San Francisco’s southeast waterfront is rapidly changing from the utilitarian, maritime- and industrial- focused use it has been over the last century, to a vibrant mixed-use landscape of residential, office, retail, restaurants, and open space. With over five miles of shoreline available for redevelopment, the City will change dramatically in the coming decades and result in a transformation unlike the world has seen in such a global metropolis in our generation. The transformation started with AT&T Park and the redevelopment of the Mission Bay neighborhood, and will extend south to Candlestick Point at the southern edge of the City. The result will be an entirely new face to the City that will attract new residents and tourists alike. This panel will use the public-private partnership model of the India Basin redevelopment project as a case study. This unique project involves redevelopment of a 50-acre site along 4,000 feet of shoreline. The mixed-use development will include 1,200 residential units, nearly 200,000 square feet of retail and small office, nearly twenty acres of park and open space, and public access amenities including linkage to the SF Bay Trail, waterfront access, and copious parking. The panel will include the developer, Build, and a project manager from San Francisco Recreation and Parks Department, who owns the waterfront portion of the land and adjacent parks. Bionic - the team’s lead Landscape Architecture firm responsible for design and project programming, and WRA, Inc. the project’s lead environmental consulting firm, will also present. The panel will include short presentations from the panel members followed by discussion involving the audience. Relevant topics for discussion will include the public-private partnership process, community involvement in project planning, designing a comprehensive CEQA review for two projects in different stages of development, waterfront development in the regulatory context, sea level rise planning and resilient design.
