The SF Planning Department unanimously approved the SF Giant’s development project which would create a new “heart of Mission Bay south” on 28 acres of paved parking lots across the Lefty O’Doul Bridge from AT&T Park. What is unique isn’t just the scope of the project, called Mission Rock, which will include up to 1,500 housing units, 1.5 million square feet of retail and office space, and 8 acres of parks to the expanse of hardtop currently used by fans for parking and tailgating. What stood out was the near unanimity not only among SF Planning but also with respect to the many interest groups and stakeholders who are typically at odds with one another where development is concerned. The groups that lined up in favor of Mission Rock include: progressives, moderates, neighborhood residents, nonprofit leaders, housing advocates, environmentalists, educators, youth workers, and building trade representatives.
