Pier 70 is a 69-acre redevelopment district located in San Francisco’s Central Waterfront area. Utilized for over 150 years as a ship building and repair site, Pier 70 received designation as a National Historic District due to its role in industrializing the Western United States, its contribution to US military war efforts, and the architectural and engineering feats within its geography.
In 2012, the Port of San Francisco partnered with Orton Development, Inc. (ODI) to develop the 20th Street Historic Buildings, which were built between 1885 and 1941.
With highly specialized building codes applying to the preservation of these historic structures, ODI contracted stok to perform LEED certification analysis and CALGreen Commissioning for historical buildings 101, 104, 113, 114, 115 and 116 — a total of 244,841 sq. ft.
In 2014, San Francisco voters approved the Proposition F ballot measure in support of revitalizing the Pier 70 waterfront area adjacent to the historic buildings. This project, by developer Forest City, combined with Orton Development’s historic building renovations will transform Pier 70 into a unique destination and home for San Francisco visitors and residents.
