This Studio Gang building is exactly what Mission Bay needs
The new building is called “Mission Rock Building F”—and the “F” is for fantastic

This in-progress residential high-rise is what Mission Bay, a neighborhood known for its many new, albeit listless structures, needs. Mission Rock Building F, as it’s called, looks like that slightly askew stack of books on your desk. It’s mammoth but warm—and fun. It is, in a word, lovely.

Dreamed up by architect Jeanie Gang, plus two principals at Studio Gang, as well as Quezada Architecture, the tower’s unique form also serves a purpose. The floor plates are carved back at the corners to create outdoor terraces, built to allow for maximum sunlight and minimal wind . . . .

The building will rise 23 floors, come with 255 rental units, and offer retail and restaurant space. Its base will feature carved steps leading to a “mesa-like space” with planted terraces and raked seating . . . .

Totally agree!
