Kaiser to abandon Potrero Hill clinic plans, move project to Mission Bay
San Francisco Business Times

Kaiser Permanente is abandoning controversial plans for a 190,000-square-foot medical office building at 16th and Mississippi streets in San Francisco’s Potrero Hill district, and instead will put the clinic at 1600 Owens Street in nearby Mission Bay.

Kaiser officials confirmed the switcheroo July 11.

The new site, at 1600 Owens St., is owned by Alexandria Real Estate Equities. Joe Fragola, a Kaiser spokesman, said the site is already approved and permitted, “and allows us to open two years sooner at a big costs savings.”
