District 8, Northeast District, is what visitors expect to see when they think of San Francisco – Fisherman’s Wharf, Chinatown, Coit Tower, downtown skyscrapers, cable cars, a great shopping experience in Union Square, and world-class restaurants. District 8 is more, however, than a tourist attraction. This dynamic part of the city is full of history and is one of the primary business and financial centers in the country. It is a cultural center with theaters and the San Francisco Opera and Ballet, the Asian Art Museum,and the San Francisco Public Library building, as well as a governmental center, home to the Supreme Court of California, the U.S. Court of Appeals, and City Hall.
Residential real estate in District 8 ranges from unique single-family homes in our Little Italy and North Beach to upscale apartments and condos downtown, and the rich diversity and architectural potential of Tenderloin. Russian Hill is filled with buildings designed by prominent architects and offers elegant homes and outstanding views from the top of the hill. Public transportation is excellent throughout the district, with much of the area being served by cable cars as well as the Muni Metro and BART. The ongoing Central Subway Project will extend the Muni Metro T Third Line to provide a direct transit link between the Bayshore and Mission Bay areas to SOMA, downtown, and Chinatown in the near future, enhancing public transportation even more in this district.
