The sprawling Mission Rock mega-project, which covers 28 acres in total, is essentially one enormous jobsite made up of many distinct and rather large jobsites of their own. And now, in a hot phase of construction, the super-jobsite of Mission Rock is teeming with construction workers from a variety of trades.
It’s uncommon to have so many craftspeople together at work in one place, so Organized Labor headed out to take advantage of these unique circumstances and get some photos of the people who are hard at work bringing the project together.
Specifically, we focused our lens on the building trades workers finishing off the first residential building of the Mission Rock project, Parcel A (nicknamed “the Canyon”). This 24-story, Swinerton-built apartment complex is the result of a public-private partnership among the San Francisco Giants, Tishman Speyer, and the Port of San Francisco. While visiting the building, we found carpenters, drywall finishers, electricians, painters, and tile setters all at work across multiple floors.
We also snapped some shots of an outside crew that included landscape architects, laborers, and engineers. They were moving rebar and laying the groundwork for what will become the inland portion of China Basin Park.
