Mission Rock Partners, a collaboration between the San Francisco Giants, Tishman Speyer and the Port of San Francisco, today announced an exciting initial lineup of restaurants and shops opening in Phase One of Mission Rock.
The five locally established retailers, many of which have achieved legendary status in the Bay Area, were carefully curated to animate the neighborhood and create an authentic sense of place. These shops will provide Mission Rock residents, workers and visitors with a dynamic mix of community-serving amenities.
“In addition to the incredible views and outdoor spaces that adorn Mission Rock, this eclectic array of retailers will help make Mission Rock a world-class destination,” said Tishman Speyer Managing Director Maggie Kadin. “Just as importantly, this first set of eateries and shops – and the ones that follow – will serve as a celebration of San Francisco’s diverse and innovative community of local business owners.”
“From the beginning, our goal was for Mission Rock to become San Francisco’s next great neighborhood and one that reflects the values and distinct character of the Bay Area,” said Giants President and CEO Larry Baer. “Our retail partners represent the best of the Bay Area and we couldn’t be more excited to welcome them to the district.”
“We’re proud to see the vision of Mission Rock develop into the beautiful reality of a diverse neighborhood that supports local businesses on our waterfront,” said Elaine Forbes, Executive Director of the Port of San Francisco. “We look forward to supporting more local entrepreneurs as they move in and help us provide a safe, clean, vibrant waterfront for all residents and visitors.”
In total, this initial slate of retailers will occupy approximately 11,000 square feet at the base of Mission Rock’s first buildings, which are scheduled to be completed by mid-2024. Additional retailers, including a full-service, flagship restaurant, are anticipated to participate as Phase One of the project nears completion. The inaugural group of retailers, which will begin to open in early 2024, include:
- Arsicault Bakery, the San Francisco bakery whose croissants have been recognized among the best in the country. It will open its third Bay Area location at Dr. Maya Angelou Lane and Mission Rock Square in Building F, Mission Rock’s second residential tower.
- Blades Co. Barbershop, which offers high-end men’s haircuts and spa treatments by masterful barbers. Blades will bring its third Bay Area shop to Building B, a commercial tower designed to accommodate life sciences research and development, adjacent to Dr. Maya Angelou Lane.
- Ike’s Love & Sandwiches, the San Francisco-born favorite, is known for lines around the block, craveable secret ingredients and inventive flavor combinations inspired by notable local figures. Their store at Building B on Third Street at Toni Stone Crossing will be their milestone 100th location and a new flagship for the brand that was founded in the Castro.
- LuxFit, San Francisco’s premier outdoor gym offering personal training, group classes and a self-service open gym. It will open its first brick-and-mortar location in Building B, adjacent to Channel Street.
- Proper Food, which offers its delicious and wholesome grab-and-go fare from locations across San Francisco and New York City. Its newest shop will be in the base of Visa’s global and North American headquarters adjacent to Dr. Maya Angelou Lane.
The retail leasing program is being spearheaded by the CBRE team of Alex Sagues and Laura Barr, which represented Mission Rock Partners in each transaction.
A partnership between the San Francisco Giants, Tishman Speyer and the Port of San Francisco, Mission Rock represents over 15 years of city planning and community input to transform a surface parking lot across from Oracle Park into an exciting new neighborhood featuring stylish rental homes, inspired parks and open spaces, community-serving retail, innovative workspaces and parking to serve ballpark patrons and the surrounding area.
The Canyon, the first building to be completed at Mission Rock, welcomed its first residents in June. The 23-story tower includes 283 apartments, 102 of which are available at below market rates. Building F, a second residential tower that will add 254 apartments to the neighborhood, topped out in June.
Construction is complete on Mission Rock’s first office building, which will serve as Visa’s global and North American headquarters. Work is also progressing on a commercial building that has been designed to accommodate life sciences research and development, and China Basin Park, a five-acre community gathering place.
