Hunters Point Shipyard Redevelopment Project

An interesting solution to an otherwise forgotten stretch of San Francisco land. Hats off to CCLR for putting this video together and sending it my way.

Center for Creative Land Recycling (CCLR), based out of San Francisco, is a nonprofit organization focused on creating sustainable communities and encouraging environmentally conscious and socially responsible development through the facilitation of land recycling.

T is for Transformation (T-Third Metro line service begins)

t-third-trilingualtn1.jpg“The T-THIRD Metro line will connect all of the Third Street neighborhoods to the full Muni Metro system, providing a vital link between the southeast sector of San Francisco and the rest of the City.”-SFMTA

What kind of effect could this have on properties that have otherwise been labeled as “too far out there”, or “not centrally located”?  What about the areas like Bayview, Hunters Point that have already seen an increase in “atypical” buyers for those areas? 

On a totally different note, we’ve also been told that Dago Mary’s will be closing at the end of April. So ride the new line and say goodbye to an old San Francisco restaurant, and cross your fingers the T-Third gets you there on time.

“But Lennar’s enterprising relationship with San Francisco City Hall — in which it has come to control much of the city’s remaining undeveloped land — gives the company unparalleled sway over how San Francisco will evolve, arguably rivaling the clout of the city’s elected leadership and the voters themselves.”


“‘They [Lennar] have agreed to invest hundreds of millions of dollars to create the infrastructure on these projects; the city couldn’t do that, nor can most other developers…'”

Git er done!

Developing Hunters Point


“The neglected areas of San Francisco’s southeast shore would be remade into a destination spot with a new football stadium, hundreds of acres of open space and thousands of new homes…”

“As it did for the San Francisco Giants’ waterfront ballpark, the city would contribute the land. Lennar (Lennar Corp. of Miami, a Fortune 500 company that is leading redevelopment efforts at former military bases on Treasure Island and Mare Island in Vallejo.) says it would contribute $100 million in cash and help finance the stadium’s infrastructure, including parking, roads, electrical lines, sewer pipes and water service.”

We’re all for it, and if it takes making the 49er stadium the rallying cry, then so be it.
