Giants’ Mission Rock project gets nod

Voters have paved the way for a mixed-use development on 28 acres of waterfront property just south of AT&T Park.

Proposition D, which raises the height limits from 90 to 190 feet for office and retail uses, and raise height limits from 120 to 240 feet for rental housing on up to 10 acres of the waterfront space, was given the green light on Tuesday, allowing the development proposed by the Giants to move forward.

The Mission Rock project includes 1,500 new rental apartments — 40 percent of which will be offered at below-market-rate — and eight acres of open space, as well as the rehabbing of historic Pier 48 to become the expanded home for Anchor Brewing.

The initiative was required to go before voters because of Proposition B, a measure passed in June 2014 that calls for voter approval of waterfront height-limit increases.
