  • What’s New in Neighboring Dogpatch

    Over the past few years, our neighbor, Dogpatch, has been on the up-and-up as it has become a hub for local artists, designers, restaurateurs and artisans of all kinds. From small retailers and restaurants to wineries and art studios, it’s definitely worth exploring what’s new.

    According to The New York Times, “In the last five years or so, Dogpatch has lost many of its rough edges and become a hub for creative industries, from brewing to branding. David Fletcher, a landscape architect, helped create several new green spaces in the neighborhood, including its first playground, and works in the American Industrial Center, a former cannery that stretches along Third Street, from 20th to 23rd Streets. He described the complex as “an aircraft carrier of creativity.” Fellow tenants include a chocolate maker, a roboticist, a bookbinder, a sex-toy inventor, a messenger-bag manufacturer and an organizer of cooking parties.”

    We’ve rounded up a few of the latest projects in Dogpatch that caught our attention:

    Minnesota Street Project

    Inhabiting three warehouses in Dogpatch, the 100,000+ square-foot building offers affordable and economically sustainable spaces for art galleries, artists and related nonprofits. Currently, there’s nearly 20 new exhibitions on display for the public to explore with some of the most popular being The Golden Decade by Andersen North, Leiko Ikemura: Unknown Voices by the Bransten Gallery and The Speak of Trees by Alter space.

    Dogpatch Dance & Yoga

    If you’re in the mood for a new kind of workout, Dogpatch Dance & Yoga is the newest studio in the neighborhood and offers a mix of classes from hip hop dancing and twerking to urban burlesque, yoga and belly dancing. Classes are available seven days a week and a variety of different times to fit with every schedule.


    Named among Thrillst’s “SF’s Best New Restaurants & Bars” in October 2016, ‘aina is a modern Hawaiian eatery new to the Dogpatch neighborhood. Best known for weekend brunch and also open for Hawaii-inspired lunch and dinner, some of ‘aina’s most popular dishes include the guava-filled malasadas, Spam musubi and loco moco.

  • Bayview Named 2016 “Neighborhood of the Year”

    What an honor! Bayview has officially been crowned the San Francisco “Neighborhood of the Year” by Curbed San Francisco and awarded the 2016 Curbed Cup title for the second year in a row.

    In order to be deemed the champion, Bay Area neighborhoods were nominated by locals and the 16 districts with the most votes went head-to-head to compete for the title. There were two matchups per day and readers had 24-hours to vote.

    Starting as the 5th seed this year, Bayview first eliminated Excelsior and went on to conquer Noe Valley and Nob Hill. The final matchup was between Inner Richmond and Bayview where Bayview reigned supreme by 90 votes.

    According to Curbed SF, “Bayview’s victory exemplifies of a trend occurring over the last couple years—specifically, communities getting together to get the vote out. While areas like the CastroNob Hill, and Hayes Valley were able to win their battles via prestige and brand recognition, they proved no match when it came to the power of neighborhood pride—something sorely lacking in other SF neighborhoods these days.”

    We all know, the best guide to a city is a person who lives there. Take a read about what Barbara Ockel, executive director of the Bayview Opera House, loves about Bayview. Plus, she shares some hidden gems!

  • David Adjaye to Receive Knighthood from the Queen of England

    Our own masterplan architect here at The San Francisco Shipyard, David Adjaye, will be knighted in recognition for his services to architecture by Queen Elizabeth II. He will become Sir David Adjaye.

    The British-Ghanaian architect has had one phenomenal year as many of his historic projects have been making headlines worldwide. From completing the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of African American History & Culture on the National Mall in Washington D.C in September, to winning the competition to design the first contemporary art museum in Latvia and of course, announcing his involvement here at The San Francisco Shipyard – the knighthood comes at a momentous time for Adjaye.

    According to Architectural Digest, “In a statement released last week by the Central Chancery of the Orders of Knighthood at St. James’ Palace, the group that oversees the award, Adjaye was lauded as ‘one of the leading architects of his generation and a global cultural ambassador for the U.K.’ The Chancery also noted the architect’s global reach, highlighting Adjaye’s groundbreaking works in London, Norway, the U.S., and beyond.”

    “I am truly honored and humbled to receive a knighthood by Her Majesty the Queen for my contribution to architecture,” said Adjaye. “I see this not as a personal celebration, but as a celebration of the vast potential – and responsibility – for architecture to effect positive social change. That we as architects have to bring something positive to the world. I am proud to continue to work in service of this mission as a global cultural ambassador for the U.K.”

    David Adjaye has also received two royal awards including the 2016 Queen’s Birthday Honors in October 2016 and an Order of the British Empire (OBE) in 2007. The official Investiture ceremony will take place in 2017.
