El Corazon? Media Gulch? Mission Creek?
So many names for one neighborhood! Residents have long been confused about what to call the sleepy corner of the Mission between South Van Ness and Potrero Avenues, and 16th and 23rd Streets. As it's removed from the hustle and bustle of Valencia and Mission Street corridors, it seems unfair to just lump it with the rest of the Mission. (Quick aside: have you been to Valencia Street on a weekend evening recently?! Hustle and bustle is a massive understatement.)
In the past this section of the Mission had been called El Corazon, Media Gulch, or NEMA (unclear what this acronym represents perhaps North Eastern Mission Adjacent?). A couple of years ago the local merchants association decided to promote the name Mission Gulch. But it seems their fickle minds have changed again, love it or hate it, and the new name they have settled on is Mission Creek. Word on the street is that the namesake creek still winds around deep below the nabe's surface.
Whatever you decide to call it, this once quiet neighborhood should no longer be overlooked. Already home to mainstays such as Universal Cafe, Atlas Cafe and Blowfish Sushi, the neighborhood has exploded with new and acclaimed restaurants, bars, gourmet coffee outposts, galleries, local designers, manufacturers, workspaces and (ooo la la) spas. The Mission Creek Merchants Association says that the neighborhood is working to define itself not unlike the Dog Patch neighborhood as "artist, meets merchant, meets industrial," but still an excellent place to live. As such, the locale has proven to be a very desirable place to purchase. The neighborhood is experiencing the low inventory seen throughout the city, and coupled with its newfound desirability, prices are on the rise. There are lots of great live/work lofts in the area so as to immerse yourself in the artsy vibe, and many adorable Victorian single family homes to get the classic SF urban experience.
Warriors Arena Inching Forward
Whether you believe it will really happen or not, the plans for the Warriors new San Francisco home seem to be inching forward. A few months back current mayor Ed Lee and former mayor Gavin Newsom were on hand at a kickoff ceremony at Piers 30 and 32 announcing the deal for the new arena. And now a new public affairs vice president has been appointed to oversee what could be one of the most difficult obstacles to overcome with San Francisco's super-engaged populace: neighborhood, community and political issues.
The piers have had a few false starts. Most notably they were to be the site of a cruise ship terminal, and more recently headquarters for the now downsized America's Cup. Luckily for the Warriors team, much of the research and Environmental Impact Reports for the area may be applicable to the proposed arena. The city recently named a 16 person advisory committee made up of residents and business owners in the immediate vicinity of Piers 30 and 32 to add feedback and to work with the city Board of Supervisors on the project. If all goes according to proposed plans, the Warriors hope the arena is ready for the 2017 basketball season.
