Forest City is proposing a large, mixed-use project that would involve the entire revitalization of Pier 70, which is currently derelict industrial land along San Francisco’s eastern waterfront. The project would include a mix of office, retail and open space, as well as a range of 1,000 to 2,000 homes. Forest City introduced a ballot measure, The Union Iron Works/Pier 70 Initiative, that asked the voters in November 2014 to allow their project to exceed the existing limit of 40 feet and build up to 90 feet in certain parts of the site. This measure was required as the result of Prop B, the Waterfront Height Limits Right to Vote Act, passing in June 2014. Forest City’s measure passed with overwhelming support.
