    The Design Review Board and the Port of San Francisco’s Waterfront Design Advisory Committee will hold their third pre-application review of the proposal by National Parks Service, Port of San Francisco, and Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy for a redesigned ferry terminal to service Alcatraz Island and other points at Piers 31, 31 ½, and 33, on the northeast San Francisco waterfront. The proposed project would create three berths to expand ferry service, reconfigure and redesign the embarkation area at Pier 31 ½, create a public plaza, and rehabilitate and reuse portions of the Piers 31 and 33 bulkhead and shed buildings.

  5. Doolittle Drive San Francisco Bay Trail Extension, City of Oakland, Alameda County (First Pre-Application Review)
    The Design Review Board will hold their first pre-application review of the proposal by East Bay Regional Park District for the first phase of the Doolittle Drive San Francisco Bay Trail Extension project at the Martin Luther King Junior Shoreline Park.

  6. Terminal One/Latitude Project, City of Richmond, Contra Costa County (Fifth Pre-Application Review)
    The Design Review Board will hold their fifth pre-application review of a redevelopment project for the 13-acre shoreline site, Terminal One. The proposed project would replace the heavy industrial port-related land use of the site with mixed-use development, involving the construction of approximately 316 residential units and the repurposing of the 50,000-square-foot Terminal One Wharf as a public waterfront park. In addition to the residential units and waterfront park, the proposed project would include the development of approximately 2,000 square feet of retail space, both public and private amenities, an extension of the Bay Trail (totaling 2,356 feet), and the construction of the publicly-accessible Shoreline Drive along the shoreline of the site.
