SPUR Lunchtime Forum: Next up for Pier 70: Rehabilitating historic waterfront buildings

From SPUR:
Pier 70’s 20th Street is lined with grand historic structures: the Union Iron Works Machine Shop, built in 1885, Union Iron Works Offices (1896), PowerHouse (1912), and at the corner of 20th and Illinois, the Bethlehem Steel Office Building (1917). The Port of San Francisco is seeking interested partners to rehabilitate and reinvent this historic waterfront corridor. Initiated in 2007, the City’s master plan seeks to adaptively reuse the unique historic architectural resources of Pier 70 and integrate new development, shoreline open space and public amenities with the existing ship repair operations. Project Managers Kathleen Diohep and Lynda Swanson will discuss this exciting opportunity, and the role of historic buildings in shaping the Pier 70 master plan.

DC to Build a 12-Block Shared Space Neighborhood on the Potomac

|
Earlier this month, Streetsblog went on a streak about “shared space” — the idea that some streets can work better when, instead of using curbs and traffic signals to separate users, pedestrians get priority using subtle but effective visual cues. We interviewed a key shared space messenger, Ben Hamilton-Baillie; we showed off built examples in Pittsburgh and Batavia, Illinois; and we […]
