First inhabited by the families of maritime and industrial workers, Dogpatch survived the 1906 earthquake far more intact than almost any other neighborhood. In 2002, this part of town was officially designated as a historic district of the city of San Francisco. Each of the older homes in Central Waterfront is a particular piece of history. A great many former factories and warehouses have been transformed into live/work lofts, exciting restaurants, or technology incubators. The proximity of this neighborhood to all types of transportation including the 3rd street Muni Light Rail, Caltrain, and Highways 101 and 280 make it uniquely situated for business and residential use. Across 16th Street is Mission Bay, which is the new headquarters for the UCSF Research campus, Benioff Children's Hospital, the DropBox campus, Uber campus, and a new arena for the Golden State Warriors. Food lovers who call Dogpatch home are treated to a wide array of innovative local options including Piccino, Serpentine, Neighbor Bakehouse, Longbridge Pizza, Gilberth's, Wooly Pig, Marcella's Lasagneria, Ungrafted, and Mission Rock Resort. And you can just imagine the interesting spaces some of these eateries inhabit. Serpentine is located in a former tin can factory’s boiler room. A nearby Whole Foods Market helps supplement ingredients for all the diehard home cookers, who are already spoiled by second-to-none specialty shops like Olivier's Butchery, DIG Wines, and La Fromagerie that are just steps from their door. Dogpatch is also surrounded by some enormously appealing neighborhoods including Mission Bay and Potrero Hill's 18th Street and 20th Street corridors, which features even more trendy bars, cafes, and restaurants. Locals love gathering at Esprit Park for a relaxing break while their dogs romp and socialize. And you're always just a skip and a jump from downtown, where folks can enjoy the farmers’ market at the Ferry Plaza and a nice waterfront stroll. Both Dogpatch and Central Waterfront offer a plethora of residential real estate options. 1860 Victorian cottages live side by side with exquisite high-rises featuring penthouse views, private patios, and garages. Historic buildings offer expansive windows in live/work environments full of exposed brick, period details, and loads of character.
