Mission Bay Block 7

This affordable mixed-use building will fill the western portion of Block 7—on Fourth Street between China Basin and Mission Bay Boulevard North—within Mission Bay South Redevelopment Area.

The development brings 200 residences and 10,000 sf of neighborhood-serving retail to the developing area. The retail arcade wraps around the corner at Mission Bay Boulevard North, creating a lively interaction with the adjacent UCSF campus.

The building wraps around a large communal open space for gathering and relaxing. At the west side, a second-level podium courtyard tops the embedded garage; at the east a ground-level courtyard features a community pavilion with space and amenities for residents to gather, cook, or do laundry. The courtyard, while secure and protected, is visually open, providing glimpses of green to to passersby through the entryway.

This high-density design is located along the Fourth Street bicycle route and adjacent to the Third Street Light Rail. It features 200 secure residential bicycle parking spaces as well as visitor bicycle parking. The development design will incorporate a series of complementary sustainable strategies—such as energy efficiency, domestic solar hot-water panels, and drought-tolerant landscaping—to achieve a high GreenPoint Rating.
