Interview with One Mission Bay's Matt Pici
Our sales associate Matt Pici came all the way to ONE Mission Bay from Miami and is so happy he didn’t miss the opportunity to work on the best project in San Francisco, with the best team in the town. He shares what lead him to the Bay area, what residents can get excited about at OMB and the best things he’s discovered being a newbie to the area and the places he loves to share with his relatives when they are visiting.
Question: How long have you been in San Francisco and what lead you to living in the city? Answer: I’m relatively new to the city — two years to be exact, but I dreamt of living in NorCal for 20 years. With a fantastic opportunity at ONE Mission Bay coupled with a unique moment in the history of SF, specifically with how technology businesses are positively transforming the Bay Area and our world, the timing was just right.
Question: What’s one thing residents can look forward to living at ONE Mission Bay? Answer: Residents will enjoy some of the sunniest and warmest weather in SF. They have access to great large parks, marinas, bay views and proximity to some of the best technology businesses in the world. Super convenience to Caltrain, Muni, ferry service and highways.
Question: What are the best things to do in SF when relatives are in town? Answer: I enjoy the phenomenal and diverse options San Francisco offers every week. Here are a few of my favorites broken down:
- Dinner: Izakaya Sozai bites and locally brewed beers in the Inner Sunset. Farm to table Italian in the Mission, topping it off with amazing margaritas rooftop at El Techo.
- Art: I love walking the sculpture garden at the MOMA which includes my favorite Alexander Calder stabiles. The de Young Museum for the Summer of Love exhibit. Thursday nights at the Academy of Sciences for their themed programs.
- Live Entertainment: Drag shows in South of Market at Oasis, Caribbean Salsa at El Rio Sundays, jazz night Thursdays at Blush! wine bar.
- Parks: The butterfly garden at the Conservatory of Flowers in our beautiful Golden Gate park.
- Bay Area: Napa and Sonoma are just an hour’s drive. It feels like Tuscany in the summer.
