Mission Rock Building A is one of four buildings in this extensive project aimed at developing one of the most prominent undeveloped sites in the Mission Bay neighborhood of San Francisco. Ten years in the making, the joint venture between the San Francisco Giants, Tishman Speyer, and the Port of San Francisco have collaborated with the community to create the vision for Mission Rock.
Building A, also known as “The Canyon”, is 376,000 square feet total, and is a 23-story mixed-use building featuring affordable housing, shops, and office space. The facade system is one of the most notable aspects of this building due to its uniqueness and intricacy. The variety of materials include glass fiber reinforced concrete (GFRC) prefabricated panels, concrete tiles, aluminum, steel, floor-to-ceiling windows, and wood seating. The GFRC panels manufactured by Clark Pacific are texturized with an uneven surface to mimic that of a rocky exterior.
