Delivering San Francisco’s Newest Waterfront Neighborhood

Delivering San Francisco’s Newest Waterfront Neighborhood
The challenge

The challenge
How do you transform a parking lot across from a ballpark into a vibrant new mixed-use neighborhood that attracts diverse residents, employers, retailers and community organizations? And how do you do that in an already dense urban environment, in a city known for its sky-high prices?

After working with the Port of San Francisco for nearly 10 years, the San Francisco Giants needed a trusted partner who could take on this challenge and turn ambitious vision into reality. We saw the opportunity, not simply in the scale of the project, but in the commitment to values of environmental sustainability, diversity, equity and inclusion, health and wellness, and economic advancement. In 2017 the Giants selected Tishman Speyer as their 50/50 partner to develop both the horizontal and vertical components of the project, and we went to work on San Francisco’s largest mixed-use waterfront project.

Creating a transformative and inspired neighborhood

Once fully developed, Mission Rock will be a 2.7 million gross square foot mixed-use development. Eleven individual buildings will be constructed in four phases — six office/lab and five residential, along with eight acres of parks. Mission Rock will encompass 1.4 million square feet office/lab, 200,000 square feet of retail and 1,200 apartments, 40% of which are affordable.

The go-to place

We’ll create a dynamic ground floor environment with access to parks and green spaces, prioritizing a sense of place above all else. We’ll empower local merchants and chefs through our retail offerings, embracing inclusivity with the community through public spaces and park programming. We see this project as an opportunity to create a unique and authentic place that attracts the right level of energy and excitement.

We knew a top-down, monolithic solution wouldn’t feel authentic. So, we are working with four different architects to create a diverse and dynamic environment that will feel like a real, organic neighborhood. Three of the four architectural teams are led by women, including Studio Gang, Work AC and MVRDV. And our landscape firm, Scape, designing China Basin Park, is also female-run.

Focus on the future

As part of our commitment to building a neighborhood of the future, we are raising the site 5 feet to meet the 2100 projection for sea level rise. We’ve also designed a district scale energy plant that will provide heating and cooling for all the buildings in the project, and a water treatment plant that will recycle wastewater generated onsite to feed 100% of the projects non-potable water needs.

As our buildings rise quickly into the waterfront skyline, we continue to work with a wide range of partners to ensure we meet or exceed our ESG goals and community commitments. We feel certain that is key to creating the transformative place, where thousands of people will live, work and enjoy themselves and where innovations of the future will take shape.
