Project Overview

The Child, Teen and Family Center is dedicated to advancing the prevention and treatment of mental illness. Scheduled to open in spring of 2019, UCSF is actively engaging neighbors as we plan for the development of this project.  The planned mental health service and resource center at 2130 Third Street will offer state-of-the-art services to Bay Area adults and children, house research and become a hub where UCSF can host meetings and exchange expertise with San Francisco community and government partners.

The center, made possible by an anonymous $50 million gift, also will house UCSF’s Department of Psychiatry, sitting in close proximity to both the UCSF neuroscience research community and UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital San Francisco at Mission Bay.

The facility will be a centerpiece of UCSF’s plan to create a national center for excellence in mental health that encompasses clinical care, research and training.

UCSF Campus Life Services Transportation Fact Sheet 2017

UCSF held a community meeting to solicit feedback on the proposed building design for a UCSF Child, Teen and Family Center and Department of Psychiatry building at 2130 Third Street (along 18th Street between Third & Tennessee streets).

UCSF has been in discussions with neighbors in planning for the development of this outpatient center that will provide a beautiful state-of-the-art setting for superior, family-focused mental health care, informed by the latest research in psychiatry and neuroscience.

UCSF shared information about our proposed design for a building that will provide services to the community, the Bay Area and beyond, while substantially improving our understanding of illness prevention and treatment of children, adolescents and adults.  This project would include clinical research, education and administrative functions, addressing a critical need for research and training to advance the prevention and treatment of mental illness, including aging-related diseases.  The proposed project is anticipated to start construction late 2017 with occupancy in early 2020.


 

2130 Third St. Child Teen and Family Center and UCSF Department of Psychiatry Draft Environmental Impact Report Public Comment Period Extended 30 Days from January 6 to February 6, 2017

UCSF held two consecutive meetings on Dec. 6, proposing to develop a new Child, Teen and Family Center and Department of Psychiatry building on the site of 2130 Third Street.  The proposed project would provide a location for clinic and office space for the UCSF Child Teen and Family Center (CTFC) and the UCSF Department of Psychiatry. The outpatient clinic would be managed by the UCSF Department of Psychiatry and would comprise existing departmental patient care, as well as research and training activities, plus two Department of Pediatrics patient care and research programs. Other departmental activities include adult mental health clinical services, a broad array of research and training programs and administrative services. Clinicians, educators, researchers, trainees and staff in this new building would largely be relocated from the Langley Porter Psychiatric Institute (LPPI) at UCSF’s Parnassus Heights and other campus sites.

The project site is about 33,600 square feet and is located in the Dogpatch neighborhood, at 18th Street between Third and Tennessee streets, one block south of the UCSF Mission Bay campus site. The existing three-story office building is approximately 36,000 gross square feet (gsf), and the building and its associated surface parking lot would be demolished as part of the proposal. The proposed building would be approximately 150,000 gsf (excluding parking) and would contain outpatient clinics, dry research space, educational space, administrative offices, and may include some accessory retail. The proposed building would be three to five stories, measured between 45 and 68 feet in height with some underground parking.

Preliminary Building Design Presentation for 2130 Third Street

During the first part of the meeting, the building project team provided an update on its work to develop the proposed project design.  We shared preliminary design ideas, recently shared with the Dogpatch Neighborhood Association/Potrero Boosters Design and Development Committee (Committee). The project team plans to work with the Committee to refine the project design prior to a future building design presentation with neighbors.

May 5, 2016 Community Meeting

UCSF invited neighbors to a communiity meeting to discuss the development of a Child, Teen and Family Center at 2130 Third Street (along 18th Street between Third and Tennessee streets). The meeting was held on May 5, 2016 at the Minnesota Street Project gallery.

We want to work with our neighbors as we plan for this outpatient center that will provide a beautiful state-of-the-art setting for superior, family-focused mental health care, informed by the latest research in psychiatry and neuroscience.
 


Developer Selection for Child, Teen & Family Center

UCSF has selected the development team of SKS Partners, LLC and Prado Group Inc. as the preferred developer for development of the Child, Teen and Family Center and Department of Psychiatry building at 2130 Third Street in the Dogpatch neighborhood.

SKS/Prado was selected as part of a competitive “Request for Offers” process that was launched in September 2015.  The request solicited offers from development teams interested in ground-leasing the 2130 Third Street site and designing, constructing and operating a facility that would be leased back to the University. 

The next step is for SKS/Prado and UCSF to negotiate contract documents.

Both companies are privately held real estate development and investment management companies based in San Francisco and have extensive experience working with the City and the communities surrounding their projects. The team also has a history of successful public-private development with UCSF.

UCSF’s proposed Child, Teen and Family Center and Department of Psychiatry building is being planned to provide outpatient mental health services, as well as to serve as a base for research and training to advance the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of mental illness. 

Over the past few months, UCSF has been introducing the proposed project to the community. The next community meeting is scheduled for May 5, 6:30 pm, at the Minnesota Street Project, 1275 Minnesota Street.


January 25, 2016 Community Meeting

On Monday, January 25, 2016, UCSF hosted a community meeting at the UCSF Medical Center at Mission Bay, to present information about proposed developments in Mission Bay and Dogpatch. Approximately 30 neighbors participated in a lively discussion about sites located at 2130 Third Street and 566, 590 and 600 Minnesota Street. Dr. Matthew State presented on the Department of Psychiatry Child, Teen and Family Center to be located along the Third Street commercial corridor, to be occupy a building that would have an appropriately scaled down neighbor-facing side along Tennessee Street.  He explained how this project would transform mental healthcare by serving as a resource to educate area clinicians on new treatment models while delivering essential mental health services to families and seniors. Dr. Dan Lowenstein shared information about UCSF’s housing need for affordable graduate student and trainee housing at the Minnesota Street site. Housing is being considered because of campus proximity for students to work, while lessening transportation impacts and the extent to which UCSF’s students would compete for affordable housing in the city. As a next step, we are inviting neighbors to participate in the Minnesota Street Housing design-planning workshop on Feb. 16, 2016.

UCSF recently purchased three adjacent properties at 566, 590 and 600 Minnesota Street as a potential site to build critically needed, affordable housing for graduate students and trainees. UCSF is evaluating all options for creating new housing that adds to the university’s overall affordable housing options and simultaneously lessens its reliance on the city’s general rental market.

UCSF also received a $50 million gift to develop a Child, Teen and Family Center at 2130 Third St. (along 18th Street between 3rd & Tennessee Streets). This center will provide a state-of-the-art setting for superior, family-focused mental health care, informed by the latest research. During the meeting, UCSF shared information about our plans for outpatient clinics and research programs on this site. This work will provide services to the community and broader Bay Area, while substantially improving our understanding of illness prevention and treatment of children, adolescents and adults.

We look forward to continued discussions to get your invaluable feedback on our preliminary plans.
