with 2 comments

For this installment berDerp brings to you another UrbEx series.. thanks to my boy plug1, we tracked over to Pier 70 on Sunday.. and I got some niftY fotos for you today..

Warehouse no 6 was built in 1941 and sits on the 60 acre area known as Pier 70. A nice aerial image of the entire area can be found here. Warehouse # 6 is known at the “Light Warehouse”, and is over 500′ in length. Originally this building was the storage location of pieces that were used to outfit a ship once it was floated into one of the web basins.

Ships started being constructed in the Potrero Point and Mission Bay area as far back as the Gold Rush. Now several buildings are vacant, but there is still an active dry dock on the grounds.
