Mission Bay. The Mission Bay neighborhood spans from the northern border of the Dogpatch/Central Waterfront district to the edge of SOMA. It was originally comprised of shipping yards and warehouses; though some of these structures still remain today, there is a mixture of newly built and renovated buildings and developing properties. Mission Bay is now a more familiar place, consisting of condos, lofts and biotech research facilities. And it was recently developed for a new UCSF Mission Bay campus.
For dining, you can choose from an array of dining establishments, from fine dining to takeout to local bars and pubs. The Third Street light rail makes commuting virtually carefree, or you can choose from transportation including Muni bus lines, taxis, UCSF shuttle buses, multiple freeway entrances, or if you ride a bike you can park it and take a ride south from the Caltrain station.
At first glance, there doesn't appear to be much happening on the streets, but at Mission Creek Park, which runs parallel from Mission Creek between 4th and 7th Streets, you'll find a tiled pathway leading to a viewing platform that overlooks the creek, with plenty of green bike paths just minutes from AT&T Park. There's a public boat launch for nonmotorized boats and kayaks, and there are three sports courts in the area: basketball, sand volleyball and tennis, as well as a small dog park where pets can enjoy off-leash fun. On the west side of the park is a floor-to-ceiling glass and brick pavilion which can be used for special events.
The nightlife in Mission Bay is bustling and lively. Transportation runs nightly down King Street south to Third Street. You can grab a drink, play a quick pool game, watch a sports event, bowl with friends, or attend open mic nights and listen to live music.
For up-and-coming areas such as Mission Bay and China Basin, one can confidently say it is one of the most desirable places to live compared to anywhere else in the city.
