Wonder what money and people are behind this development pressure

Sir Paul

I still believe this is a perfect site for housing.Failing that it would be a very desirable site for a rec/community center.


Icrito, this has been working it's way through the system for awhile now. The State Lands Commission had a meeting at the rec center almost a year ago, to develop an idea of what to do with it. They want it to generate some income to the State but they have specific guidelines of what can and cannot go there. Residential of any kind is NOT an option. It has to be something that is open to all residents. so housing does not qualify. A hotel does as anyone can book a room or walk in the lobby.. There words,not mine. So no development pressure except a desire to lease it to generate income.

Just Visiting

Even the "housing advocates" recognize the bay front is not the right place for housing. It's not just a state lands issue; it's a bay front issue.


@laura Thanks for info. Maybe a 5 Star Luxury Hotel would be nice by Four Seasons, Trump, Ritz, or other name. I have contacts from school at all three of these companies. I will call them today to see if they are interested.
