The San Francisco Giants have been working over the past 18 months to refine and fully develop plans for the Mission Rock Project, and we are thrilled to be entering into the next stage of development. As the front door of our beloved ballpark, this property is of great strategic importance to the Giants and our community. Its successful development will enhance the neighborhood and diversify the economic position of the team, creating new revenue streams that will help us compete at the highest level. We are excited to transform and improve our neighborhood by replacing a large windswept surface parking lot with an inspired mixed-use community featuring a spectacular waterfront park, dramatic Bayfront residences, innovative work environments, original shops and cafes, and a refurbished historic pier. We look forward to working with the Port and City over the coming years to realize our shared vision for Mission Rock.
About San Francisco Giants
The San Francisco Giants of the National League is one of the oldest franchises in Major League Baseball. Boasting a 130-year history, the team moved to San Francisco from New York in 1958 playing a total of 42 years in Seals Stadium and Candlestick Park before moving to AT&T Park in 2000. The franchise was named 2010's Sports Organization of the Year by Street & Smith's Sports Business Journal Daily.
Since opening its gates, AT&T Park has become internationally-renowned as a premier venue in the world of both sports and entertainment. On the diamond, more than 37 million spectators have witnessed a number of magical moments and four playoff appearances, including the franchise's first-ever Perfect Game, thrown by Matt Cain on June 13, 2012 and in 2010 when the Giants became the World Series champions for the first time since moving West. In 2008, the Giants celebrated the team's 50th year in San Francisco and it was the center of the baseball universe when it hosted the 78th Major League Baseball All-Star Game on July 10, 2007. AT&T Park has also played host to some of music's biggest acts, including the Rolling Stones, Bruce Springsteen and the E-Street Band and Green Day.
Off the field, the Giants have one of the premier community outreach programs in professional sports, becoming the first team to implement a 100 percent participation program, involving every player, coach and uniformed staff member in at least one community project throughout the season. Through its community outreach programs, the Giants and the Giants Community Fund work with corporate and non-profit partners to raise awareness, educate and generate interest in a variety of issues important to both their fans and community including education/literacy, violence prevention, health and youth recreation and fitness.
From the team's first response to the Port of San Francisco's Request for Developer Qualifications, the Giants have had the good fortune to collaborate on Mission Rock with some of the City's best designers and engineers.
