1968 NORTHERN WATERFRONT DEVELOPMENT PLANS for SAN FRANCISCO w/ MAPS & PHOTOS
NORTHERN WATERFRONT PLAN.
Produced by John S. Bolles Associates for the City Planning Commission of the City in cooperation with the San Francisco Port Authority, 1968.
From the Introduction: "The City of San Francisco and the San Francisco Port Authority have determined that it is essential at this time to ensure full use of its waterfront in a manner consistent with the waterfront's position as a unique and irreplaceable resource of not only the City but the entire Bay Area.
The purpose of the Northern Waterfront Plan is to guide future development in all areas on and contiguous to the harbor in a manner consistent with the interests of San Francisco. The plan must provide mechanisms and guidelines whereby public and private interests can work together to fulfill the social, economic and physical objectives with maximum benefit for all.
The challenges posed by this study have been to integrate an authentic maritime atmosphere into the character and fabric of the City, and to capture in a strong and positive manner the unique opportunities for imaginative and dramatic development of San Francisco's waterfront."
Hardcovers, no dustjacket as issued, 11x14 inches oblong, 146 pages.
Contains 85 ILLUSTRATIONS including maps, drawings, photos and architectural renderings.
GOOD condition, the covers are rubbed and scraped but still solid and doing their job well, there is some wear and a small hole to the front free endpaper, some of the inner hinges are cracked and a bit weak but still holding (this book is known for its weak glue binding), otherwise the inner pages are bright, clean, clear and unmarked.
This is the plan that guided the transformation of San Francisco's Northern Waterfront from the ugly, elevated freeway, desolate area that it was, into the techie mecca of expensive lofts, sailboats, and foodie playgrounds, that it is today.
