Here’s a way to get attention for your trade mission to China: Gov. Jerry Brown announces—in Beijing—a $1.5 billion investment by Chinese investors to transform the waterfront next to Jack London Square. The so-called Brooklyn Basin project, to break ground next year, will have 3,100 housing units, 30 acres of parks and 200,000 square feet of retail and commercial space. That’s the developer’s rendering, happy sea gulls included. Chronicle has the story with additional concept views.

Now if they could just throw in a ballpark.
