Nob Hill and Russian Hill
Russian Hill and Nob Hill: Trendy, Chic and In the Heart of San Francisco
World-famous San Francisco landmarks and attractions – like Fisherman’s Wharf, cable cars, China Town and the world’s windiest street – are all located in the northeastern District 8.
But although the district attracts thrones of tourists, the neighborhoods are vibrant and full of energy and the residential options are varied for buyers.
Comprised of Nob Hill and Russian Hill, North Beach and many of the neighborhoods in San Francisco’s downtown, District 8 is the city’s cultural, commercial and governmental center.
The city’s urban core – which includes, Downtown, Van Ness, Civic Center, Financial District and the Tenderloin – is home to many corporate headquarters. For instance, Twitter and Craigslist are here, as are financial services giants Wells Fargo and Charles Schwab.
Plus, the district is home to long-time San Francisco cultural institutions, including theater, ballet and music venues. And each neighborhood boasts its own extensive list of eateries, like the venerable Italian joints in North Beach and Chinatown’s dim sum cafes.
For people interested in buying homes in the district, there is a full spectrum available. Chic new construction condos continually to pop up downtown; North Beach has newer condos and 1920s and 1930s architecture, and Nob Hill and Russian Hill offer new construction condos, as well as homes in iconic buildings.
