A Destination Neighborhood
Mission Bay is home to the new UCSF research campus, which has stimulated rapid growth in this emerging affluent neighborhood of high-end condominiums, upscale restaurants and bio-tech research facilities. UCSF will be adding a large world-class, family-centered hospital complex, which will be certified by the US Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design. The Beacon, one of the City’s largest condo complexes, includes a major grocer and bookstore as well as commercial facilities. The first new branch of the San Francisco Public Library in over 40 years opened here in 2006, located in a multi-use facility that comprises a health center, senior housing, retail and a community room.
Dining, Retail & Entertainment Destinations
Old Navy, part of The Gap clothing retailer, is headquartered here. A new bike path along the greenway extends from China Basin to Candlestick Point to the south. Nearby, Potrero Hill adds additional color to the dining and entertainment opportunities. Established in 1998 as a redevelopment area, Mission Bay is truly becoming a destination neighborhood.
