    San Francisco Chronicle: "A neighborhood apart; Developers vow to build distinctive community"

    By Will Kane

    Thirty years from now, 19,000 new people could live in a massive new neighborhood on Treasure Island in what developers hope will be the "most modern, most beautiful" spot in San Francisco.

    Developers hope the project, which goes before the Board of Supervisors for approval today, will feel like an urban village in the middle of a bustling metropolitan area. They hope urban farms, plentiful public transit and shared community spaces will give residents of the island a sense of community not found in other developments.

    But others worry that the proposed project - with an abundance of parking spots, expensive housing and environmental compromises - isn't different enough to make Treasure Island unique.

    The Planning Commission narrowly approved the project in April. The board will now consider the project and its environmental impacts.

    For Treasure Island to be successful, developers and city planning experts agree that the residents of the island must feel like part of a special, distinct neighborhood where people want to spend time, and not just another community of commuters to San Francisco.
