Hunters Point Shipyard
San Francisco, California
Hunters Point shipyard is a historic former naval shipyard located on a striking promontory in San Francisco Bay. With the closure of the shipyard and its integration into the city of San Francisco, Perkins + Will was commissioned to develop a plan for the shipyard’s reuse. The planning work included site planning, urban design, and an extensive public outreach effort. Our design for the shipyard’s reuse emphasized creating places for arts and industry, providing a rich entrepreneurial milieu for future users, meeting the access needs of growing businesses, and establishing a new destination on the San Francisco waterfront. The redevelopment plan included urban design guidelines for an arts marketplace, a waterfront cultural district, a light industrial research district, and a new residential/mixed-use neighborhood.
