Developer: Forest City
About: Aug 2017: “The San Francisco Planning Commission unanimously approved a 28-acre mixed-use development at Pier 70 on Thursday that could create as many as 2,150 new homes and millions of square feet of commercial space east of Dogpatch.”
“Forest City began work on the Pier 70 project in 2011. Over the past six years, we have drawn from the area’s impressive history, the Dogpatch neighborhood’s unique culture, and the site’s expansive waterfront location to prepare a conceptual plan and design for the future of Pier 70. Over thousands of hours with community members and interested stakeholders, we have come to understand the community’s vision for this place, and we have endeavored to prepare a plan that delivers on the promise of Pier 70.”
“This part of the waterfront will become an asset to the surrounding community by blending together a variety of uses: arts & creative spaces, housing across the spectrum of affordability, light-manufacturing, local retail, nine acres of waterfront parks. With a prescriptive set of design standards and guidelines, all future buildings will be carefully designed to prevent any new construction that may be incompatible or out of scale with the historic district. Beyond (or below) new building and neighborhood-focused uses, the site will have more than $150 Million in infrastructure improvements, including all new utilities, streets, geotechnical and seismic improvements. All towards a local, neighborhood-centric waterfront.”
“Forest City’s project is one of three located on the pier, including the Port of San Francisco’s Crane Cove Park and redevelopment of several historic office and industrial buildings by Orton Development. BAE Systems runs a ship repair facility at Pier 70.”
