Promise is building in long-neglected SF shipyard site

Forget those downtown towers clambering toward the heavens. The biggest change to San Francisco’s landscape is taking place 5 miles away - easy to miss unless you know where to look.

Residential landings line new hillside roads. A neighborhood green spills down toward the bay. Balconies with chairs and potted plants look out at concrete being poured and walls being framed. One residential block is adorned with a four-story vegetated wall.

The setting is the former Hunters Point Naval Shipyard, where the first batch of 208 condominiums and apartments forms the figurative beachhead for what eventually will be a 437-acre extension of the Bayview neighborhood. What’s gone up so far has promising elements, including the most inviting park the city has seen in years. There’s also real promise downhill, where one of England’s leading architects is rethinking how the huge project should meet the bay.
