Pier 70 (Q)uestions, (A)nswers, And Interested (D)evelopers
One of the questions developers have been asking: "How proscribed is the scale, location, and design of Slipway park as shown in the plan?" And the answer:
Slipways Park is part of the overall Master Plan, developed through the community planning process. Factors defining the park include maximizing public access to the waterfront, the Pier 70 public trust strategy, the setting and form of the former slipways and connections to the Building 12 complex, the anticipated new development and connections to/from the Mirant Power Plant site, and Blue Greenway/ Bay Trail alignment.
The final configuration of Slipways Park must address Master Plan open space goals, the final public trust re-alignment, and the infill development criteria. As shown in the Master Plan, Slipways Park is a major waterfront park of over four acres, plans for the Waterfront Site should include this scale of park.
Teams have until December 13 to throw their hard hats into the development ring.

The VA wants to move to Mission Bay from Fort Miley, but after Salesforce, most of the land is claimed. How about a hospital on this site?
