Revitalizing A San Francisco Port

The Port of San Francisco is considering plans to redevelop Port 70, one of the last working sections of the city's waterfront.

The master plan has been in the works for the past two years, and the Port hopes to attract developers now.

Lydia Lee writes, "Because of the working shipyard, the plan for the rest of the site calls for commercial and light industrial uses, but no residential. The port also hopes to create a destination attraction. Among the 20 historic buildings in this adaptive reuse project, the architectural jewel is the 1886 Union Iron Works Machine Shop. Built before steel framing, the brick-and-concrete building is seventy feet high and longer than a football field, with arched windows and no internal columns."
