Visitacion Valley is a southeastern San Francisco neighborhood that is often overlooked for its out-of-the-way location. It has a fairly young population and is one of the most affordable neighborhoods in the city. The residential landscape is made up primarily of single-family, above-garage type homes, and large, multi-unit buildings are also available. Leland Avenue serves as the community’s major commercial strip and features restaurants, convenience stores, and herbal shops, reflecting the neighborhood’s ethnically diverse population.
In recent years, the neighborhood has initiated several redevelopment plans with a focus on restoring and improving the area. This includes extending public transportation into the Visitacion Valley in order to create easier access to the rest of the city. This spirit of revitalization will lead to continued growth and residential opportunities in the future.
