Bay View Hunter's Point Gateway
San Francisco, California
Located on a prominent site at Third Street and Cargo Way near Islais Creek Channel area, the Mission Bay Project is to be located to the north and south of the Mission Creek Channel. The project is to consist of over 6,000 housing units, mixed use retail, urban entertainment complexes and public open space areas, as well as a school site and the new UCSF campus. The plan is for a 20 year build out of this project, to be built in phases.
The landscape development portion of the Master Plan for Redevelopment consists of approximately 50 acres of parks, pedestrian and bike trails, children’s playgrounds, public open spaces, and playfields and play courts. It also includes improvements to the Mission Creek channel edge and the bay shoreline.
During the master plan for development and entitlements phase, Antonia Bava Landscape Architects had responsibility for the programming and cost estimating of all open space and streetscape development. In association with the Olin Partnership, other areas of responsibility included: master plan preparation, streetscape and open space design development, design guidelines and coordination with the project design/engineering team.
ABLA was heavily involved in the public review process which included meetings with the Community Advisory Committee (CAC), the Mayor’s Office and the Mission Creek Housing Association.
