Light industry once ruled this quiet backwater district; printing presses, welders, motorcycle repair, with a few dance spots thrown in for good measure. San Francisco had its dot-com explosion in the 90's and suddenly it was hip to live and work in SOMA. 3rd street saw the introduction of a major SF MOMA location, followed by Yerba Buena, and the Jewish Museum. Things very quickly shifted as multimillionaire tech companies began populating the office spaces and lunchtime eateries, shifting the neighborhood's economic fortunes forever.

Once unremarkable warehouses were transformed into offices that boasted the latest internet connectivity. Old printing factories now became the city's hottest luxury lofts. This period also saw the rebirth of the Ferry Building at the end of Market Street. This classic historic structure morphed quickly into an exceptional food emporium and farmers market location without rival. SOMA remains today an urban district where dreams are made, in a comfortable setting unlike any other and all within biking or walking distance.

Excellent Access to Transit. Currently under construction, the Central
Subway line travels along 4th Street with an above-ground station at 4th and Brannan Streets — just blocks away from the Property. The King Street Caltrain Station is a short walk from the Property. Access to Interstate 80 is two blocks to the east of the Property.
