Curbed San Francisco »

The San Francisco Port Commission estimates a seismic retrofitting and raising of the seawall that extends from Fisherman’s Wharf to Mission Creek will cost up to $5 billion, and much of the work should be completed within the next ten years. The existing seawall was completed in 1916 and consists of mostly landfill, and in a major earthquake, larger than the Loma Prieta quake in 1989, the seawall could shift several feet.
