Decommissioned in 2006 and since dismantled, the environmental cleanup of the 31-acre Hunters Point Power Plant site, a site which was operational for 75 years, is nearly complete.
The City’s draft India Basin Shoreline Plan had envisioned an “Emerging Technologies Employment District,” with office space, a conference center, hotel and retail rising upon much of PG&E’s former power plant site and housing on the other side of Evans and Hunters Point Boulevard.
But that plan was drafted nearly a decade ago.
Over the past three years, over 50 community events and “activations” have been held on the site as part of PG&E’s NOW Hunters Point program, activations intended to engage the community and help guide the future programming and design for the site.
And tomorrow, August 10, San Francisco’s Planning Department will launch the FUTURE Hunters Point project with a public workshop at Our Lady of Lordes Church (410 Hawes Street) from 6 to 7:30 pm.
“FUTURE Hunters Point will help inspire the transformation of the 31 acre site of the former power plant into a vibrant new addition to the existing community, with potential for additional housing, open and recreation space, as well as convenient commercial uses that will foster a pedestrian-friendly, ecologically progressive community that will be a benefit to the neighborhood and the city as a whole.”
And yes, the 15-acre India Basin parcel to the southeast of the power plant site, on the other side of India Basin Shoreline Park, is the 700 Innes Avenue site upon which Build Inc. is planning to build up to
900 1,240 homes, 1,800 parking spaces and 196,000 square feet of commercial space:
We’ll keep you posted and plugged-in as the plans progress.
