New development in SF with 100's to 1,000's of new houses coming soon

Candlestick demolition set for early 2014: 49ers stadium facing implosion -- February 6, 2013

It seems that the Candlestick demolition schedule was debated for quite some time, and there was talk of letting the stadium sit empty for a while as development plans were put together. Instead, the city is moving ahead with the stadium demolition. The San Francisco 49ers will play the 2013 season at Candlestick Park, and the stadium will be imploded after the last home game of the season.

mile high shot... several 100s SFH or maybe 1000 condos/ths very possible. just like the developments near SF Giants Ball Park.

Are they ever going to develop Treasure Island or the old Oakland Army Base?

There were rumors once of Alcatraz being turned into a mixed-use development.

It took almost 20 years to break ground on the new Wilder subdivision in Orinda, CA.

I'm not holding my breath. "Soon" might mean 2023.

No way would they build sfh on that property. They'll build buildings as tall as code allows full of million dollar apartments.

1000 homes rounds to zero in the bay area... And, they aint' going to give them away!

I agree. This is a wishful thinker's article.

What's Behind San Francisco's Sudden Building Boom? (Dec 20, 2012)

that’s when the tower cranes started to appear, now about two-dozen of them around town hovering above both public and private new developments. By SPUR’s count, construction has begun this year on more than 4,220 new housing units. An old furniture store is being rehabbed into a million square feet of commercial space. An old data warehouse is converting into a 250,000 square-foot office for the financial services tech company Square.

Clearly .. we saw a large boom in construction since 1995..

or even down south with Moffet Field.. pretty large even compared to Foster City.

frankly, you can make a whole new city out the runway and land.

It's 1800 unit's a year. Which is laughably low. That's not a construction boom, that's construction restriction in a city of 800K in a metro area of 8M.

8M doing what ? after a while you realize.. nice place to visit, not a place to live in.

Innovating. DUH.

Landlord'ing and web advertising are totally new phenomena that will revolutionize the world if you invest all of your money in them. You can only find these innovative occupations in the SFBA, where all children are born special.

yes.. very special.. spoken and worshiped about by the monks of Tibet for the next several millennium to come and then some.

if only someone could make an air freshener large enough to kill off that stench..

While no doubt Candlestick point will be home of future 5 story condos,

Why only 5 stories high?
