SAN FRANCISCO | Pier 70 Redevelopment | 35 acres: 3025 homes

Quote:
City Hall approves massive Pier 70 development
BY ADAM BRINKLOW
NOV 1, 2017, 10:04AM PDT

On Tuesday the San Francisco Board of Supervisors gave final approval to an enormous mixed-use development at Pier 70, kicking off a decade-long development process that will transform the Potrero Point area.

Altogether the redevelopment covers 35 acres and up to 3,025 new units of housing—the exact count is still in flux, with a low end of 1,645—and its roots stretch back a decade to a 2007 port plan . . . .

People in SF are living in RVs due to the massive housing shortage, and it takes 10 years to build maybe only 1600 homes?
The new mayor needs to make major changes to the development process.

Just as our former mayor was diligently trying to do.

San Francisco occupies less than half a percent of the Bay Area CSA, though, and that half a percent is already built up to the point where further building-up tends to achieve diminishing returns in terms of housing more people ... I would suggest that the major part of the Bay Area's housing crisis is in places on the Peninsula whose residents aren't allowing to densify concomitant with the residential needs of the region.

I think this is related to the rehab of the existing core buildings of the old Union Iron Works, a couple of which can be seen in the background

Adding this to the thread as well - thanks, timbad.

Phase 1 of Pier 70 is breaking ground:


Quote:
The transformation of Pier 70 from a long-shuttered maritime industrial complex to a lively mixed-use waterfront community will kick off Thursday at a groundbreaking with the normal mix of political speeches and platitudes.

But in this case the ceremony won’t be pure pageantry: When the elected officials leave with their gold-plated shovels, the real work will begin immediately, according to Jack Sylvan, senior vice president with developer Forest City.

With unprecedented speed, Forest City will mobilize workers this month on the first phase of one of the city’s most anticipated new developments: the 28-acre bayside enclave that will eventually include 1,100-2,150 residential units and more than 1 million square feet of commercial space, with local retail and services, arts and light industrial space, and a new waterfront arts facility.

Phase one will consist of four buildings, one park, new utilities, and two new streets connecting Dogpatch and the waterfront. Ten feet of dirt will be added to most of the site to protect against sea-level rise. The frame of one hulking steel building, Building 15, will be taken apart and then reassembled on its old site to provide a historic industrial gateway that folks walking or biking along 22nd Street will pass through on the way to a new bayfront park, to be called Slipway Commons.

Other phase one buildings include a 275,000-square-foot new office building; a new, 280-unit residential complex; and a 120-unit apartment building to be constructed within the shell of Building 2, a four-story concrete structure. Forest City is hoping to have all four buildings complete by the middle of 2021

There are businesses in there already. I saw Uber sweatshirts walking out. Can anyone confirm or deny?
