Opened in 1944, Seaport was one of many apartment projects built to house the boom of war workers flooding the Bay Area during World War II. It was demolished in the early 1950's. Seaport was built right next to the Stauffer Chemical facilities, and on top of land that had been contaminated by many decades of toxic manufacturing.
