if you build it, they will come. the giants are banking on a new pop-up development to draw big business over by at&t park. but as kpix 5's john ramos tells us, this could be the beginning of much bigger things over by the ballpark. >> reporter: if the giants have proven anything in the last five years, it's that big things can come from humble beginnings. and on this corner across the street, they are trying to do that again. >> today's a really exciting day and i liken it to the mid and late '90s when we kicking off the ballpark. >> reporter: it's called the yard at mission rock. and it couldn't be a more modest retail development.
6:13 pm
just a few converted shipping containers and some food trucks. there's a small beer garden, a couple of clothing outlets and a stage for weekend entertainment. not a big deal. but then, this is just a first step. >> it will be an opportunity to draw people down here and start getting people into the mindset of coming to this location. >> reporter: that's because there are big plans for this land. the giants are eager to create mission rock, a huge housing and retail development on what's now their main parking lot. >> we're not going anywhere. this ballpark, we have of a 66- year lease on the ballpark so we want to make sure that the environment around the front of the ballpark and the back of the ballpark is -- is warm and inviting. >> reporter: more importantly, it would allow the team's owners to profit from the economic boom their ballpark has created for this entire area. the plans for the development are still in concept stage. but this tiny pop-up village may help them firm up the vision. >> so this will be a good opportunity to see who gets drawn down to this area, what
6:14 pm
people like and they can incorporate that hopefully in their plans as they move forward. >> reporter: the ballpark was never meant to be just a ballpark. and this parking lot was never meant to hold cars. the vision is bigger than that. and if you think it will be tough to overcome the obstacles standing in their way, just remember, they have done it before. in san francisco, john ramos, kpix 5. >> the vision for the future may be big but so is the opposition. larry baer and the giants only need to look at the most recent waterfront failures voters killed the 8 washington high- rise tower plan near the ferry building in 2013. and the warriors had to scrap their plans to build that new arena on piers 30-32 close to the bay bridge. the arena will now be built south of at&t park where there's less traffic and much less opposition. 30 years after an arrest in golden gate park, and the mystery continues. the story involves music, drugs

6:16 pm
them, certainly thinking about them. >> reporter: it's a mystery police are still asked about 30 years after the arrest. >> we phone downstairs earlier today and spoke to the sergeant at property control. not been able to locate any property belonging to mr. jerry garcia. >> reporter: now here's the real bad news. the evidence and property room is inventoried and cleaned out every 15 months. and anything that's not part of an active criminal case -- >> it's either donated away or it's discarded and sent to the trash. >> reporter: so we're left to wonder what musical treasure was stashed in jerry's briefcase. >> working notes, completed drafts, who knows? but it's, um, it's incredibly exciting to think that they might actually turn up. >> reporter: but in all likelihood, those notes are gone and nothing is it going to bring 'em back. >> there's no reason to believe that we have this alleged property of mr. garcia. >> the story has resurfaced after it was mentioned recently
