What happened to Uptown at the Falls?
The Uptown at Falls Park project is a massive redevelopment of several blocks between Main and Phillips avenues and Second and Fifth streets announced in 2006 and touted as a vital step in reinvigorating the downtown area into a residential, shopping and entertainment district. Included in the development at the time as possible tenants were a 12-story hotel and a series of buildings that would include residential units, office and retail space, and entertainment venues such as restaurants and a small movie theater.
Oh, but that’s not what it will be;
An affordable senior housing complex could be the next project in the Uptown at Falls Park development and a step toward Mayor Mike Huether’s priority for further redevelopment in the downtown area and around Falls Park.
Funny how plans change when the movers and shakers in SF realize there are not movers or shakers in SF.
