San Francisco's Mid-Market district is currently experiencing quite a renaissance. Thousands of new residential units are currently under construction, and businesses seem to be moving in every month. But those who have visited the area recently know that the neighborhood is far from gentrified. The city is facing an uphill battle when it comes to making the dilapidated stretch of Market Street livable, and The Registry offers statistics prove it. When including the Tenderloin neighborhood, 31 percent of households make less than $15,000 per year, three times the city average. The area also offers three times the number of liquor stores as other neighborhoods. Even with thousands more workers descending upon the area daily and around 1,000 new apartments set to come online by early next year, change will be slow.
