UNDER CONSTRUCTION IN 2019:
Mission Bay continues to build…
WARRIORS ARENA, NEW UCSF AND UBER HEADQUARTERS
Several projects are under construction in the southeastern quadrant of Mission Bay: Chase Center Events Center, UBER headquarters, and two UCSF facilities. Chase Center will open to special events in September; basketball starts in October. UBER’s two ‘high rise’ buildings adjacent to the Chase Center will be opening in 2020 and are expected to house some 6,000 workers. The UCSF Center for Vision Neuroscience is also slated to open in 2020. These buildings are between Third & Illinois; 16th St and Mariposa.
STREETS & BRIDGES
Terry Francois Blvd will be realigned and opened at 16th St. by the time the Chase Center opens.
The final phases of the Third St. Bridge retrofit is underway. The bridge will be closed entirely (to vehicles, pedestrians and bikes) for two to three weeks at a time throughout July, August and September. Work is being done around the clock to expedite the project and minimize full closures.
The Central Subway will run from Stockton/Washington streets in Chinatown to Caltrain at 4th & King Streets in Mission Bay. Travel time on the new T subway will be just 8 minutes (it currently takes 20+ minutes on buses) when it opens in 2019. The new T-line extension will have two SoMa stops: at Brannan Street (above ground) and and a subway station at Yerba Buena/Moscone Center. The subway will also stop at Market St/Union Square and in Chinatown.
Closures continue on 4th Street from Harrison to King Street. Testing is scheduled to begin later this year with the subway opening in 2020.
Transit only lanes, transit bulbs (waiting areas) and new signals to improve safety and bus travel times on 16th between Mission Bay and Mission Street, are underway. This project should be finished in 2020.
Ferry Service is Coming
The Port is looking to build a ferry landing in Mission Bay capable of handling up to 10,000 passengers per day. Two ferries will be able to berth simultaneously; a water taxi may also be included. A temporary landing may be available as soon as October, 2019 at Pier 48-1/2.
