers. Beginning in 1981, the city began to transform the area into a mixed-use development. Now it is one of the ritziest neighborhoods in the city, catering to the well-heeled and well-deserved. Considered by some to be the “new Nob Hill,” South Beach has some of the most desirable and valued condominiums in San Francisco. From sleek new high-rise towers to trendy low-rise lofts, South Beach is more than just a neighborhood, it’s a lifestyle.
