The Marina Neighborhood San Francisco CAHistory

The Marina neighborhood rapidly grew following the World’s Fair in 1915.  Many of the stylish 1920s-inspired apartments and flats still remain in immaculate form. As the host of the San Francisco World’s Fair, the Marina District was gifted with the Palace of Fine Arts. It was designed by a well known San Francisco architect Bernard Maybeck and it has become a neighborhood landmark. 

Real Estate

The neighborhood has a mix of single family homes, multi-family units and apartment buildings that were built in the 1920’s. The “Marina Style” house is ubiquitous in San Francisco and is found throughout the City, though the style first took hold in the Marina District. It was used as the prevailing architectural style for the design of apartment buildings and one- and two-story single-family homes and flats. The most prestigious single family homes are located on Marina Boulevard and sit directly across from the Bay and San Francisco Yacht Club.  It is a great neighborhood for young single people and also a great neighborhood for families.  The neighborhood is very friendly and it always offers fun activities for people of all ages.
