Cranes remained the official city bird of San Francisco in 2016. SoMa and Yerba Buena played host to the biggest construction projects (Central Subway and 181 Fremont, just to name two), but other areas of the city also felt much-needed growing pains.
And 2017 promises to add even more to the city’s skyline. Additional market-rate housing will pop up around the city. The navy base at Hunters Point will undergo a major transformation, with London-based architect David Adjaye signed on as master planner for the Shipyard’s phase two.
The impending 18,500-seat Chase Center in Mission Bay, which will play home to the Golden State Warriors, should break ground any moment now. What with AT&T Park right up the street, it will create a major-league sports corridor in the area.
What about you, Curbed readers? What do you hope for as development moves forward in San Francisco? Inventive and necessary ideas like modular housing for the homeless and or more market-rate? Condos with innovative and creative designs? Perhaps a more focused, clearly communicated transit growth plan? More Saitowitz? Or maybe something big, something wild we haven’t thought of yet.
Let us know what you want to see come 2017.
