The Fillmore Jazz Preservation District
The Fillmore Jazz Preservation District was created to preserve and promote the jazz history and culture of the area. In the early 1900s, this neighborhood was segregated. The area was an appealing option for immigrants looking for cheap real estate and a welcoming atmosphere. During this time, the neighborhood became home to Filipino, Mexican, Japanese, and African Americans. This made it the most diverse neighborhood west of the Mississippi. Today, it is a vibrant, colorful place to visit.
The fillmore neighborhood was once a multi-ethnic working class district. By the 1950s, the Fillmore was home to more than two dozen jazz clubs. But an urban renewal plan changed all that. Now, the area is a thriving cultural center, with historic sites and venues, including Yoshi’s Café, Jazz Heritage Center, and more. It is also home to several historic clubs, including legendary club Yoshi’s Café.
In the United States, for the first time in 50 years, a new district appeared
In October 2001, the Redevelopment Agency of the City and County of San Francisco (RDA) put out a Request for Proposals for Parcel 732-A, a parcel located at the northeast corner of Fillmore and Eddy Streets. Designed as a catalyst for revitalizing the neighborhood, this project would also include the Western Addition A-2 Redevelopment Project Area. The district would include the old Eddy Street and the old South Fillmore Street, which have been vacant since the 1960s.
In the early 1960s, the Fillmore was a center of the counterculture movement, drawing thousands of mostly white newcomers to the city. These newcomers tended to be anti-racist and supported Rhythm and Blues artists. Despite the cultural importance of the area, the African-American population of the Fillmore has decreased steadily since the 1970s. High housing prices and the decline of well-paying blue collar jobs have forced many to leave.
Originally a blighted neighborhood, the Fillmore was home to many people. In the late 1960s, the district was a center of the counterculture movement, and the city’s gentrified residents eventually began to feel like they were part of a family. In the 1960s, the neighborhood was redeveloped into the historic Fillmore Jazz Preservation District. A new redevelopment of the neighborhood’s economy has helped the neighborhood become more attractive and inclusive.
Despite its recent emergence as a hipster destination, the neighborhood has not experienced steady growth. The population of African-Americans is decreasing at a steady rate. In recent years, the high housing costs and decline in well-paying blue collar jobs have led to the displacement of African-Americans. This has resulted in a growing racial diversity in the neighborhood. However, the district’s success is still dependent on the city’s ability to attract new businesses and residents.
