Looking at the rundown post is kind of painful- notice how just about every project has the exact same look. Is one architecture firm working in this city or what?
In my opinion, most of what has been built in Mission Bay is 'turd'-like - especially north of the channel. And UCSF, which is a HUGE chunk of MB, is extremely sterile and much too beige.
That being said, I think there are a few promising projects under construction - Mission Bay Block 2, the new Public Safety to name a few. I think some of the excitement is derived from the hope that Mission Bay will someday become a worthy neighborhood amongst an already wonderful city.
