RINCON CENTER MERCHANTS
A list of the shops, restaurants and services at Rincon Center. Unfortunately, most of these merchants are gone due to the pandemic or they were booted-out (before Covid) for the misguided demolition of the once-beautiful waterfall atrium.
SF RESIDENTS FIRST

RINCON POINT PHOTOGRAPH AND INFORMATION:
The aerial photograph (top of page) was taken October 5, 1991. Most, but not all, of the Embarcadero Freeway had been knocked down.
At one time Rincon Point was located where Rincon Hill met the bay (left) at what is now the intersection of Spear and Harrison streets (right). Now it is where the Embarcadero passes underneath the Bay Bridge. Rincon Point and Telegraph Hill formed the original inlet that provided 49ers with additional protection for their ships. This inlet, upon which many downtown highrises have been built, reached all the way west to where the Transamerica Pyramid is today. Click on the images to see a larger versions.
