Approximately, 30% of the land in Mission Bay is dedicated to public parks. These parks run through the core of the project, including the six-block long Commons, the Esplanade north of the Channel, P-1 south of the Channel, the parks fronting Terry François and the P-26 at the southern edge of Mission Bay, defining the different neighborhoods within Mission Bay.
CLA worked with the Olin Partnership on the design of the first two blocks of the Commons, P-16 and P-17. We worked with the San Francisco Redevelopment Agency, BCDC, Department of Public Works, the Mission Creek Neighborhood Group, and MUNI for coordination and approval of the final plans. Park P-18 was developed to provide a place for the pump station and offers a mini park for the adjacent residential development, the Radiance, overlooking the Bay. We have continued to develop and completed Parks P-10 which is at the western edge of the Commons, marking the major entry to Mission Bay from 7th and Owens Street.
