The first major tenant for San Francisco's Mission Rock Development Project is the city's famous Anchor Brewing Company, according to a release issued by the brewery and various reports by several news organizations.

The expansive development project is situated just south of AT&T Park along the city's waterfront. Plans released last April by the Port of San Francisco show a mixture of open space venues and new retail facilities slated for the area.

Anchor's addition at Pier 48 will allow the company to greatly expand its annual beer production from 180,000 barrels to 680,000. In addition to the brewing, distilling, and packaging aspects, the facility will also house a restaurant, museum, and education center, comprising nearly a quarter of the entire Mission Rock site. It's estimated that the Anchor expansion will create roughly 200 new jobs as well.

The mixed-use Mission Rock plan is currently a project being developed by the San Francisco Giants. It includes three, large open space venues and several roof-top green space areas are in the design as well.

The Mission Rock Project is one of several utilizing property controlled by the 150 year old Port of San Francisco.
