Port of San Francisco undergoing massive hazmat cleanup
Published by John on
San Francisco: HAZARDOUS MATERIALS ABATEMENT – BUILDING 49, CRANES 14 & 30, PIER 70, PORT OF SAN FRANCISCO. The work will consist of abatement of hazardous materials and disposal of abatement waste; application of specified sealant on interior and exterior of Building 49; application of specified sealant to surfaces of the tower, boom, and cab of Crane 14 and/or 30 and two artifacts from historic shipbuilding operations; disposal of other specified equipment from historic shipbuilding operations.
Pier 70 is a Port of San Francisco site that is approximately 69-acres located in the City’s Central Waterfront, generally between Mariposa and 22nd Street, east of Illinois Street. This site has been identified as a future National Historic District due to its over 150-years of continuous operations in Ship Building and Repair, the role it has played in the industrialization of the Western United States, the war efforts and architectural and engineering feats.
The Port of San Francisco working with its regulatory partners and through an extensive community planning process recently completed a Pier 70 Preferred Master Plan. The Preferred Master Plan outlines an approach to rehabilitate historic resources, provide new shoreline open space, allow for new infill development, continue the historic ship repair operations and conduct environmental remediation and infrastructure improvements where required.
The Preferred Master Plan will be the framework used to solicit development partners to assist the Port in implementing the Plan vision.
