South of Market (SoMa)
South of Market (SoMa) used to be a serious industrial district. SoMa sought to be branded as the West Coast equivalent of New York City’s SoHo. It didn’t really work out as SoMa was certainly not the haven of art galleries and its lofts remained a tranquil, remote place of printing presses, welders, motorcycle-repair shops and late-night dance clubs up to the dot.com revolution.
The dot.com made living and working in SoMa cool. The neighborhood is walkable and the available homes for sale are very distinct in design and history thus making it easy for locals to find their way while strolling around the neighborhood. The old printing factories were revamped and transformed into exotic houses. People also found the Victorian cottages located at the peaceful backstreets in the middle of the broad streets.
Yerba Buena gardens and South Park are always congregated with people eating their lunch on the grass in front of mansions that used to restricted and high-class. The ordinary warehouses have also been transformed into offices for tech-companies. The Mid-Market area of SoMa as of recently witnessed an explosion in the construction of buildings, thanks in no small part to the native tech titans like twitter which has its headquarters in SoMa.
