Pier 6/7, Walsh Bay

Even if this luxury condominium building were built on land, it—and the Walsh Bay revitalization going on around it—would be marked as a special development. That the environmentally aware residential structure incorporating both car parking and boat slips was built over water marks it as extraordinary and innovative. Imagine a 200-by-24-meter (656×79 ft.), seven-story multifamily building atop the typical below-grade parking towed out to the harbor and anchored on pilings—a fair approximation of Pier 6/7’s concept.
