Central Waterfront Concept Plan: Height Limits
Building height limits may be adjusted downward in some areas to protect the flexible building types where PDR and industrial activities are encouraged, and upwards in areas targeted for increased housing presence. The proposed height limit adjustments seek to create a more recognizable spine along Third Street, emphasizing the street's character as a major corridor. The scale of the historic Dogpatch neighborhood would be protected by lower height limits. Taller buildings would be permitted along 23rd Street, where new housing would be encouraged, stepping down eastward from the Caltrain station and elevated freeway to the water's edge at Warm Water Cove. Views from Potrero Hill would be not be affected.
