- James R. Herman Cruise Terminal Project – Piers 27 - 29, City and County of San Francisco (Second Review) [ 110KB ]
BCDC's Design Review Board (DRB) and the Port of San Francisco's Waterfront Design Advisory Committee (WDAC) will hold a public hearing on the cruise ship terminal project, located at Piers 27-29, along the San Francisco waterfront. The project would involve demolishing the existing Pier 27 shed, and constructing an approximately 84,500 gross-square-foot, two-story, Cruise Ship Terminal building in its place, an approximately 130,000-square-foot (3-acre) Ground Transportation Area (GTA) within the “valley” between Piers 27 and 29 to serve the vehicular needs of the cruise terminal, and an approximately 95,00-square-foot (2.18-acre) public park known as the Northeast Wharf Plaza, along the southeast corner of the site. Other public access benefits that may be associated with the project include apron access along Piers 27-29 and Pier 23, a Bayside History Walk within Pier 29, an approximately three-acre area at the tip of Pier 27, and other public access areas created by the removal of sheds or buildings elsewhere along the waterfront.
