Following an unusual permit for 900 7th Street in Mission Bay, as covered by SF YIMBY last week, recent news has broken that the application is a proposed new distribution center for Amazon. The tech giant has reportedly purchased the lot for $200 million. Amazon’s proposed Logistics Facility will replace Recology’s proposed mixed-use 470-550-unit project designed by SOM.
Recent permits have provoked confusion concerning the 5.8 acre-parcel at 900 7th Street in Mission Bay, San Francisco. Recology, a San Francisco-based company, is the current property owner and has been since the 1970s. SFYIMBY confirmed with the developers that their proposed 1.2 million square foot mixed-use development, designed by SOM, is very much an active project. We had to verify this because of a recent project review meeting application for a commercial facility on the same land. Recology learned of the contradictory permits because of our correspondence.

The busy Alexandria Real Estate Equities (ARE), the largest real estate investment trust (REIT) for life science real estate in the USA, is responsible for the development.
