Massive Potrero Power Plant Project Refined Slated for Approval

The refined plans, development agreement and final Environmental Impact Report (EIR) for the the proposed redevelopment of the 29-acre Potrero Power Plant site could be approved and certified by San Francisco’s Planning Commission in two weeks time, clearing the way for San Francisco’s Board of Supervisors to re-zone and raise the height limit for the site for development up to 240 feet in height, which is down from 300 feet in height as originally proposed.

The massive development is now slated to be built in six phases over the course of 16 years, “depending on market conditions,” and would yield a total of 2,600 residential units along with 1.8 million square feet of commercial space, including 100,000 square feet of retail with a commercial corridor on Humboldt Street; 800,000 square feet of office space (which is up from 600,000 as originally proposed); 650,000 square feet of Research & Development space; 35,000 square feet of Production, Distribution and Repair (“PDR”) space; and a 240,000-square-foot, 250-room waterfront hotel, along with 25,000 square feet of entertainment/assembly space, 50,000 square feet of community space and off-street parking for around 2,700 cars (and 1,900 bikes).

In addition, the development would yield nearly 7 acres of new publicly accessible open space, including a 1.2-acre “Power Station Park,” a 0.6-acre “Stack Plaza” and a 3-acre waterfront park connected to the neighboring Pier 70 Shoreline Park and Bay Trail.
