Chances are you’re already familiar with the plans for major America’s Cup related development in San Francisco at Piers 26-28, 27-29, and 30-32. But are you familiar with the plans for Marina Green which include bleachers for public viewing; up to 100,000 square feet of food, retail, and interactive displays; and tents for up to 2,000 VIPs?
Or how about the proposed hospitality and viewing area for up to 2,000 on Alcatraz, the temporary moorings at Fort Mason and Aquatic Park, and the designation of the Brannan Street Wharf as a strategic public open space?
With the America’s Cup Event Authority projecting between 100,000 and 250,000 spectators in San Francisco on race days during the week, and between 250,000 and 500,000 spectators on weekend and final race days, there’s a lot of building to be done.
If you’re interested in when and where it’s all proposed to be built (click images to enlarge), this is the document to read: 34th America’s Cup Environmental Impact Report Notice of Preparation.
And if you want to weigh in, these are the two public scoping meetings at which to do it: Wednesday, February 23 from 6:30 to 8:30 pm at City Hall and Thursday, February 24 from 6:30 to 8:30 pm at the Port’s offices on Pier 1.
And note a new race area that now appears to extend beyond the Golden Gate bridge:
