A little over two decades ago, the area south of Market Street in San Francisco was a no-man’s land of warehouses, abandoned buildings — and, from a visionary’s perspective — plenty of untapped opportunities.
Today, SOMA has been completely re-imagined and bears little resemblance to its former self. Here, sleek luxury condominiums to rival those in Manhattan stand cheek to cheek with towering high rises, while in their shadow stands a stadium, world-class museums and convention centers, trendy bars and restaurants, and the thriving, innovative tech community that started it all.

The epicenter of urban living in San Francisco, SOMA offers easy access to the Financial District and every county in the Bay Area via CalTrain, Muni, Golden Gate Transit, and BART.

While it may be known primarily for its warehouses, nightclubs, and art spaces, SOMA also offers some of the best hotels, restaurants, and cultural attractions that the City has to offer.
SOMA offers a rich and complex mix of people, experiences, and possibilities. What draws neighbors here?
After all, there are many changes taking place in SOMA right now (new stores, buildings and restaurants are going up every day), and the excitement is palpable.
