Curbed SF choses Bayview as neighborhood of the year

Lennar San Francisco

San Francisco, Calif. – January 2017 – Curbed SF has chosen Bayview, home of Lennar’s The San Francisco Shipyard, as their Curbed Cup 2016 winner of Neighborhood of the Year for the second year in a row! Voters from 16 neighborhoods cast their choice for the best neighborhood in San Francisco, with Inner Richmond coming in second. Among the reasons for Bayview’s win, Curbed sites a vibrant community with below $1 million home prices — a rarity for San Francisco.

“Bayview’s victory exemplifies of a trend occurring over the last couple years—specifically, communities getting together to get the vote out. While areas like the Castro, Nob Hill, and Hayes Valley were able to win their battles via prestige and brand recognition, they proved no match when it came to the power of neighborhood pride—something sorely lacking in other SF neighborhoods these days.

People live in Bayview; it’s not just a ramen/craft cocktail pitstop in between landing a sweet tech gig and heading to the suburbs after cranking out a few kids. Bayview has lifelong residents, something all too rare these days in the city.

Bayview was one of only two neighborhoods in 2016 where the average San Franciscan could buy a home—i.e., asking prices rarely broke the $1 million mark.

One reader sums up the neighborhood of the year best, saying it’s ‘one of the last few affordable neighborhoods (by SF’s standards), with lots of new businesses opening up alongside historic ones on walkable/transit-accessible 3rd Street and in cool converted industrial spaces.’”
