Frank Manchen, a member of the Board of Directors of the Tenderloin Community Benefit District in San Francisco, talks about the infusion of new businesses, nightclubs, and attractive rents that are attracting millennials with an adventurous spirit. 

As a representative of the Hilton San Francisco Union Square, located on the fringe of The Tenderloin, Manchen has a close working relationship with the neighborhood that has a long history as one of the City’s sketchiest neighborhoods.

As the economic allures of the Tenderloin begin to transform the Tenderloin, the mission of the Tenderloin Community Benefit District is to steward smart progress while guarding against gentrification.
