SOMA Pilipinas is A celebration of where we come from,
and where WE ARE going.
Our Cultural Heritage District is a product of its people, who are resilient, creative, and determined.
We live, work, play and gather here as a community.
SOMA Pilipinas is a movement that is anchored in the neighborhood, our history and our people.
It is a place that connects the broader community to our narrative and stories as Filipinos in America. It is a living culture — a community that's conscious of history, yet embraces progress,
working together to move forward in unity and vision.
Through extensive community input, we have developed a series of plans
to build-out our Cultural Heritage District in the coming years.
A new center to nurture our growing creative community.
An innovative program to prepare retail businesses for long-term opportunities in the cultural district.
Curating the best of Filipino-American culture to bring economic activity and public awareness to the cultural district.
An opportunity to create a new group of Filipino themed public space with restaurants, cafes, and outdoor performances.
Our vision for a multi-service, multi-lingual center for our community to find jobs, housing, legal, and medical services.
Accelerating the development of new restaurant concepts across the cultural district.
