Walk to Yerba Buena Gardens, the SF MoMA, the SF Giants Ballpark, and the Ferry Building. Plus, Rincon Hill’s proximity to the Bay Bridge and Financial District makes it ideal for both pedestrians and commuters alike.
Modern Highrise Condos and Walk-up Townhouses
Rincon Hill has seen a recent surge in sleek, modern condo developments in the past decade that transformed the area into an upscale community. Around 2000, San Francisco adopted the new Rincon Hill development plan aimed to accentuate the natural topography of San Francisco by locating the tallest structures at the top of Rincon Hill. Futhermore, the building plan proposed tall, slender, widespread towers interspersed with mid-rise podiums and townhouses. Currently, Rincon Hill’s residential communities include: Lumina, One Rincon Hill, The Harrison, the Infinity, the Metropolitan, the Lansing and many luxury rental buildings. The Plan also called for the redevelopment of Folsom Street as the commercial heart of the neighborhood. The city narrowed the street and widening the sidewalk for an enhanced pedestrian experience. At the ground level of every tower will be commercial space offering cafes, restaurants and shopping.
