Land Use AlternativesMost cities have only a limited amount of space in which to accommodate growth and change, a condition that nearly inevitably leads to competition among land uses. This is especially true in a geographically constrained and largely built-out city such as San Francisco. In particular, San Francisco's industrial areas have recently seen tremendous pressure from the super-charged housing and office markets generated by the high-tech boom - and the Central Waterfront is no exception. In fact, other pressures are being brought to bear on the Central Waterfront, including development of Mission Bay immediately to the north, and the construction of Muni's 3rd Street Light Rail extension.

This crescendo of pressures has led to a watershed moment in the evolution of the Central Waterfront. The debate surrounding the area's future revolves around whether to allow construction of significant amounts of new housing, protect and foster existing industries, or both. The future of the area is very much an open question. This Central Waterfront Better Neighborhoods 2002 process is exploring these questions and evaluating several alternative land use futures for the area.
