Piers 30-32 and Seawall Lot 330   San Francisco, California, USA

Grimshaw, with James Corner Field Operations (Field Operations), on behalf of Strada Investment Group and Trammell Crow Companies (Strada TCC), is pleased to reveal initial design concepts for the redevelopment of Piers 30-32 and Seawall Lot 330 in San Francisco.

The proposal provides a $369M investment in port infrastructure and a broad range of public benefits for the city and the region, including much-needed affordable housing that is fully paid for by the project, dynamic new waterfront public spaces and recreational uses that prioritize inclusivity and openness, enhanced maritime uses, and significant workforce development and job opportunities.

Enhancing public access and maritime use on the piers while protecting the environment is a major tenet of the proposal. This goal is achieved by demolishing the entire existing pier slab and piles and then rebuilding brand new piers with a 45% smaller footprint. The resulting pier will be a total of 7.2 acres in size of which almost 3 acres will be publicly accessible open space.

The city’s relationship to the bay has evolved over time, now defined by a successful reimagining of the waterfront from industry trade and conveyance, to activity, health, community, ecology and resilience. In this context the Piers 30-32 and the Seawall 330 sites provide an essential opportunity to continue the opening of downtown San Francisco to the water, successfully integrating infrastructure, housing, workplace, ecology, public amenity and community into a new and vibrant waterfront hub.

The new Piers 30-32 & Seawall 330 project will further San Francisco’s evolution as one of the world’s most extraordinary places to live, work and visit. Our design vision builds on the momentum of recent waterfront development initiatives to deliver a vision that celebrates the bay, placing inclusivity, public access and enjoyment at the heart of the design.

The proposal is a multi-faceted celebration of the bay that encourages joyous and active engagement of the water for all. The team has set out to create a dynamic and lively public realm at the water’s edge, combining ecological initiatives, programmed activities and establish and promote dynamic and robust ecological initiatives along the smart, sustainable and equitable housing and workplaces right on San Francisco’s front porch.
