Mission Bay Finally Becomes a Real Neighborhood

Mission Bay, San Francisco's most recent exercise in neighborhood-building, gets chalked up as a success today in the Chron, as one reporter documents the influx of young families and empty-nesters to an area that was considered a ghost town just a couple years ago.

Wait! Humor us as we continue.

Read: "Mission Bay feels as if it escaped the economic downturn - stores are opening, buildings are going up, and young professionals are zipping out of $700,000 condos to get to work. Most live in a six-block area north of Mission Bay Creek. These pioneers say it's now starting to feel like a place worth staying in on the weekends."

Well, buildings were going up. But the promise is likely real— just add Mission Rock, a new police HQ, and let our Little South Bay simmer for 15 to 20 years.
