SPUR Lunchtime Forum: Resuscitating Pier 70

"The Port of San Francisco has released a draft of the Pier 70 Preferred Master Plan, the result of a two-year community planning process. The plan balances the competing goals for the site; besides the retention of ship repair, it would implement a National Register Historic District and reuse of some historic buildings, open waterfront spaces, infill development sensitive to the setting, the building of new infrastructure, and remediation to improve environmental quality. With David Beaupre and Kathleen Diohep from the Port of San Francisco."
