Originating from the former Southern Pacific train yards, Mission Bay is one of the more recent neighborhoods in San Francisco. The buildings available for sale provides the residents captivating view of the bay. It is a level, sunny neighborhood with plenty of parking space. The exotic condominiums in the district encircle the high-tech biotechnological campus of UCSF Medical Center.
The Budding neighborhood is different when compared to San Francisco’s iconic Victorians in the Dogpatch. The district is still being developed and many projects are being carried out including the first library to be constructed in San Francisco in over 40 years plus a Whole Foods Market on 4th Street. The neighborhood is in close proximity to the AT&T Park and several high-tech companies headquartered in South Beach, Yerba Buena and SOMA.
The district is blessed with an impressive combination of cafes and restaurants, including the classic diner – Just for You Café, gourmet pizzeria Piccino on 22nd Street and American restaurant Serpentine on 3rd Street. There are also a couple of restaurants at Waterfront including the Mission Rock Resort and The Ramp – a dockside, down-home restaurant.
Public transportation is very easy here. The neighborhood is connected to downtown through the Muni’s on T-Third Street line. There is also a bike path on Mission Creek which makes it convenient to go out without a car. Caltrain Station is also nearby and provides an easy alternative for those commuting to Silicon Valley. For those that drive, Mission Bay is in close proximity to the freeway entrances of Highway 101 and Interstates 80 and 280.
