Frederick comes through with the skinny on the potential development of AT&T’s parking lot A (as well as parcels to the north) and a meeting this afternoon concerning the future of San Francisco’s cruise ship terminal:
“[Yesterday], April 18, 2007, the Port of SF announced plans to consider development of Seawall Lot 337 (Parking Lot A, south of Pac Bell Park). The proposals included a mixture of Residential housing, office, hotel, recreation, parking and retail.
This same change in the zoning of “Seawall” parcels that the Port controls could affect the future use of Port parking lots north of Pac Bell Park, all the way to Pier 35. All of these parcels, if the legislation as proposed is approved in the State legislature, could include housing (market rate or other types of hosing). This would affect supply of hosing in the central and north waterfront for years to come.
Also, [today], April 19th the Port is considering improving Piers 35 and 27 to possibly replace Piers 30-32 as the future Primary Cruise Terminals for the City. The meeting is open to the public at Pier 1, 3 to 6 PM. The “Primary Pier” selection is scheduled for 5:30 to 5:45 PM.”
UPDATE: Frederick expands on why, “if you are a developer or interested in new housing near or next to the SF waterfront,” you should really consider attending “the upcoming Port meetings regarding the Seawall lot future uses.”
UPDATE (4/20): And Frederick keeps us all “plugged in” by reporting back on yesterday’s port meeting: “The net of that meeting was that the cost to develop two 1,000 ft long piers at Piers 30-32 was $150M, while two 1,000 ft long Piers at 27 would be $35M to $50M.”
