San Francisco’s Mid-Market neighborhood is Soon to Break Out!

With new housing developments and more than 750 homes on the way, Mid-Market will soon look very different from today, and most likely lure thousands of new residents into the area. For years, Mid-Market has historically maintained a seedy character and reputation for crime. It is next to Tenderloin, and squalid conditions, homelessness, crime, illegal drug trade, prostitution, liquor stores, and strip clubs give the neighborhood a seedy reputation.




But with the arrival of companies such as Twitter, Uber and Square in the past several years, Mid-Market launched into a spotty transformation from gritty to hipster.





Last fall, developer Encore Capital Management had put in the market sales of Stage 1075, a 90-unit condominium building in the heart of Mid-Market. “The building was designed with urban pioneers in mind who really recognize the potential of up-and-coming Mid-Market,” said Michelle Antic, principal with Level Four Advisors, the firm marketing Stage 1075.

Three major apartment projects could start construction soon adding more than 750 new homes. Developers have finalized or are close to finalizing building permits to move forward on building these sleek apartment towers sites:

  • Group I’s 247 condos, a 232-room hotel and 16,050 square feet of retail at 950 Market St
  • Shorenstein Properties’ 304 rentals at 1066 Market St
  • Tidewater Capital and Warhorse LLC’s 186 units at 1028 Market St

  • These soon-to-arrive towers are all close to the intersection of 7th and Market streets nestled between Union Square and Civic Center.

    In addition, Trinity Place at 1145 Market St also has construction underway on another 511 units.

    And existing structures on a triangular lot at the intersection of Market, Turk and Mason streets will also be demolished by Group I. Ou told the Business Times last summer that the neighborhood begs for more housing and retail development. “We look forward to breaking ground in the near future,” said Joy Ou, head of Group I.
