Field Trip: Pier 70 Open House & Master Plan public forum

Over the last year, Forest City (creators of the 5M Project) has been working on a project to rebuild a 28 acre section of the eastern waterfront of SF - due east of the Dogpatch - called Pier 70. You may be familiar with some of the great old brick buildings and history of the area, but most of the site is closed off, so you can't really access the water.

The developers recently finished a "Master Plan" for the future of the site and are doing a tour and open house on May 1st to discuss the details and hear what we think - and the mixed-use project does include residential elements, let's see if they make any sense for cohousing and if there may be an opportunity for us to be involved and/or influence the design. Note that 20% of the planned homes will be permanently affordable thanks to SF's inclusionary zoning, so perhaps there's an opportunity for us to make sure the affordable units are mixed in with others in order to create the mixed-income community of our dreams.

This is also relevant for us to study the process of how large areas of the city get researched, planned, and rebuilt - which we may be involved in for another neighborhood, if not this one.

Cohousing Coach Betsy Morris (Cohousing California regional co-organizer) and some other East Bay Cohousing members may join us.

    Sorry I didn't meet you folks, as I said the traffic was horrid. I would like to know what your vision is. Were you thinking of rent lofts?
    I am an artist and I would enjoy that space.

    Good to see the regulars and meet some of you Meetup folks for the first time. Very good presentation. Really enjoyed hearing about the vision and plans for this new San Francisco waterfront neighborhood. Developer, Forest City, is aspiring to innovate. We are curious to explore to see if they are open to partner on a coho component.

    Sorry I was not there. I calendared the event incorrectly and actually showed up at the Noonan Building yesterday afternoon instead of today. Could not make it today because of a prior commitment. Sounds like it was informative...

      Susan, did you sign up via EventBrite with Forest City using the link on the MeetUp? If so, you're all set. If not, send me a private message.

    How do I get a ticket??

    April 29, 2013

    • Raines C.

      Marge, the event is sold out, but check your email.

      April 30, 2013

  • Raines C.

    OK, now it is officially "sold out." If anyone who already RSVPd here did NOT get a ticket already through the Forest City EventBrite link, contact me ASAP.

  • Marge H.

    Just wondered if seniors are going to be involved????

    April 29, 2013

    • Raines C.

      Marge, the event is most definitely for all ages, and given the housing market demographics, I'd be surprised if they weren't creating homes designed for Aging in Place. As for making sure that it contains elements for Aging in Community, co-creating that culture is up to us!
