I can't believe nothing was ever done with UCSF's Third Street Garage after the glass panels started cracking and were taken down. Even the solar panel ones are gone. Never looked nearly as good we'd hoped from the original renderings, but the current (permanent?) look is just awful.

Agreed. What an eye-sore. I'm hoping the completion of the Warriors arena inspires some upgrades. Maybe some vines/foliage? Artwork? Something like the garage at SJC?

Honestly, at this point, even some Warriors banners or digital billboards would be an upgrade.

^^I'm going to guess they haven't done anything because they are reengineering and remanufacturing some replacement panels designed not to crack and will put them up when available. That certainly would be the best solution. Is there some reason that's unlikely? Admittedly I don't know much about the situation but that would explain why there hasn't been something different done.

Mission Bay employers struggle with crushing traffic — and Warriors arena isn't even built yet
By Kevin Truong – Multimedia producer, San Francisco Business Times
Mar 1, 2018, 2:39pm PST Updated Mar 1, 2018, 3:41pm

Employees at Bayer’s Mission Bay office have the San Francisco Giants season schedule displayed prominently in their workspaces, but it’s not necessarily because they’re big fans.

For workers at the company’s West Coast Innovation Center, Giants day games at AT&T Park mean even more crushing commutes and adjustments like re-scheduling meetings with out-of-towners and leaving early to avoid gametime crowds.

While the planned completion of the Warriors’ $1 billion Chase Center in 2019, the continuing buildout of UC San Francisco and the arrival of major tech companies like Uber and Dropbox to Mission Bay heralds a coming-of-age for the formerly industrial district, the area’s traffic looks likely only to worsen.

The lack of viable transportation options and increasing congestion driven by the influx of new tenants could hurt the neighborhood’s thriving business community with big investment in transit. Either way, it has shaped the work patterns of employees in the area . . . .

Mission Bay is something of a choke point in the city’s transportation infrastructure, with few routes in and out of the area. That was fine when the only thing rolling in and out were industrial vehicles, not so with thousands more daily employees and rabid sports fans.

Regis Kelly, director of the UC’s QB3 life sciences incubator, has already seen the detrimental effects of congestion, especially for employees who have children. He, too, has a schedule for game days when he lets workers out earlier to make specific drop-off and pick-up times for their families.

Kelly’s contingency planning extends to his own trips to the East Bay where he oversees QB3’s Berkeley branch. He said he will rarely go out to a meeting in Berkeley unless he can leave San Francisco by 1 p.m. . . . .

Seems to me the issue here is traffic on I-80/280 and the Bay Bridge. I've never noted traffic on Mission Bay surface streets that's any worse than the rest of the city. Or has something changed?

this is tangentially related to MB traffic, at least UCSF's portion

in Dogpatch, the UCSF Child, Teen and Family Center and Department of Psychiatry Building at 2130 Third Street looks like it's about to get underway, since the demolition of the shrouded building is the first step

It's been ten years since they took all of the glass panels down.

I know there was a dispute among the university, contractor, and architects over who should be responsible for paying to fix the issue. I have a feeling the university ended up on the hook and decided they didn't have the money to do anything. Hard to raise gift funds to pretty up a parking garage.

^^If it's in court that could certainly explain a lengthy delay.

socketsite has info and renderings of what will go up on the western half of block 6, which is the nearer portion of the block you can see under construction above. it's 152 affordable apartments, hoping to break ground in about a year. the shot below is from about the same angle as the pic above, but a little lower, of course



with this one in place, that will leave three housing parcels (all affordable) to be developed in MB: the one behind the public safety building, the one on the lot where the warehouse is about to be demolished, and the one next door to the one just getting underway on Third St right now

Mission Bay has to be one of the largest redevelopment projects in the country.

here's Curbed's version, too.

seems to have been a ceremonial groundbreaking - I walked by the site yesterday evening and didn't see any equipment or signs of activity there, unless a Port-A-Potty counts
