Good News For The DogpatchMay 1st, 2012
Home to our Hot Property of the week (the gorgeous new Millwheel development), the Dogpatch neighborhood is about to see improvements made to its Pier 70 area. Concepts for the long-awaited renovations are scheduled to be presented this summer. The plans will attempt to “create a hub of innovation on the city’s central waterfront,” according to the San Francisco Planning and Urban Research Association (SPUR), who will be hosting a lunchtime forum on May 23rd to discuss the project.
The San Francisco Port Department claims that, pending the updates, “Crane Cove is set to be one of the most celebrated new parks in the City … The completed park would include a variety of landscape and plaza areas, 1,000 feet of Bay shoreline opened, and views of the dry dock, skyline and Bay.”
The SF Chronicle envisioned an even more ambitious use of the space, suggesting it to George Lucas for his new digital media production facilities. “One of the buildings, originally occupied by Bethlehem Steel, was the location of a scene from Alfred Hitchcock’s “Vertigo” and still has a theater on its upper level,” claims the Chron.
