Giants’ Development Pushed Back, Anchor Dropped from Plans

The San Francisco Giants have pushed back the anticipated ground breaking for the first phase of their proposed Mission Rock Development to rise on AT&T Park’s Parking Lot A to “as early as 2019” or “as late as 2027.”

And the Giants’ proposed redevelopment of Pier 48, upon which Anchor Brewing was anticipated but not guaranteed to expand, has been formally dropped from the plans which are slated to be presented to the San Francisco Bay Conservation & Development Commission’s Design Review Board next week.

At full build-out, which is envisioned to occur over four phases with the final phase now anticipated to commence “as early as 2025” or “as late as 2047,” the Giants’ Mission Rock development would result in 1.4 million square feet of office and retail/restaurant space and 1,500 units of rental housing in buildings rising up to 240 feet in height, with 3,100 parking spaces and nearly 8 acres of open space and parks.

While no longer part of the official project, the redevelopment of Pier 48 and 48 ½ may still occur “at some future date.” And of course, the projected timing for the development as proposed is still subject to change “based on market conditions and other factors.”
