Mayor Lee Announces Release of City’s Five-Year Financial Plan

Mayor Edwin M. Lee joined Supervisor Malia Cohen and City agencies today to sign legislation that will transform Pier 70 by creating thousands of news homes and adding parks, community centers, small businesses and industrial and creative art spaces to a previously underserved area.

“To address the state and region’s ongoing housing crisis, we must be innovative and ambitious about creating housing opportunities, and Pier 70 is a result of that bold planning,” said Mayor Lee. “This project will provide affordable homes for our families, residents and local workforce, and support a diverse range of local businesses and artists. We are taking an underused and neglected part of our City and changing it into a vibrant community that everyone in San Francisco can enjoy.”
