Dogpatch/Central Waterfront

Until a few years ago, most of the Central Waterfront was largely undeveloped or industrial with most of the residential centering around charming Dogpatch. Dogpatch is tucked away and includes residential and some light industrial components, and is a designated historic district. Dogpatch survived the 1906 earthquake and fire fairly unharmed. As a result, it has some of the oldest dwellings in the City, dating back to the 1860s. In the 1990s began the new construction of loft-style condominiums. Irving M. Scott School is the oldest school in the city, built in 1895. Several charming Victorians, designed by Jon Cotter Pelton, Jr., remain on Tennessee and Minnesota Streets. Live/work lofts and a few condo projects, as well as new construction office and research facilities, are rapidly changing the Central Waterfront into an exciting new neighborhood.
