Here's a waterfront development that I don't think has been really discussed and will be a great addition to the bayfront:

New Summer Pops bayfront venue would seat 2x more people

A new final environmental report describes a shell-like structure with aluminum bones and a plastic skin that would perch at the tip of Embarcadero Marina Park South, projecting music toward an audience of up to 10,000 seated on a grassy slope.

....

About 6,000 cubic yards of soil would be graded to create a slope for main audience seating, which would be removable chairs.

That 2.3-acre slope of lawn is expected to be made of synthetic turf — the first allowed use of “fake grass” by the Port of San Diego. It is considered an environmentally friendly choice, officials said.

The project would bring the loss of 61 trees on the site, but also new public bathrooms, renovated basketball courts and a public viewing deck on the back side of the stage that some have dubbed the “Sunset Steps.”

Four new public bathrooms would remain open at all times, and 64 new stalls would be available for performance patrons.

Most of the site would be open to the public when events are not being held. The exception would be the stage and back-of-house facilities, box office and food pavilions, which would be partially surrounded by an 8-foot fence.
