Welcome to Rincon Hill
Rincon Hill is a neighborhood in San Francisco, California. Also known as the Great Hill of San Francisco, it is one of its original Seven Hills. This is a densely populated neighborhood bordered on the north by Folsom Street, on the east by the Embarcadero, on the south by Bryant Street, and on the west by Essex Street. The Rincon Hill neighborhood is named after Rincon Point, which once extended into the bay. It is located in the South of Market district, which comprises several other neighborhoods such as Yerba Buena Island, Mission Bay, and South Beach. The hill is approximately 100 feet (30 meters) in height.
The revised Rincon Hill Plan lifted the limitations of several high-rise buildings in the area, one of which is located on the pinnacle of Rincon Hill itself, to 400 and 550 feet (170 m). Only The Infinity and one tower of 709-unit One Rincon Hill were constructed before the 2008 financial crisis, which stalled all construction projects throughout the city. One Rincon Hill's second tower, the 320-unit 45 Lansing Street, and the 655-unit LUMINA all began construction in 2012 when the US economy improved. In 2013, the LUMINA began building on 399 Fremont Street, with 447 units.
