Ambitious Plan for San Francisco's Treasure Island

Plans for a re-envisioned Treasure Island are reaching the approval stage. John King takes a close look at the ambitious plan, which includes lots of protected open space and a 650 ft. tower.

More than 7,000 housing units are included in the plan, with a significant amount of density.

John King writes, "The developed area would be confined to a thick L along the island's western and southern edges, with a commercial district at the hinge and a new ferry terminal offering a straight shot to the Ferry Building. The rest of the island would become protected open space, except for 37 acres in the middle managed by the Treasure Island Job Corps, a federal training program."
