    BCDC's Design Review Board and the Port of San Francisco's Waterfront Design Advisory Committee will hold a public hearing on an overall concept plan for the Downtown Ferry Terminal Expansion project and public space improvements in the Ferry Building area. The preliminary public space improvement concepts (that may go beyond those associated with the Ferry Terminal expansion project) include: the removal of Pier ½ and public access improvements in this area, the creation of an East Bayside Promenade extending pedestrian circulation south of the Ferry Building, improvements to the Ferry Plaza, the creation of a South Bayside Promenade along the south edge of the Ferry Plaza, and the creation of an Embarcadero Plaza by covering the open lagoon area between the Ferry Building and Agriculture Building.

  3. Treasure Island and Yerba Buena Island Redevelopment Project (Third Review) [ adobe 211 KB ]
    The Design Review Board will hold a third public hearing on a proposal to redevelop Treasure Island and Yerba Buena Island (YBI) in the City and County of San Francisco. The proposed project includes 6,000 to 8,000 residential units, 450,000 square feet of retail space, up to 500 hotel rooms, a cultural center, a new ferry terminal and a transit program. 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 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 Treasure Island, and beach access. At its March 7, 2011 review, the Board will review the proposed ferry terminal, expanded marina and the revised public access trails on YBI. (Karen Weiss) [415/352-3669  karenw@bcdc.ca.gov]
