Hayes Valley has undergone an amazing transformation in the years since the Loma Prieta earthquake of 1989 damaged the freeway off-ramps that once dominated the neighborhood like a concrete octopus. Where off-ramps once divided the neighborhood, newly built Hayes Valley condos for sale now bring the neighborhood together. If you are thinking of looking at Hayes Valley condos for sale, you have a wide variety of options from condos in smaller buildings to luxury condo homes that have been recently constructed.
The pedestrian heart of eastern Hayes Valley is currently Patricia’s Green, which is surrounded by pop-up boutiques – as well as some excellent restaurants and shops in slightly more permanent digs. Gough and Franklin, two of San Francisco’s major north/south streets, as well as Oak and Fell, two of San Francisco’s major east/west streets intersect in Hayes Valley. Neighborhood streets are bustling and busy – be a smart pedestrian and stay alert! On the west side of Hayes Valley we find homes that are near Duboce Park, and in between lies what most San Franciscan’s think of as the Lower Haight.
Proximity to transit, great weather, and a very walkable neighborhood in a central San Francisco location are just a few of the amenities that make Hayes Valley a desirable San Francisco neighborhood.
