The master plans are so old, they're incompatible with today's modern technology!

The IM Pei concept didn't touch Lot A/Mission Rock.

A portion of "Mission Rock", which includes Sea Wall Lot 337, was included in the Mission Bay plan.

"Through that public-private planning effort, the City approved a plan and development agreement with Catellus in 1991.1 The mixed residential/commercial, low-to-mid-rise development program in the 1991 Mission Bay Plan included a 68 acre, integrated network of public open spaces. The Mission Bay open space program included 12 acres on SWL 337, extending north to the south shore of China Basin Channel. This public open space was named Mission Point Park, and was envisioned to take advantage of its shoreline setting, making the edge of China Basin, a previously inaccessible vantage point, a place where waves, tides and wildlife could be observed. During the planning process, there was a great deal of debate over how this park should be programmed. Due to its shoreline location, there was a strong constituency to create a new tidal wetlands, while other advocates demanded the creation of new play fields. Either way, the park would require a design that was compatible with keeping the eastern six acres of SWL 337 in industrial and maritime support use, so designated in the Mission Bay Plan to enable the Port to protect the potential for return of cargo terminal operations at Piers 48 and 50. Ultimately, Mission Point Park was approved for use as playfields."

earliest version of the current plan seems to be 2008

Then there was the decades long process involving the Giants ballpark. I forget how many iterations that involved.

I guess I will still post mine, although homebucket's shot is a better angle









(the Giants game had just ended when I was by there yesterday)

My bad, timbad. Didn't mean to rain on your parade! But thanks for posting yours anyway. More angles are always welcome! Yours has the skyline and ballpark as a nice backdrop. If you zoom in, you might even see me.

Can't be bad if you were tooting for the Giants.

By the way, I love that little sailboat in the very foreground of your photo.

Foundation pour happening today for the big residential project along 4th street (where the second crane is).

Look for steel going up soon!

It looks like this is just 1 floor away from being topped off.



So much faster than the construction down in San Jose...

Ah, okay, so this is the lighter sand-colored building in that rendering. And is the foundation work currently underway for the residential tower the reddish brick one to the left?

I think that's in Phase II, when more of the existing expanse of parking gets built on. I seem to recall a large parking garage at the southern end, facing Mission Rock St. I'm sure if you scroll back you'll find it.
