Land Use Program
The Yard at Mission Rock is based on a light and flexible physical infrastructure capable of expanding and contracting as the site program changes: a temporary village of shipping containers bringing some of the best elements of great neighborhoods to the site. These include local food and drink, a rotating section of pop-up shops, cultural programming, plus public amenities, like large steps, decking, park furniture, greenery and a promenade for strolling and relaxing – all prototyping the kind of urban culture that can generate life in the future neighborhood.
The Yard at Mission Rock will allow the San Francisco Giants to test urban design concepts and relationships with potential future tenants and cultural programmers in a low risk environment, as well as attracting businesses and customers to the first phase of the development. The site utilizes 70 parking spaces in the Mission Rock Lot A parking area, and will run for 2-5 years.
