Over the past 2 years, Central Waterfront and Dogpatch residents have helped the Planning Department and our partners prioritize capital projects for funding. Join us at an upcoming event to share your feedback on our current designs.
Several major mixed-use development projects slated for SF's southern bayfront hit significant milestones this fall. Forest City won final approvals from the SF Board of Supervisors for Pier 70, a 28-acre redevelopment in the Dogpatch. The Giants’ 28-acre Mission Rock mixed-use development near AT&T Park was approved by the Planning Commission and heads to the Port Commission next. BUILD's India Basin, a 38-acre project further south along the bayfront, is anticipated to get approvals in the first quarter of 2018. Together these projects could create up to 4.25 million square feet of commercial office and retail, nearly 5,000 housing units, many of them affordable, and 50 acres of parks and open space. Meanwhile, environmental review has kicked off for the former Potrero Power Plant redevelopment proposed by Meg Whitman and Associate Capital. And the Warriors’ Chase Center has reached 25 percent completion.

After a 10-year wait, SFHAC Member Forest City Realty Trust saw their Pier 70 waterfront project approved by the Board of Supervisors. After a deal was struck with the community, a broad coalition appears to be behind the project, and SFHAC is excited to see it move forward. Read about it here. www.sfgate.com/bayarea/article...
The owners of the dormant Potrero Power Plant have proposed one of the largest mixed-use projects in San Francisco history. Associate Capital filed plans to build up to 5.3 million square feet at the former power plant at 1201 Illinois St.
The proposal includes 20 buildings with 2,682 residential units, a 220-room hotel, 597,723 square feet of office space, 645,738 square feet of lab space and 107,439 square feet of retail. The project would include 2,622 parking spaces, totaling nearly 1 million square feet.
"This is a site that has been privately held and used for industrial purposes for a century and a half. The community has been cut off from the waterfront at this location. We're excited about reconnecting the neighborhood with the waterfront edge," said P.J. Johnston, an Associate Capital spokesman.
Last week, Brooke Ray Rivera of Build Public spoke to SFHAC's Regulatory Committee about the creative public-private partnerships her organization helps implement to create beautiful, active, sustainable community-owned spaces. Read Corey Smith's recap of the Build Public model used to create spaces like the newly finished Dogpatch Arts Plaza here:

Please Join Us at one of our Public Open Houses & Provide input on plans to improve neighborhood parking.
The Dogpatch and surrounding area has been growing and changing rapidly, with big developments on the horizon. Because parking regulations have not caught up with the growth, daytime parking can be very scarce, leading to circling, congestion and frustration from residents, local businesses and visitors. The Dogpatch Parking Management Project is an effort to better manage parking in the neighborhood.
At two community open houses, the SFMTA is seeking public feedback on parking management proposals developed by the SFMTA with input from a working group of community representatives. The parking proposal include a combination of permit parking, time-limited parking and paid parking on blocks where needed.
Please join us on either:
Saturday, September 16, Noon to 2 pm @ 1050 26th Street
Tuesday, September 19, 6:30 to 8:30 pm @ 1275 Minnesota Street
