San Francisco’s new Mission Bay development covers 303 acres of land between the San Francisco Bay and Interstate-280. The Board of Supervisors established the Mission Bay North and South Redevelopment Project Areas in November 1998. Development is controlled through the Redevelopment Plans and Designs for Development, Owner Participation Agreements between the Redevelopment Agency and original master developer, Catellus Development Corporation (now held by FOCIL-MB LLC), and Interagency Cooperation Agreements, which commit all City departments to the Mission Bay Infrastructure Plans. Mission Bay is a mixed-use, transit-oriented development.
The maximum development program for Mission Bay includes:
• 6,404 housing units, with 1,806 (~30%) affordable to moderate, low, and very low-income households. OCII sponsored non-profit developers will build up to 1,515 of the affordable units on 14.9 acres of land contributed by the master developer in Mission Bay North and South. The remaining 291 affordable units will be included in privately developed projects,
• 4.4 million sq. ft. of commercial space for office/lab uses and an 18,000 seat event center.
• A new UCSF research campus containing 2.65 million sq. ft. of building space on 43 acres of land donated by the master developer and the City.
• A state-of-the art 550-bed UCSF medical center serving women, children, and cancer patients.
• 419,000 sq. ft. of city and neighborhood-serving retail space.
• A 250-room hotel.
• 41 acres of new public open space, including parks along Mission Creek and along the bay, plus 8 acres of open space within the UCSF campus.
• A new 500-student public school, new public library and new public safety building housing fire and police stations and other community facilities.
The master developer will construct more than $700 million in public infrastructure in Mission Bay, to be financed through special assessments and increased property taxes generated by the development. Upon completion, the right-of-way and utility improvements will be accepted for operation and maintenance by the City. The Office of Community Investment and Infrastructure (OCII) will operate the park system, funded by annual assessments against private property in the project area.
Mission Bay is served by transit by Muni’s new 3rd Street Light Rail system, bus lines and the regional-serving Caltrain.
Mission Bay is expected to create more than 30,000 new permanent jobs, in addition to hundreds of ongoing construction jobs. Development began in 2000 and will take place over 20 to 30 years. Total development cost for Mission Bay is expected to exceed $4 billion.
As of January 2017, 5,096 housing units, including 848 affordable units, have been constructed in Mission Bay. An additional 812 units are under construction or entitled. More than 1.9 million square feet of commercial, office, clinical and biotechnology lab space has been built, another 1 million square feet is under construction, and 1.5 million square feet is planned or proposed. About 60% of the UCSF campus has been developed, including seven research buildings, a campus community center, and a university housing development. The first phase of the UCSF medical center was completed in 2015, and the second phase is expected to begin construction in early 2017. More than 19 acres of new non-UCSF parks and open space have also been completed, including a kids' park.
