Weekend Events and the Weekly Real Estate Update

Eat Drink SF is now in its 10th year, and organizers say this is San Francisco’s premiere food and drink festival. It includes three days of curated programming today, tomorrow, and Sunday at Fort Mason, with 35 restaurants and more than 70 beer, wine, and spirits makers participating in the festival. On Saturday and Sunday the Vintage Paper Fair happens in Golden Gate Park — the last of three such fairs that will have taken place in 2018. And finally, on Saturday night, Lady Bird will be presented on a giant outdoor screen in Washington Square Park in North Beach. The movie begins at dusk, and it’s free, but donations are accepted.


On the “Homes for Sale in San Francisco” front, here’s our report for this week, 8/19/18 – 8/25/18

Downtown San Francisco Continues to Grow

Of the record 67,800 residential units in the current pipeline of development across San Francisco, roughly 10,000 of the units, or 15 percent, fall within the boundaries of the City’s Greater Downtown, which now includes most of the burgeoning Transbay District but only a sliver of Central SoMa.

At the same time, according to SocketSite.com, citing the latest Monitoring Report for Downtown San Francisco, the number of people working within the boundaries of the City’s old-school Downtown increased 3 percent in 2017 to 288,000, which is up 23 percent since the end of 2011 (233,500) and now represents 40 percent of the total 711,000 jobs in San Francisco.
