San Francisco Waterfront

March 17, 2017

Exciting news on the San Francisco waterfront.  Pier 29 has received the OK for the development of retail shops and hopefully a recreational area as well.  This pier has been vacant and unused for years and is a another step in the revitalization and beautification of the San Francisco waterfront area.  There will be shops – most selling homemade San Francisco goods – a wine bar, a coffee roastery, and a craft beer brewery.  We are looking forward to a wonderful addition to this exciting and beautiful area.
