3. 6×6 (aka Market Street Place 945 Market St.) – Largest new retail development in the Mid-Market neighborhood since the nearby Westfield San Francisco Centre opened in 1998. But its immediate environs are facing variable demand. Zendesk, Spotify, and other tech companies are headquartered nearby, and new businesses like Popsons Burgers and Equator Coffee have sprung up to serve them. And some major housing developments have recently been approved for the area, including 1028 Market and the Group i development. Two large-scale hotels—the Yotel and San Francisco Proper—are also in development nearby, and are expected to open later this year. But other major projects, such as the recently refurbished Hibernia Bank at Jones and Market, remain empty. Meanwhile, several well-known neighborhood establishments, like Show Dogs and Machine Coffee, have called it quits. Even the Westfield mall has lost some major tenants, including the Bristol Farms grocery store. The underground
parking garage developed to serve the new “6×6” mall at 900 Market Street is now open for business—even though not a single tenant has been confirmed to fill the 250,000 square feet of retail space above it.

20. 1699 Market – 9 stories rental about Flax Art building.
Location: The Hub
Projects & Developments:
The Mid-Market area has been a rather rough section of San Francisco for decades, with urban renewal plan after urban renewal plan failing to take hold. But all that appears to be on the cusp of change as the city attempts to increase density along transit corridors. The Hub triumphantly returns!
Currently, The Hub is full of proposed developments with thousands of new housing units coming from big developments. At least eight development sites are in some stage of the entitlement process. Future new buildings in the neighborhood will occupy these sites:

7. 33 Gough Street – Currently City College Administration Building. CCSF board of trustees cut a deal with an Atlanta-based developer to replace the current, aging building at 33 Gough Street
