The 15 Coolest Things Coming To Us Cities In 2017

San Francisco, California

One of the last underdeveloped neighborhoods in SF finally pops.
To an outsider it would seem impossible for anywhere in the densely populated 7×7 metropolis that is San Francisco to be «yet undeveloped.» But out near AT&T Park the area known as South Beach is opening a slew of new attractions that’ll have visitors like, «Fisherman’s huh?»

Not to be confused with the den of hedonism in Miami, this ‘hood is home to the just-opened San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA) and its hit restaurant In Situ. The neighborhood is getting a chic new hotel with the Hotel VIA, a 159-room boutique offering that’s walkable to the entire neighborhood. This year will also see the long-awaited opening of the Commonwealth Club, the nation’s oldest and largest public forum whose radio broadcast draws nearly a million visitors every week. The building will span 24,000sqft, and plans to host over 450 speeches on all topics throughout the year.

It’s also home to the 21st Amendment Brewery, multiple urban wineries, and 12-time world champion pizza maker Tony Gemignani’s 2nd St Slice House. And when the Warriors maybe, probably move into their new home at the Chase Center in nearby Mission Bay, the entire area will bring a new dimension to San Francisco.
