Once filled with warehouses, South Beach has been transformed over the last decade into a primarily residential neighborhood with modern apartments and luxury condos. It’s known for water views and convenience to the Financial District and SOMA neighborhoods as well as being the home of AT&T Park. It also includes the popular sub-neighborhood of Rincon Hill, which was one of San Francisco’s most desirable neighborhoods during the Gold Rush. Recently it’s become home to several of the city’s tallest luxury condo buildings, re-establishing it again as one of San Francisco’s most prestigious neighborhoods, with easy access to the Financial District and breathtaking views. In addition, the main buildings for the local Academy of Art University are found in South Beach.
