Warnecke's was one of four master redevelopment plans devised by different teams for the Mission Bay neighborhood of San Francisco, CA, between 1980 and 1990. Others included those by I.M. Pei and Wallace, Roberts and Todd (1985), Mission Bay Planning Team (including Eckbo, Dean, Austin and WIlliams, 1987), and Skidmore, Owings and Merrill, San Francisco Office (1989). (See Sally Byrne Woodbridge, "Urban issues: Mission Bay," Progressive Architecture, vol. 71, no. 5, 05/1990, p. 121-122.) The area is considered a part of the larger South of Market neighborhood, occupying a formerly industrial section southeast of Downtown San Francisco. Its redevelopment has been fueled by the transition of the area from an industrial to an information/recreation-based economy, anchored by A,T, and T Park, the home of National League baseball team, the San Francisco Giants, and the move to the area of the University of California, San Francisco Medical Center.
