Mission Bay

Mission Bay in San Francisco is a small neighborhood just north of the Dogpatch and south of Oracle Park. It's also nearby Potrero Hill, the South of Market District (SoMa) and is right along the SF Bay.

Mission Bay is a neighborhood in San Francisco, California with a population of 12,169. Mission Bay is in San Francisco County and is one of the best places to live in California. Living in Mission Bay offers residents a dense urban feel and most residents rent their homes. In Mission Bay there are a lot of bars, restaurants, coffee shops, and parks. Many young professionals live in Mission Bay and residents tend to be liberal. The public schools in Mission Bay are above average.

Mission Bay is San Francisco’s newest neighborhood, which means it is populated by the Bay Area’s most tech-centric residents. They live in sleek and modern condominiums, giving Mission Bay’s vibrant cultural epicenter a unique buzz all its own, and this reimagined urban neighborhood is far from finished.

Mission Bay is unlike any other neighborhood in San Francisco. It has a history, but it lives in the present — and the future. It has a vast coastline to explore (not to mention it is adjacent to AT&T Park), and is poised for exciting growth. It expanded in September 2019 with the opening of the Chase Center. This multi-purpose facility is the home of our Golden State Warriors NBA Basketball team. It's used frequently for concerts from international stars such as Metallica, Cher, and Celine Dion. You will find about three or four big concerts here each month. It also draws in other performers such as comedians. The facility will host other large events and festivals throughout the year.

Along the shores of San Francisco Bay, just south of AT&T Park, a long-underused swath of land began to realize a potential greater than anything the city could have imagined when, in 2003, UCSF opened Genentech Hall, the first building on its Mission Bay campus.

Mission Bay is a breeding ground for ideas — and not only scientific ones. Mission Bay is for strolling the Bay Trail, scaling the walls at Mission Rock, and floating in a kayak waiting for a home run at McCovey Cove. Given how hard they work from Monday to Friday, there simply aren’t enough hours in a weekend to exhaust the go-getters of Mission Bay. This is the new San Francisco, full of the seekers and dreamers who’ve always come to San Francisco, but with a twist: Mission Bay is sleek and bustling. It is San Francisco’s future, the first neighborhood to establish itself in the city for over a century. Here you trade charm for efficiency; that might mean giving up your curved bay windows, but when was the last time you saw a Victorian with an on-site fitness center?

Mission Bay is a planned community, and the strategy was to provide housing targeted at young homebuyers with the long-term strategy of keeping them in the neighborhood throughout adulthood. Right now Mission Bay is a bargain among San Francisco neighborhoods and spacious homes with outdoor space and community perks.
