SOMA is the up-and-coming San Francisco area, with revitalization efforts that have transformed its neighborhoods and commerce. Here, design and tech have rejuvenated the area, with dot-com successes and influences breathing new life into the streets and making it home to some of the best bars, eateries, and clubs that The City has to offer.
Housing largely consists of lofts and condominiums, from the utilitarian to the very luxurious.Traditional Victorians are not common, but can be spotted on neighboring quieter streets, away from the excitement of the burgeoning newer housing areas.
There are stylish housing choices in nearby South Beach, with homes offering skyline views and modern, sophisticated architecture.
Many choose to live in SOMA for its all-inclusive lifestyle: one can easily live and work here without needing to drive, though it is a transbay hub and getting to the nearby Financial District and Downtown is easy enough. The height of urban living, residing in SOMA often means living next door or between various businesses—from lavish clothing shops to industrial welders to software upstarts to small factory-type operations.
Close to the Giants Ballpark, The Embarcadero, and The Ferry Building with its well-appointed shops and weekend farmers’ markets, and with its focus on progress and innovation, SOMA is the place to be for those who want to live in The City’s most tech-savvy, forward-looking district.
