Midtown Terrace Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
San Francisco is a unique city in the world, consisting of neighborhoods that hug the hills, nestle in the valleys, ride along the bay, or march in stately progression to the Pacific Ocean. Whether a person prefers the exciting new South Of Market Area, the quiet neighborliness of the Sunset, or the panoramic views of Midtown Terrace, San Francisco offers a variety of atmospheres and even micro climates.
Midtown Terrace is located south of Sutro Tower and East of Twin Peaks. Laguna Honda Hospital is to the west and Portola Drive is to the south. This neighborhood of mid-century homes lies on the slopes of Twin Peaks and was one of the first planned communities in San Francisco. The plans ensured that the homes were detached and backyard green belts separated the homes. Midtown Terrace is in the 94114 and 94131 zip codes, and the streets wind around the bases of hills, giving street names that end with the word “view” or “vista.”
To the east, Portola Drive becomes Market Street, giving the most centrally located neighborhood in San Francisco easy access to downtown and the financial district. The Mount Sutro Open Space Preserve and the University of California Medical Center are directly to the north. To the west, Portola Drive goes to the Pacific Coast, making Midtown Terrace a desirable location for professionals who work in any of the employment centers of the city.
Mollie Stones Tower Market and Miraloma Market are south of the neighborhood on Portola Drive. Twin Peaks Park, Mount Sutro Park, and Midtown Terrace Playground offer plenty of open space.
Clarendon Alternative Elementary School, The Ruth Asawa School of the Arts, and McAteer High School are located nearby on Portola Drive.
