SPA TIME // Mission Bay

Once a neglected former rail yard, Mission Bay is set to be remade as a tech and biotech hub with 6,000 residential units. As a place to call home, though, it’s one of the city’s least strollable places, short on amenities and long on things like fenced-off plots of nothing. One such lot, the five acres bounded by Third and Fourth streets, and by Mission Bay Boulevard North and South, is slated to be made over as part of Mission Bay public park system, but that’s still years away. In the meantime, developer District Development is introducing a panoply of interim uses, fromNomad Gardens (which opened last year) to a forthcoming collaboration with SoMa Streat Food and a soccer field by SFF Soccer—all amenities that should help Mission Bay feel like a more inviting place to call home.
