California– The Port of San Francisco is seeking developers for redevelopment of 13 of the city’s historic piers and the Agriculture building adjacent to the Ferry Building. Proposed concepts are expected to align with the priorities outlined in the city waterfront land use plan, which include: arts and culture, assembly and entertainment, education, food and beverage, maritime (excursion and leisure), museums, recreation and specialty retail. All plans should highlight the historic waterfront’s potential to deliver an outstanding patron experience.
Responses to the request for information
are due at the end of October, and a request for proposals is expected in early 2019. Successful public-private partnerships have resulted in the rehabilitation of the Exploratorium at Pier 15 and bulkhead buildings at Piers 1½, 3 and 5. These restored facilities add to attractions at the waterfront, alongside Pier 39 and Fisherman’s Wharf. Over 24 million people a year visit the waterfront.
