Yerba Buena

Established in 2008, the Yerba Buena Community Benefit District is the largest CBD in the City of San Francisco, representing over 1,550 properties. The CBD's success during its initial 7 year formation was validated when the district was renewed until 2030. This dynamic neighborhood is an urban cultural center featuring art galleries, museums, recreational and entertainment facilities, activities for children and families, housing, hotels and shopping. Anchoring the neighborhood is Yerba Buena Gardens, a spectacular public open space. The CBD focuses on fostering a safer and more secure community, enhancing environmental quality and beauty, and reinforcing the viability of the economic base.
