The Harbor Village Resort was a proposed complex of three skyscrapers intended for San Francisco's India Basin in the Bayview-Hunters Point district.[1] To be located on Hudson Street, the mixed-use complex would have consisted of a 250-boat marina and three 61 story skyscrapers towering 650 feet (198 m) over the marina.[1][2] The three towers, to be named Harbor Village Resort I, II & III, would be spaced 300 ft (91 m) apart.[1] The entire complex was envisioned to contain 1,600 three or four bedroom residences.[1] If built, the three 650 foot (198 m) skyscrapers would tower significantly taller than any current structure in the neighborhood.[3]

The project was proposed in 2004 by developer John Hickey and met with a combination of "disbelief" and skepticism by neighbors and city planners.[4] Hickey, however, was convicted of fraud in 2005 and sent to prison in 2007 for swindling 700 investors out of $18.5 million.[5] The project was never built.
