Bayview/Hunters Point

From Candlestick Park to the Hunters Point Naval Ship Yards, in the South East corner of San Francisco is the Bayview/Hunters Point neighborhoods that consist of Bayview, Crocker Amazon, Excelsior, Outer Mission, Visitacion Valley, Portola, Silver Terrace, Mission Terrace, Hunters Point, Bayview Heights, Candlestick Point and Little Hollywood.

Here you will find many homes in original condition, lived in by the same families for generations. Enjoy 2 large Parks, Bayview Park and the Candlestick Point Recreation area. Several historical sites, like The Bayview Opera House have been nominated to the National Registry. Of late – it has become a destination for the homeowner seeking to upgrade and take residence or repair and re-sell, due to the lower home pricing in comparison to other San Francisco districts.

Once home to dairy farms, slaughterhouses, ship building, Naval testing and power plants, the area has been under long term remediation projects to clear any lasting hazardous affects.This ethnically diverse area has recently seen an upgrade in the rebuilding of the Third Street corridor, home the the MUNI T Third Street Light Rail. A mix of residential, commercial and industrial, there are currently several district re-development projects, most notably the Hunters Point Shipyard redevelopment project by Lennar Corporation at Candlestick Point and the San Francisco Naval Shipyard. Proposed are 10,500 residential units, a new stadium, commercial and retail space, an artists’ village and a waterfront park and recreational area, contributing up to 12,000 permanent jobs.

Housing prices rose 342% between 1996 and 2008, and continue to rise, though not at so great a rate. These neighborhoods have been noted as a significant example of marginilization mostly due to industry closures, leaving residents without employment. Many city programs and local activism groups work to strengthen and improve the activities and services to serve the residents in these diverse neighborhoods.
