Tentative Agenda

  1. Call to Order
  2. Hunters Point Shipyard Project, City and County of San Francisco; Second Pre-Application Review [ adobe 309KB]
    (Jaime Michaels) [415/352-3613]
    The Design Review Board will hold a public hearing on a proposal by the San Francisco Redevelopment Agency and CP Development Co., LP, to implement a multi-use project at the Hunter’s Point Shipyard, an approximately 880-acre site along a 7.0-mile section of the southeastern waterfront in the City and County of San Francisco. The proposed development project would involve the construction of 10,500 residential units, a 68-foot-wide bridge at Yosemite Slough, a public housing facility to replace the existing Alice Griffith complex, and possibly a new football stadium. In addition, the project would involve the development of 885,000 square feet of retail space, 2,500,000 square feet of research and development space, a 220-room hotel, a 10,000-square-foot performance center, a 225,000-square-foot artist’s facility, and approximately 335 acres of open and park space. Across the site, building heights range from three-story townhomes to 42-floor highrises. The site would be developed to facilitate auto, pedestrian, bicycle, and public transit circulation. The project would occur within the Commission’s 100-foot shoreline band and Bay jurisdictions, and within an area currently designated for priority use in the Commission’s San Francisco Bay Plan. The Board’s review of this project will focus on whether: (1) the proposed public improvements facilitate diverse Bay-related activities and movement to and along the shoreline of the Bay; (2) the proposed shoreline protection would preserve Bay views and public access as future sea level rise occurs; and (3) the access is designed to prevent impacts on wildlife at specific areas proposed for habitat restoration.

  3. Candlestick Point State Park Recreation Area (First Pre-Application Review) [ adobe 209KB]
    (Karen Weiss) [415/352-3669]
    The Design Review Board will hold a public hearing on a proposal to redevelop and expand the existing 72-acre Candlestick Point State Recreation Area (State Park). This is the Board’s first review of the proposed project. The 132-acre site is located along an approximately 3.3-mile-long section of the southeastern waterfront in the City and County of San Francisco. The expansion area includes Yosemite Slough to the west, the south side of South Basin, and all land areas bayward of Hunter’s Point Expressway.

    The proposed 132-acre park would include zones of tidal marsh habitat, grassland and coastal native shrub areas, active recreation areas, urban agriculture areas, beaches, approximately 300 to 500 parking spaces, and administrative/maintenance facilities. According to the project proponents, the State Park would create a vibrant recreational waterfront park that would provide multiple connections to the redeveloped areas proposed by the Hunters Point development project landward of the State Park.
