Project Background

From the 1880s through the 1950s, the area of San Francisco near the intersections of Market Street with Valencia, Haight and Gough streets was a well-known and distinct neighborhood called the “Market Street Hub” or simply, “The Hub.” The name was likely derived from the convergence of streetcar lines carrying people from outlying neighborhoods to downtown San Francisco. The area’s distinctive block pattern - created by the meeting of the Mission, South of Market, and North of Market street grids - lends additional meaning to this historic name.
