Limited housing in San Francisco’s hub of civic, cultural and business activity is always in demand. Culture lovers, and those who simply enjoy being in the center of downtown’s action, scoop up high-rise condos and lofts as soon as they hit the market.

Many of San Francisco’s top performing arts venues are located here, including the War Memorial Opera House, Bill Graham Civic Auditorium and the Orpheum Theatre. You’ll also find the Asian Art Museum and City Hall, a gathering place for marches, rallies and other special events. Every Wednesday and Sunday, you can stock up on fresh produce and other goods at the Heart of the City Farmers’ Market. The shops and restaurants of Hayes Valley are also nearby. And MUNI and BART stops are conveniently located on Market and Van Ness.
