The container depot pays the bills that prop 13 took away and as a port city, it needed to be done as no other location would have worked without demolishing something else to provide the capacity.

    It was a beautiful place. I’m sad I never got to see it. Born in LB but left in ’94 without getting to drive around the base. I’m old enough to remember Pier Point and The Pike — those too had their day in the sun. I miss them too.
