SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS)— The future of Piers 30 to 32 in San Francisco is sinking and it’s going to take a massive life saver to rescue it.
Just how expensive? We’re talking $44 million just to keep the piers up. It’ll probably be another $100 million if you wanted to do even more. If you don’t know, these are the vastly expansive and empty piers that can be seen coming into the city from northbound I-80. They sit just south of the Bay Bridge where Bryant Street meets the Embarcadero
It was to be the home of the America’s Cup and later the site of the proposed Golden State Warriors’ arena, but neither of those ideas panned out. It had even been pitched as one of the last-ditch effort ideas for the Lucas Museum. Of course that didn’t work out either as the filmmaker decided to go with Chicago.
