The Bay Line: Bay Bridge to Go the Way of NYC's High Line?

The Bay Bridge in San Francisco, which connects the city and Oakland, is scheduled for demolition as soon as its more earthquake-friendly replacement is completed. But rather than scrap the old one, two San Francisco architects have a proposal along the lines of the High Line in New York: turn it into an urban park and apartments. Check out more photos and some analysis over at BLDGBLOG.

Here's a shot of what the bay bridge looks like currently, while under construction. The ugly stuff on the right is what the architects would like to build on, rather than see it demolished once the new bridge is complete.
