The Marina is an ultra-chic neighborhood in San Francisco's District 7. Surrounded by the waters of the San Francisco Bay and the prestigious neighborhoods of Cow Hollow, Russian Hill, and the Presidio, real estate in the Marina is expensive – and very popular with trendsetting singles and successful young families.
Situated on what was once marshland, sand dunes, and rubble, the Marina was first developed as the site for the 1915 Panama-Pacific International Exposition. After the exposition, most buildings were demolished leaving only the iconic Palace of Fine Arts. It wasn’t long before homes were built on this prime waterfront property, and the Marina became one of San Francisco’s sought-after residential neighborhoods.
With spectacular views of the Bay and the Golden Gate Bridge, gorgeous homes, and great restaurants, the Marina has it all. Residents can enjoy the Marina Green for jogging, roller-blading, flying kites, or just soaking in the sun. Trendy bars attract the weekend crowds, and the shopping along Chestnut and Union streets is said to be some of the best in the city.
