I'll just add to the 'Don't whine about not being able to afford to live in an expensive place if you can't afford to' crowd. They ain't making any more land in San Francisco, and even if they allowed rampant building the streets and other infrasturcure are already at capacity. To say nothing of earthquakes. Sheesh, it's one of the most expensive areas in the world because, just like the others, it's a limited commodity.

San Francisco and Hawaii are off limits to all but the wealthy because land availability is limited and the real estate market is pretty much a sellers' market. You won't even get a view unless you have several million dollars. If I may say so myself, I bought a place with that kind of view in Colorado for a fraction of that price before every one else got a chance to discover it.

That's why you build upwards.
A 100-story condo building will house far more people that a 1-story condo building...
...and they'll all get a decent square footage.
