SAN FRANCISCO—Considered one of the most burgeoning areas in San Francisco, Hayes Valley’s rapid ascent as one of the area’s hippest neighborhoods can be attributed to the vast array of high-end boutiques, restaurants and bars that populate the city plaza. Since the neighborhood’s complete makeover in 1989 and after years of embryonic growth, this once-forgotten neighborhood is now grabbing its share of the spotlight, becoming a boomtown in the process. With the combination of new condominium communities added to the mix, Hayes Valley has become a hot address, according to Compass.
