A glimpse into life at The Harrison is a glimpse into life well-lived; our residents know the bliss of waking up to unparalleled views, the enjoyment of living amidst a cityscape brimming with outdoor havens and the luxury of residing in unrivaled proximity to the Greater Bay Area’s iconic, leading attractions, not to mention award-winning nearby restaurants with just the refreshments they need to cheers to it all. To our residents, these are simply non-negotiables for living well in San Francisco.

Awe-Inspiring Views

It’s no secret that The Harrison boasts dramatic vistas of the Bay Bridge, Twin Peaks, city, marina and beyond — here, we believe iconic views should be the rule, never the exception. Living well in San Francisco means starting and ending your day with a fresh, elevated perspective. At The Harrison, countless homes are brimming with outlooks which serve as reminders that you live in one of the best cities in the world—including, of course, Uncle Harry’s, our resident penthouse lounge with the ultimate vantage point of the Bay Bridge just below.

Nearby Escapes to Nature

San Franciscans shouldn’t have to look far before finding an idyllic, quiet space to unwind, slow down and soak up the sun amidst natural scenery. For an afternoon spent on the waterfront surrounded by greenery, head to The Harrison’s neighboring Rincon Park — widely recognized for its iconic bow-and-arrow sculpture known as Cupid’s Span. One of the city’s first parks, established in 1847, Washington Square in North Beach offers a sprawling lawn and a host of seasonal events and festivals. For a quintessential go-to weekend hangout, lay out a picnic blanket on Dolores Park’s grassy field to relax the day away. Of course, our local Yerba Buena Gardens is another resident favorite, where you’ll find a quiet park, colorful gardens, waterfalls and hosted attractions.

Delectable Neighborhood Dining

We all know San Francisco offers a diverse cultural scene brimming with restaurants that will satisfy any craving and occasion. And, whether wandering the Ferry Building’s renowned marketplace for organic produce, enjoying a gourmet bite at a local cafe or indulging in fine dining, SoMa is no exception to the city’s celebrated array of incredible eats. A definite part of the recipe when it comes to living well at The Harrison, some of our neighborhood favorites are the Saison, a Michelin starred restaurant that offers an ever-evolving menu based on what’s in season that day; Marlow, a New American bistro with an Instagram-worthy aesthetic and mouthwatering burger; and Yank Sing, the place to get contemporary or traditional Dim Sum.

Unrivaled Proximity to the Area’s Most Iconic Attractions

Beyond the myriad sights to see within San Francisco, The Harrison is just a short drive to some of California’s leading destinations beyond. Less than an hour and a half away awaits one of the most coveted attractions worldwide — Napa Valley. Wine aficionado or not, a trip to wine country makes for an ideal weekend getaway. Or, take your travels in the other direction and head to Santa Cruz’s iconic surf town, about an hour and a half from our doorstep, or to Half Moon Bay, which is under an hour drive from The Harrison. Yosemite, Lake Tahoe and Big Sur are all within three to four hour road-trip-distance, and make for some of the best weekend getaways amidst the state’s most stunning natural landscapes.
