General Information

Stretching from 2nd to 5th and Market to Harrison Streets, the Yerba Buena Neighborhood today is one of San Francisco’s most dynamic communities.

In 1966 the San Francisco Redevelopment Agency (SFRA) and the Board of Supervisors designated the Yerba Buena Neighborhood as an urban renewal area. After years of careful planning and hard work, the community dream of a dynamic urban cultural center with more than two dozen galleries and museums, recreational and entertainment facilities, activities for children and families, housing, hotels, shopping, and fine dining became a reality.

Notable buildings that have opened in the neighborhood are the Moscone Center (1981), The San Francisco Marriott (1989) that brought a wave of luxury and boutique hotels to the area, Yerba Buena Gardens (1993), and SFMOMA (1995). The Metreon and Westfield San Francisco Centre have brought renewed retail to the area, and the Transbay Redevelopment Project, under construction now, is further changing the face of the neighborhood.
