One of the outstanding features about living at 140 South Van Ness is its fantastic location between several exciting neighborhoods... Southwestern SOMA, Mid Market and Civic Center.
With Twitter being the anchor tenant, the Mid Market has seen the development of new luxury high rises, food markets and restaurants. Now closed to cars, it offers pedestrians and cyclists the opportunity to travel hassle free alongside the classic streetcars that are a quintessential part of this City's history.
Southwestern SOMA has seen its own growth since the new Federal Building was constructed in 2007. Comprised of warehouses, auto repair shops, small tech companies and lively nightspots, this part of SOMA is redefining itself. From Folsom Street as its main thoroughfare, there are new luxury condos, wine bars and restaurants popping up from 5th street all the way up to 11th Street.
Standing ornate and stately on its own tree-lined plaza, San Francisco City Hall is the centerpiece of the neighborhood called Civic Center. Also referred to as the Van Ness corridor, it is home to several of San Francisco’s beloved cultural institutions housed in architecturally significant buildings, including the symphony, ballet and the San Francisco Jazz Center. For the foodies, there is a wonderful Farmer's Market every Wednesday, and several other days you can find food trucks lining UN Plaza with a variety of ethnic delicacies.All this is just blocks away from 140 South Van Ness. With easy access to all this area has to offer, you would hardly ever need to move your car out of the garage.
