BA, along with a local design team, developed the Cruise Ship Terminal and Northeast Wharf Plaza (Public Park) constructed on an 8-acre pier site comprised of the existing Pier 27 and the adjacent vehicular transportation area. The first users of the cruise ship terminal was the America’s Cup for the sailboat races on San Francisco Bay.
The facility was designed to provide a venue for indoor/outdoor hospitality facilities as part of the terminal project. The park provides an open air waiting area, while the interior space was developed with more access, back-of-house preparation areas, durable finishes and easy access to the pier that also has an invisible fence that can be extended when a cruise vessel is in port or put away for access to the water’s edge. The project is certified LEED Gold.
