Work Started on 23-Story Res Tower in San Francisco’s Mission Rock Neighborhood


The Mission Rock Partners development team, a collaboration of the San Francisco Giants and Tishman Speyer, have begun construction on Parcel F, a 23-story multi-family residential tower in San Francisco’s Mission Rock neighborhood.

Designed by award-winning global architecture and urban design practice Studio Gang, Parcel F will encompass 254 rental apartments – 97 of which will be offered below market rate – along with a series of amenity and outdoor spaces. The 315k sf tower, which is expected to open in 2024, will also host a variety of street-level shops and cafes, as well as nearly 25k sf of co-working space.

Parcel F is the fourth and final tower in the first phase of the Giants’ and Tishman Speyer’s creation of a dynamic 28-acre, mixed-use waterfront community across from Oracle Park. Mission Rock Partners recently topped off “The Canyon,” a mixed-use tower designed by MVRDV featuring 283 apartments – 102 of which will be affordable – along with office space, retail and restaurants.

Construction is also ongoing on Visa’s new global headquarters by Henning Larsen and another commercial/life science building by WORKac, each encompassing 300k sf with ground floor retail. In addition to designing Parcel F, Studio Gang facilitated the collaboration among the cohort of design architects of the Phase One buildings.

“Parcel F is designed to work with its adjacent buildings to set up a welcoming and diverse neighborhood from day one—a place where people want to be and where they can comfortably get to know each other and spend time together. The tower’s base incorporates a range of storefronts and micro-activations at street level that give the building a human scale,” said Studio Gang founder, Jeanne Gang. “We’ve also carved into the base to create an inviting outdoor space with sunny planted terraces and raked seating, like a mesa, where residents can socialize and relax, taking in views of the activity in the main public square below.”

The sculpting strategy of Parcel F continues up the tower, where floorplates are carved back at the corners to create comfortable outdoor terraces. Oriented and shaped to maximize sunlight and minimize wind, the terraces feature impressive views of the surrounding city and bay, while continuing the “community topography” started at the mesa. Subtle variations in color bring added character to the tower.

A lively “sky garden” will adorn the top of the tower, where residents of Mission Rock can relax, socialize and enjoy the view. The garden’s regionally-appropriate plantings will create an attractive place for birds, butterflies and other pollinators to visit, supporting healthy biodiversity within the city. Parcel F, which is targeting LEED Gold certification, will be steps from China Basin Park, a five-acre waterfront park designed by SCAPE to act as the cultural and recreational centerpiece of Mission Rock.

Upon completion, Mission Rock will encompass approximately 1,200 rental apartments, 40% of which will be affordable to low- and moderate-income households; eight acres of public parks and open space; up to 1.4 msf of high-quality office and lab space; over 200k sf of neighborhood retail and local manufacturing space; a parking structure to serve the ballpark and other local needs; and the rehabilitation of historic Pier 48.
