Pier 70 Project Moving Forward

The Pier 70 revitalization plan is pretty exciting (if you like revitalization plans, that is).  The $242 million plan will clear a major hurdle when it goes before the Port Commission at a Jan 24 special meeting.

According to SFGate,
The project, which is in its early stages, calls for putting shops, restaurants, small manufacturers and a bayfront park on a 28-acre site that is expected to include about 1,000 apartments and 2.2 million square feet of office space over 15 to 20 years of construction.
Forest City Development, a firm with properties across the country and whose San Francisco work includes revitalized properties in the Presidio, at the Westfield San Francisco Center, the Mission, and South Beach, has been given sole rights to develop the lands at Pier 70 and to integrate the development into the existing Dogpatch neighborhood.
The key is to "extend the Dogpatch neighborhood into the development," said Alexa Arena, a senior vice president for the developer. "We want to provide interior streets and alleys to create a neighborhood center."
