San Francisco: Dogpatch

Welcome to Dogpatch

A hip neighborhood with grit and a bright future
 
An artistic, laid-back community right along the San Francisco Bay and south of Mission Bay, Dogpatch is known for its artistic vibe and trendy commercial spaces. Currently in redevelopment, this neighborhood undergoing a glorious metamorphosis has great potential to become one of San Francisco’s most beloved areas - and doubly so as residents have access to downtown via the T-Line on Muni and Silicon Valley via the CalTrain.
 
The Dogpatch has various types of condominiums. Some are converted industrial spaces with exposed brick and timber, some are lofts with an open floor plan, and others are modern concrete buildings. You’ll be able to find a space that truly feels like you. It offers a relatively lower price per square foot than other established neighborhoods. A high walkability index for ease of access to several art galleries and the bay, Dogpatch is truly a one-of-a-kind neighborhood.

Local Lifestyle

Dogpatch offers its residents an urban feel with a laid-back vibe, where you’ll find a strong sense of community as you’re able to share your passions with fellow patrons. It’s a great place for young professionals who enjoy an outdoor lifestyle, scoping out great eateries or exploring new art galleries, and as it’s a short walk to a couple of major lines of transit, it makes commuting a breeze.


Dining, Shopping & Entertainment

Keeping in line with Dogpatch’s industrial theme, Serpentine is one of the community's hottest restaurants that dishes up terrific New American fare and craft cocktails in a rustic atmosphere. On your way to work or meeting up with a friend? The Neighbor Bakehouse has specialty coffees and scrumptious pastries for you to enjoy. For fresh, local ingredients brought in daily and a craft cocktail menu that’s to die for, Piccino is a must-try. This bright, modern eatery brings authentic Italian cuisine to the west coast, where the pasta is rolled daily, and the pizza is hand-tossed.
 
If you’re hankering for a treat, look no further than Thatcher's Gourmet Popcorn. A specialty snack shop complete with caramel, parmesan, and tiramisu popcorn, there’s no better place to satisfy your cravings. Stashed is an upscale menswear boutique, where the shoes are stylish and the clothes luxurious. If you’re looking to add a pop of color to your home, Revel creates beautiful boutiques.


Things to Do

Crane Cove Park is a little slice of paradise with a groomed beach and water access. You’ll see locals on their kayaks and SUPs here. It’s a great spot to hang out with friends for the afternoon, full of green space to enjoy and beautiful bayside views. Esprit Park is another fantastic space to check out, where you’ll bring your furry friends to play and have the chance to meet other dog-owners to continue building your community. For fantastic city views and a large playground area, McKinley Square Park has tons of open space and vibrant lawns that are the perfect place to spread out on and soak up the sun.
 
If you crave a taste of local culture, the Museum of Crafts & Design is a unique textile gallery that commemorates contemporary art pieces. For something a little different, the Dogpatch Arts Plaza is a great place to gather with friends and admire all the local talent in the area.
