The smokey steel shipyard turned cosy and serene residential district.
Once heavily industrialised, it was vastly inhabited by European immigrants due to the need of steady supply of inexpensive labor, in an area that was geographically cut off from the rest of the city. It has now undergone a significant transformation from an iron working hub to a thriving community of artists, designers and makers, providing ample opportunities to engage with the local creative scene. Despite the tech-focused culture that has taken over the rest of the city, Dogpatch has kept its historic laid-back vibe and strong sense of community. This mix of old and new creates a welcoming atmosphere that lures in residents from all walks of life. It lies peacefully in the lower western edge of San Francisco, beside Potrero Point, in one of the city's most scenic and tucked-away spot. While the area may seem petite and quiet, this former shipyard turned industrial-chic cove is packed not only with rich history, but also with swanky bars, independent shops, and fine restaurants.
The modern city district where to fully enjoy quality of life.
