Mission Bay Walking Tour
“Channel,” on Block 2 at Mission Bay, is a new mixed-use project designed by Ankrom Moisan Architects and Ignition Architecture. This project occupies an 89,000 square foot parcel and, given its proximity to the 3rd and 4th Street bridges, is positioned to be a gateway to Mission Bay. Nibbi Brothers is the General Contractor for the project.
The building is a Type I concrete structure with 440,000 gross square feet, comprising 315 units of market rate apartments over 8,000 square feet of street level retail, and two levels of interior parking. The third floor features two large upper level amenity courtyards facing Channel and the views of the city and ballpark. Exterior materials include metal panel, exposed concrete, brick, and stucco.
Once a tidal bay, this area was filled at the beginning of the 20th century to provide the land needed for rail yards and associated structures that served shipping piers along the bay. Ankrom Moisan and Ignition Architecture drew inspiration from this rail yard context for the design of Block 2, referencing it in the expression of the massing and the articulation of all portions of the design.
