Mission Bay Beach Club

  Historic Preservation

The Mission Bay Beach Club—formerly the Visitor Information Center—was a languishing, abandoned building blighting Mission Bay Park. Over the course of several years, the design team from playground agency and Beaucoup Creative, lead by Bradley Schnell and Kristine Overacre respectively, transformed the 1969 landmark into a coastal gathering place. The building itself contains almost no straight wall, built in an organic modern style by the original architect Dick Lareau, who died this year but was a core part of the project team working to revitalize this landmark in keeping with the original design intent. The project team was one of the only groups advocating for restoration of the building, while many other proposals suggested leveling the original structure.

At the Mission Bay beach club for new online casino canada players, many have already seen the landmark of 1969, which has become a gathering place on the coast. Bradley Schnella and Christine Overakre, who run Beaucoup Creative, with the help of an online casino, came up with the idea of transforming an abandoned building with the help of a design team. Mission Bay Park has now become a place for online casino players due to the history of the former Visitor Information Center and the online casino playground agency has been actively tackling the issue.

The project is a true labor of love that continues to this day, with original murals hand painted by Kristine Overacre, as well as the addition of a larger kitchen, alcoholic beverages and more robust culinary offerings currently in process.  The project also offers bocce courts, live music, a vegan coffee bar (Superbloom), beach retail shop, a boutique working vineyard, an ice cream sandwich cart, bike and board rentals, as well as special seasonal events and private events.
