Seawall Lot 337

Not much time until this event on Tuesday, but here’s the deal: Seawall Lot 337 is the 16-acre stretch of land immediately south of the San Francisco Giants’ ballpark, soon to be developed into a destination with shops, parks, entertainment, arts, housing and office building . The Chronicle just published this article about it.

Four teams have submitted plans to the Port of San Francisco in February to develop it: only 1 (Kenwood Investments) is authentically looking out for the sustainability of arts and culture, and as of last week, is just barely in the lead with its proposal. The Giants and their partners aren’t far behind, though: if you’re able to turn out this Tuesday to support ArtFirst SF (aka the Kenwood proposal), please do so!
While I don’t know all the details yet, I’m planning on showing up to learn more, and to support ArtFirstSF. Hello. The Giants don’t need more money, or more control of the city. And the Kenwood proposal actually provides for artists. And I’m tired of being a San Francisco-born artist who can’t afford to live in her own city of birth: the Kenwood proposal, as I understand it presently, might allow folks like me the opportunity to do so, among many other things. We’ll see what happens…
