- Pier 5 Outdoor Dining Canopy Enclosure Project: Pier 5, City and County of San Francisco (First Review) [ 192 KB]
The Design Review Board will hold a joint public hearing with the Port of San Francisco’s Waterfront Design Advisory Board on a proposal to enclose an approximately 752-square-foot area of dedicated public access north of the Pier 5 bulkhead building for outdoor dining associated with a new restaurant at Pier 5, for a period of five years. The project would involve installing two-foot-high metal privacy panels, metal posts and a shallow sloped fabric canopy cover to support transparent roll-down vinyl screens that would be drawn down during inclement weather. Improvements for public outdoor dining would also be provided as part of the project west of the enclosed canopy area and along Herb Caen Way. To offset the temporary loss of the enclosed public access area, the applicants are proposing improvements within the Pier 7 wharf area that include installing wood decking on the existing concrete plinths for improved seating, installing new tables and chairs, bike racks, and signage, and relocating the black and white pylon sign along Herb Caen Way to be in line with the existing lightpoles.

On Treasure Island the project involves approximately 300 acres of new public park and open space, including an approximately 3.5-mile public shoreline trail, a 20-acre Western Shoreline Art park, a 100-acre park with a sailboat and small craft launch site, various neighborhood parks, and a cultural park and public plaza near the commercial core. Proposed open space on YBI includes a 6-acre hilltop park, trails connecting from the hilltop park to the shore and to Treasure Island, and approximately 64-acres of beach access, natural habitat and a garden restoration.
