The Board of Supervisors will vote Tuesday on the Hunters Point Shipyard redevelopment. The 720 acres of waterfront property is hoped to one day be home to 10,500 residential units, 320 acres of parks and open space and 700,000 square feet of retail and entertainment space. The plan also includes a possible new 49ers football stadium should the team’s plans to relocate to Santa Clara fall apart.
It takes six votes to approve the development. Concerns about cleanup of the polluted soil continue to plague the project, while city officials are adamant the area will be safe.
Challenges to realizing the development include Lennar, the developer in talks with the city to do the work, being able to finance the project.
