City Hall approves massive Pier 70 development

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.

To quote a former forumer here... just build it!

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?

Does anyone have a formal update on the project timeline for Crane Cove Park? It seems to have stalled and I can't recall a recent update.

timbad Sep 1, 2018 6:04 AM

restoration of some of the Core Buildings is ongoing... at one point the sign for Restoration Hardware (its future tenant, I think) draped across the one on the right said 'Summer 2018'. think it's been taken down.

... Pier 70, where the developer Forest City is in the process of developing a mixed-use project with at least 1,600 homes, 9 acres of parkland and more than 1 million square feet of commercial space.

The object that had to be moved was the steel frame of Building 15, one of the historic structures that will be mixed in with new construction at the old shipyard. The frame will be a decorative centerpiece of the new neighborhood, the gateway of an extended 22nd Street that will connect Dogpatch to the waterfront.

At 153.5 tons, the frame isn’t something that could be moved easily; ...

Finally they decided that the most efficient approach — and the one most likely to allow it to retain its historic integrity — was to simply roll it 200 feet to the south and leave it there during the 18 months it will take to build 22nd Street.

...

In its previous life, during the dark days of World War II, Pier 70’s Building 15 was ... a place steel panels of ship hulls were stored before being rolled out to the slipway for assemblage.

But in the new vision for the mixed-use development at Pier 70, the building’s massive steel frame will play a leading role, as pedestrians, cyclists and motorists traveling to and from the pier will pass through it.

...

Where Building 15 stood Wednesday morning, workers will stack between five and 10 feet of new soil before they start building structures, a necessary upgrade to account for expected sea level rise over the next decades.

Development does not stop in San Francisco. First Mission Bay, the new public transit tunneling and infrastructure, skyscrapers, now an entirely new neighborhood. Good news for housing.

I'm always excited to catch some progress at Pier 70 but it moves sooooo slowly.

A couple of shots of the historic core at its edge:

The backside looks about the same as it did in Timbad's last post in August, but with more work on the buildings to the left.

TMG and partner jump into waterfront megaproject, will propose over 200 units
By Fiona Kelliher – Real estate reporter, San Francisco Business Times
May 9, 2019, 2:41pm PDT Updated May 9, 2019, 8:21pm EDT

In February, (TMG Partners and Presidio Bay Ventures) acquired a 1.5-acre site called Parcel K North, on the corner of Illinois and 20th streets, with the goal of building up around 250 units there.

The team's project could be among the first residential developments to break ground, said Christine Maher, the port’s development project manager for Pier 70. Next week, the company will put forth an official proposal for the site.

Under the master plan, the developers can propose up to about 260,000 square feet of residential space, along with about 13,000 square feet of retail and commercial space. That would translate to somewhere between 240 and 270 condos.

At the same time, Brookfield has approvals for a 275-unit rental building and is also moving ahead on Building 12, a public marketplace that will host makers and manufacturers. The company plans to break ground on those sites by the end of the year, plus three more buildings in 2020. Brookfield could ultimately build out thousands of units over its parcels; the overall Pier 70 plan calls for up to 3,000 units, of which Brookfield will complete the majority . . . .

A reminder of the overall Pier 70 layout (from above). This project, at Illinois and 20th, is in the upper left corner.

and back the other way

the one on the corner of Illinois, which I think is still to be occupied by Restoration Hardware, has at least had some new windows installed

There are some beautiful old buildings there--it could be a really interesting neighborhood if done thoughtfully.
