Mission Bay may not conjure visions of classic San Francisco, but this contemporary neighborhood is commonly deemed up-and-coming. Just across Mission Creek from AT&T Park (Go Giants!), Mission Bay’s wide boulevards and vacant lots are steadily filling in with luxury apartment complexes and university campus buildings boasting bayside views.
