1028 Market Street

San Francisco / Tenderloin District / 1028 Market Street

An Innovative Neighborhood Strategy

1028 Market Street uses a temporary activation strategy to build momentum for a long-term neighborhood revitalization effort.


The Tenderloin’s name is just as unique as its twenty thousand residents. Known as the arts scene mecca, the Tenderloin is San Francisco’s most diverse neighborhood composed of long-time native residents and an eclectic mixture of young professionals, artists, and activists. We purchased 1028 Market Street to create an exciting, lively location for people from every end of San Francisco to come together to enjoy food, recreation, and community.


We transformed the disused property into San Francisco’s first pop-up food hall to encourage foot traffic and establish a presence in the community during the lengthy entitlements process. What better way to bring people to 1028 Market Street than by harnessing the power of food?


Ultimately, we propose a mixed-use residence with 10,000sf of ground floor retail and extraordinary views of Market Street. The project will breathe life into the Tenderloin with a 2,000sf court, an expansive rooftop garden, and a permanent public art piece to provide a fresh, edge to the neighborhood gathering place.

We believe that 1028 Market Street will provide a refreshing new venue for community engagement and culture building in the iconic Market Street corridor.
