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

Phase 1 of Pier 70 is breaking ground:

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
