San Francisco’s Mid-Market DevelopmentNov 08 2017 · 0 comments · Mixed-Use, NISHKIAN MENNINGER, Residential ·0
San Francisco’s Mid-Market neighborhood has seen much development and revitalization over the past few years. Along Market Street, between 5th Street and Van Ness Avenue, apartment buildings, cultural centers, and office spaces are popping up left and right.
Opened in 2013, NEMA, a 35-story apartment building design by Seattle’s Magnusson Klemencic Associates, was the first luxury residential building in the neighborhood. Since then, many other residential buildings, such as the development at Trinity Place, have been constructed or planned. Proper Hotel opened this year and adds to the upscale palate of the neighborhood. A historic flat-iron building, built in 1907, was renovated and retrofitted for this boutique hotel. Proper Hotel’s amenities include ground-level restaurants and a new roof-top cocktail bar.
Nishkian Menninger has had a hand in the development of this up-and-coming neighborhood. 1075 Market and 1066 Market, both mid-rise, concrete residential buildings, will sit across the street from one another. 1075 Market construction is nearing completion and construction of 1066 Market is scheduled to begin this winter.

In addition to new living spaces, the neighborhood has seen a surge in theater and other cultural entertainment spaces. This year, the popular musical Hamilton played at the Orpheum Theater. The sold-out show generated many visitors to the mid-market neighborhood. Out-of-town visitors and city dwellers alike flocked to the theater, creating foot traffic and increasing business in the neighborhood. The Golden Gate Theater and the Strand Theater add to the district’s artistic appeal. The Strand Theater, after years of being closed, was redesigned by SOM and renovated into the home for the American Conservatory Theater.
The tech industry has also contributed to the influx of traffic to the Mid-Market neighborhood. Twitter, Dolby, Spotify, Square, Uber, along with many start-ups, operate out of office space along Market.
