A spot of good news amidst all the stories of stopped construction projects and failed developments: Lennar's plans for Hunter's Point are continuing full speed ahead -- which basically means the Navy is still working hard to clean all the radioactive waste out of the former superfund site to make way for housing and shopping. Multi-millions more in federal funding for the last of the ditch-digging and iron-pumping has reportedly been secured, and two more parcels, encompassing 100 acres (some for housing, most for the 49ers), are set to be decontaminated in time for initial development before the year is out. But that still leaves construction to begin there in 2011 at the earliest -- just in time for economic recovery?
