|A crowd of about 200 showed up at Pier 70 last night.|
"Pier 70" comprises 69 acres from Mariposa to 22nd St and east of Illinois. It maintains 15 acres for shipbuilding, the rest for development. The historic core is comprised of seven buildings that will be retained for retail housing, and offices.
Throughout, although they can't save every building, developers have realized the need to work to maintain and recreate many of the the views that have been part of the site since WWII.
More background on the project at Bayview Footprints.
|Sight lines, like the one down the southern side of Building 12, will be retained as much as possible in the new development|
|Some historic buildings will be preserved, while others will need to go.|
|Though the dry-dock isn't part of the redevelopment area, the views that Pier 70 afford of it are awesome.|
|Views across the Bay will be a major feature of Pier 70 as it connects to the Blue Greenway|
