“Thrive” is a mantra from Kaiser Permanente, constantly repeated in their adds. They probably sponsored the sign.

Yeah, Thrive City is the Kaiser-sponsored plaza at Chase Center.

Kaiser Permanente has been a long time sponsor/partner of the Warriors.

Not sure how I feel about the sculpture out front though... seems a bit... evocative.

block 9

^ agree that the Uber complex turned out nicely - looks good, has inviting landscaping, and meets the street pretty well too.

changing subject, SFYimby has a nice update on block 9 over on the east end of the block that contains the public safety building, across the street from the south end of Mission Rock

If memory serves me right I believe there will be a 'wall' of green vines and other plants in between the outer glass wall and the inner wall.

while it was under construction, there were some hanging plants in some of the windows. at least some of those looked like they died after a while, not sure why or if this has any impact on the plan to have them there going forward.

I have been away from SF for a while, but am back, so might be able to wander over there one of these days soon to look again.

sort of hard to tell, even in person, but the few hanging plants look dead to me from the street. I don't think you can make them out in this pic



elsewhere, here is the work along the Creek, which I had thought would be further along by now







block 9W



new artwork(?) going in at Uber



at Crane Cove Park, they have been working on the extension of 19th St



block 6W affordable housing almost done



detail



north side



it also completes the view south from across the Creek



UCSF Psychiatry Center, Third St side



18th St side



Tennessee St side



fencing mostly down around the Weill Neurosciences building, so Gene Friend Way is finally settling into its completed state, looking east toward Third St





since the Neurosciences building pretty much completes the streetscape for now, here is a shot down Fourth, a street that - in this form in MB - didn't exist at all until 2002 or 2003, I think, and wasn't completely opened until 2009 or so.



here are the shots from the Rutter Center roof, west to east, with 5M making the most prominent new appearance on the skyline, and block 6W and the hotel the most notable recent appearances in MB itself

Thanks Timbad, fantastic as always! Any idea if all those parking lots towards the end of the pictures are spoken for? I know 1450 Owens (which I believe is a bit to the left) was approved.

besides the Owens site, the lot just on this side of the traffic circle on the west side is to be a K-8 public school, with construction start repeatedly delayed over the years and currently slated for something like next year - back a few pages I think there was discussion.

and the lot immediately to the right of the traffic circle is to be affordable housing, the financing for which is still being put together I think.

besides that, that's all UCSF. they have chosen not to build on these parcels and instead have been buying up, and developing, sites outside the area given to them as their original campus (both elsewhere in MB and in Dogpatch) in recent years. must suit them better, but it has left this crater here for the time being.

edit: at least part of one of the parcels next to the Owens site is slated for greenspace as well, perhaps a playing field of some kind. not sure what the status of that is - almost all the park parcels in MB were/are extremely delayed in coming to be.

Those northern parcels on UCSF's campus will eventually be research buildings (aside from the K-8 school site mentioned by timbad). The stuff UCSF has been doing elsewhere in MB and Dogpatch is largely clinical focused, as they want that in closer proximity to the hospital. (The Tidelands student housing on Minnesota is another exception, but they didn't want to dedicate more core campus space to housing and it serves as a better transition to Dogpatch anyway.)

No idea when those parking lots might get replaced by buildings though, as after 20 years of focus on Mission Bay, UCSF is turning back to Parnassus and getting ready to invest mucho dollars there with the new hospital and other updates. Can't complain though, modernization at Parnassus is desperately needed.

the work along the Creek coming along sloooooooowly but surely, from the west side





I hadn't noticed before (maybe it is new, part of the ongoing work), but there is a public seating area tucked in between the two buildings of block 1 facing the creek





... and looking back from the east



the hotel is about done I guess



block 9W (or 9A), aka 410 China Basin

UCSF says it has started construction on Block 34, bounded by Third, Mariposa, Illinois, and the new Valley Center for Vision to the north. There will be a 500-space parking garage at the south end of the block at Mariposa, and then a 500,000 square foot, five-story clinical building with ambulatory care, specialty clinics, and a pharmacy. Completion expected in August 2024.

I just moved away from that corner, but I feel a little bad for that neighborhood. That corner has been under construction for years straight. Everything from the new parks, the water treatment site, intersection rework, paving of the Block 34 like 8 months ago (I can't believe they paved that whole thing just to tear it up 8 months later), and now the beginning of another massive construction project.

I get that UCSF needs parking, but this corner is heavily pedestrian and I can't help but think it's going to be less friendly with this new change. It's right on the water, and on the string of new parks which have throngs of people every weekend.

That parking garage is massive, and their proposal for people to just drive around to 16th street to Illinois and go from that direction will never come to fruition since most exits from the garage will go down Mariposa to the 280 onramp.

The corner of Mariposa, Illinois, and Terry Francois is going to be crazy when all this is completed.

^ I share much of those thoughts. parking garages are never a good mix with residential and that's a pretty blank (SW) corner to show to the neighborhood. having said that, I'm appreciative that they're going to try to make the south face about as green and inviting as they can.

traffic on Illinois has usually struck me as fairly light (it could be I am not usually there during busy car times) as a starting point, so I am going to try to be optimistic about the resulting congestion around the intersection you mentioned. we'll see. Mariposa was already recently widened, so that damage is already done.

I'll add that I'm glad for the 'paseo' and generally nice-looking landscaping around the block. the look of the buildings themselves doesn't either delight or disgust me particularly.

and thanks to WildCowboy for the scoop! after being away for a while, I have also not been out and about as often recently as I used to be, otherwise I probably would have noticed this.
