And, as runners wind their way past Mission St. they will begin to see the Mission’s more industrial roots mixed with the construction of large scale condominiums. At Harrison & 16th, the large brick building that used to house high volume newspaper printing presses in industrial times is now the home of the infamous “Dandelion Chocolate Factory“.
