With the latest plans for UCSF’s future Child, Teen and Family Center, and Department of Psychiatry Building, slated to be presented to UC’s Board of Regents next month, a plugged-in tipster delivers the refined renderings and timing for the 148,000-square-foot development to rise on the corner Dogpatch parcel known as 2130 Third Street.

As designed by SKS Partners, along with ZGF and Pfau Long Architecture, the proposed development, which will offer state-of-the-art mental health services to Bay Area adults and children on an outpatient basis, house research and serve as a meeting hub and academic center for UCSF and its partners, will rise up to 68 feet in height along Third.

The building will step down to 45 feet in height along 18th Street.

It will rise back up to 58 feet in height along Tennessee.

And if all goes as currently envisioned, the development of 2130 Third Street will break ground in the fourth quarter of this year and the new center will open its doors in the first quarter of 2020.

    I get that this is largely an outpatient building, but I have to admit I kinda hate that UCSF is projecting this far south into the DogPatch neighborhood. I hope the remaining soft sites south of Mariposa go residential rather than institutional.

    I do think this is a really handsome building, and a nice change from the 5 story condo projects sprouting up everywhere. The composition is beautiful.

    Too bad there is no in-patient services. This city really needs it.

      My thoughts too, the number of inpatient beds have decreased dramatically over the years.

    Shouldn’t the bicyclists wear hemlets?

    Why did they wait until this building to make stuff that doesn’t look like sterile crap that belongs in suburbia?

    Aside from how handsome or not the new building design is, people should realize this project is displacing two renowned local creative businesses housed in the existing building (immersive media agency, Obscura Digital, and architecture firm, IwamotoScott).

    This is for the UCSF Medical Center, Department of PSYCHIATRY, not just psychology.
