Mission Bay


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.

Mission Bay North is located between Townsend Street and the Mission Creek Channel and extends from 3rd Street to 7th Street. This project area is a 65-acre, mixed-income, transit-oriented residential and retail district adjacent to and within the vicinity of the San Francisco Caltrain commuter rail station and two light rail lines. The development program for Mission Bay North is largely complete.

Mission Bay South extends from Mission Creek Channel to the north to Mariposa Street to the south, and from Interstate 280 to the west to the San Francisco Bay to the east. This project area is a 238-acre, mixed-income, transit-oriented residential, commercial and institutional redevelopment district. It includes a new, neighborhood retail street along 4th Street from Mission Creek Park to the Mission Bay Commons, surrounded by several blocks of mid-rise and low-rise multifamily residential buildings. It also includes the University of California San Francisco Medical Campus and Medical Center, the Chase Center, and several blocks of office, biotech and hotel uses. Mission Bay South has been developed concurrently with the Third Street Light Rail Project, a local transit line constructed along Third Street in Mission Bay South that connects southeastern San Francisco neighborhoods to downtown San Francisco and Chinatown.
