The Rise of South of Market

Formerly a doggedly industrial area full of warehouses and factories, this flat stretch attracted few residents. For nearly 100 years, it was considered unattractive, if not downright dangerous. All that began to change in the 1970s, when slums were cleared away and the Moscone Center was built. Upscale interior designer showrooms soon followed, ensuing decades brought premier nightclubs, and, more recently, the digital boom added more than virtual life to the place. Public structures have sprung up lately, and the whole district is now seen as a desirable neighborhood – at least for creative types.
