I should have included this proposal in the original blog entry, but I'm intrigued by the concept plans being presented by the Whitestar Group for their lands in the Barton/Bay area;

Glancing at the photos and fly-through video, this would appear to have many of the elements I'm looking for on Pier 8.
I'm not too sure what they are proposing for the smaller buildings behind the condo building, but they appear to be mixed use - perhaps some retail, office space, lofts etc.... One of their largest hurdles will be the lack of a view to anywhere from the patios in the centre of the complex. Unless that whole patio/promenade area is higher than I realize, and has sightlines over the 3-4 storey buildings fronting Tiffany and Stuart.

It will be interesting to see how this unfolds.
