Treasure/Yerba Buena Islands Development Project
Leadership in Sustainability
Establishing a Regional Destination
Unique San Francisco Neighborhood
Creating Community Benefits / Job Opportunities
The Treasure Island/Yerba Buena Island Development Project will produce a new San Francisco neighborhood of up to 8,000 homes, including homes offered at below-market rates, extensive parks and open space, hotels, restaurants, retail, entertainment and the arts.
The project’s design draws heavily upon the natural setting and features of Treasure Island and Yerba Buena Island – sun, wind, views both of and from the Islands, shorelines, topography, soils, habitat, and vegetation – and features intentional contrasts that will add interest for all who live on or visit the Islands.
The transportation network is designed to prioritize pedestrians and cyclists, and encourages sustainable transit-oriented choices as part of everyday life. Transportation demand management programs such as the country’s first congestion pricing program, and mandatory household transit passes, parking policies and ramp metering will maximize transit use.
Key to the project is an exceptional park system with a diverse array of urban public spaces that are integrated with new neighborhood development and provide a connection with the ecological and experiential qualities of the Bay. Over 300 acres total between both Islands will be devoted to parklands, wetlands, recreational sites, trails, and native habitat.
