    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 Downtown San Francisco Ferry Terminal Expansion project. The project would involve the construction of one additional gate, Gate A in the North Basin and two additional gates, Gates F and G in the South Basin. This second review will focus on the work proposed in the South Basin, including the construction of Gates F and G, the creation of an East Bayside Promenade to connect Gates E, F and G and proposed canopies within this area, the creation of a raised new plaza area within the “lagoon” between the Ferry Building and the Agriculture Building, and connections between the raised plaza area to the Embarcadero and the Agriculture Building. Though not proposed as part of this project, a design for a South Bayside Promenade along the Ferry Plaza is also included for review by the Board at this time.
