-'. -sr.-.-. ,- A few responses: From John Ritchie, City planning commissioner and realtor: "It takes ten to fifteen years to develop an industrial park." From Coldwell Banker's Wilbur: "They're going to have a tough time." From Lex Byers, general manager of finance and specialist in economic development, San Francisco Chamber of Commerce: "I see no problem merchandising the land once it's ready." From Buell, the Mayor's business development man: "Wholesaling and manufacturing are leaving the city. Very few blue collar jobs, if any, are growing here." From Cushman Wakefield's vice president John Dayton: "I'd give it a pretty fair vote for success . . . though redevelopment has a habit of taking a longer time to reach fruition than other agencies." Meanwhile, the in-house promoters are having some second thoughts. Phillips is talking about pressing the federal government to come to his rescue: He's looking at the Rincon Annex Post Office which "is being strangled to death," he says. "Here there's a place for people to park and access to Highway 280. It's just a matter of politicking." The redevelopment people are also considering alternates to industry. "We are debating whether to go after offices as well as industry." Marshall has been studying office parks and multi-use parks. Okay, they're looking at alternatives but what about plain old-fashioned hustling? Back in March the Chamber of Commerce newsletter announced that the redevelopment agency's salesman is cooperating with the chamber's economic development department. But four months later, Scot Stewart, manager of that department, told me 'I really have not paid that much attention to India Basin," while allowing, "but I've only been in the department for three months." Says Marshall: "I'm coming out with a national brochure soon . . . We're trying to develop a color scheme for a logo (for advertising) ... Ed Smith's helping put together a local development corporation for financing using SBA (Small Business Administration) funds ... For the first time we're giving commissions. Six percent on the first $150,000, five percent after that. Coldwell Banker offers only five percent flat, so it's an added incentive to deal with us." Regardless of the attractions of Butch-ertown's competitors, Morris Phillips seems to think the industrial park at the foot of the Hunters Point housing developments can compete on two basic selling points. One, it's in the city. "With the energy crisis getting worse, that's a big advantage." Two, company responsibility. Responsibility to employ minorities? Phillips: "Yes. It's part of their affirmative attitude." I allow as how I hope he's right, but I cannot help but feel that the project which could benefit the city ought to be hustled harder. "The redevelopment people are also considering alternatives to industry,9 rm I ' iw f J So Mi StOD PlDOliS G Doculily your noma din EM313 UIIll mav have never hatl wa"et l"ted' purS8 snatend 0' broken Into, but Jf II U it's just matter of time: The bad guys want to rip you off!
