UCSF Mission Bay is the newest link in a campus chain that connects virtually every San Francisco neighborhood.
This sprawling 43-acre campus, located in the midst of a 303-acre residential and business development, will support 20 structures dedicated to biomedical research and education. The first research building, UCSF Genentech Hall, on the southwestern portion of the site bordering 16th Street, opened in January 2003.
Mission Bay will include three specialty hospitals—providing children’s, women’s, and cancer services—designed to elevate patient care to a new level of excellence.
From the community’s standpoint, Mission Bay represents enormous opportunities for:
- Creative partnerships—UCSF’s Community Advisory Group (CAG), which was reconfigured to include members who live near Mission Bay, offers input on all stages of campus planning.
- Employment—UCSF expects the Mission Bay project to house 9,100 University employees, many of them in new jobs. This does not include jobs that may be created by the biotechnology and life sciences businesses that we expect to surround the campus.
- Business—As the Mission Bay campus transforms the area into a hub of health care innovation, UCSF is partnering with biotech enterprises and others to move medicine to them next level.
- Cultural enrichment—The campus will enhance the cultural life of the neighborhood by reserving at least eight acres of publicly accessible open space, devoting one percent of the $1 to $2 billion in construction costs to a public arts program, and providing conference and recreational facilities for community members in addition to the campus community.
