Waterfront Urban Village

One of the newest neighborhoods in San Francisco, Mission Bay rises from the former train yards once owned by Southern Pacific. Here, surrounding the UC Medical Center, you’ll find exclusive condominiums gracing the shores of the city, with jaw-dropping views across the bay of the picturesque Berkeley/Oakland Hills. The weather is a huge draw as it’s one of the sunnier parts of the city, residents can enjoy rooftop gardens with unparalleled 360-degree vistas, and flat streets that are ideal for long walks or bike rides. You are also just steps away from Chase Center where you can catch a Warriors game or a concert. This area is also home to San Francisco’s most recent Library, the first in 40 years, and there is also the newly constructed Whole Foods Market on 4th Street. 

 A very fun set of cafes and restaurants have sprung up in this lively waterfront village. These include classic diners, gourmet pizza parlors, and down-home waterfront restaurants where you can find an old-fashioned burger and fries, with weekend brunch options through the roof. SPARK Social SF, a food truck park, beer & sangria garden, and event space is also in the heart of San Francisco’s Mission Bay neighborhood. 

One amazing aspect of life in Mission Bay is its remarkable proximity to downtown SF. Within 8 blocks, you’ve passed the ballpark, SF Museum of Modern Art (MOMA), and entered the bustling Financial District. Transportation from Mission Bay can’t be beaten. The Mission Creek Bike path is a tremendous asset, opening up many options without a car. MUNI lines, with extensions of the N Judah and T Third Street, connect the neighborhood with downtown San Francisco. The Caltrain Station makes rapid commutes available to the South Bay and San Jose. Mission Bay is also close to all freeway entrances, including 101, 280-South, and 80-East.
