After more than a decade of planning, the Giants’ Mission Rock project secured a round of city approvals on Thursday to build up to 1,600 homes with 40 percent of the units priced for low-and moderate-income households.
In addition, according to the San Francisco Examiner, Mission Rock will include 8 acres of open space, 1.4 million square feet of offices and roughly 244,800 square feet of retail and industrial spaces. The project also calls for the renovation of the adjacent Pier 48 bulkhead.
The Planning Commission unanimously voted to certify the environmental review of the project, among other approvals. The project will still need to go before the Board of Supervisors, Port Commission and state bodies.
But hey, this at least gets them to first base, and we say way to go! That massive parking lot south of the stadium couldn’t remain a parking lot forever.
