Welcome to Mission Bay/ Dog Patch
A trendy and vibrant, up-and-coming community
Making up a portion of the eastern side of San Francisco, Mission Bay overlooks the bay and the harbor and is across from Oracle Park. Just south of the community lies Dogpatch, a historic, art-centered neighborhood with lofts, independent shops, and excellent eateries. Mission Bay is named after the 18th-century Mission Dolores, which is one of the city’s oldest icons. Mission Bay has a long history in San Francisco as an industrial zone on the harbor. The area remained an industrial area until the late 1990s when the city decided to reconstruct the zone into a community living space. The industrial buildings are now being transformed into luxury complexes with bayside views.
Real estate in Mission Bay is modern and trendy. New developments are constantly being added in contemporary styles with the latest conveniences. Mission Bay has a youthful vibe and attracts young professionals.
