The 500-acre Hunters Point Shipyard is located on the prominent peninsula along San Francisco's southeastern waterfront between the City's Financial District and San Francisco International Airport. Candlestick Point and CandlestickPark football stadium are immediately to the southwest while the Port of San Francisco and the Mission Bay project are immediately north of the Shipyard. The predominantly flat peninsula is punctuated by Hunters Point Hill which offers incredible vistas and view corridors for future residential development.
The Shipyard has been divided by the Navy into six primary parcels (A through G) for the purpose of determining required levels and procedures for hazardous materials remediation.
The Shipyard was included on the Department of Defense's 1991 Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) list. In 1993, the San Francisco Board of Supervisors designated the Shipyard as a Redevelopment Survey Area. Congress then authorized the Department of Defense to transfer the Shipyard to the City under special terms and in 1997, after an extensive multi-year community planning effort, the Board of Supervisors adopted the Hunters Point Naval Shipyard Redevelopment Plan.
Along with the Redevelopment Plan, a companion document called the Design for Development has been approved by the City Planning and Redevelopment Agency Commissions. Together, these two documents identify the project goals and objectives, land use designations, development standards, community services and benefits, affordable housing and business relocation requirements, development approval process and redevelopment financing opportunities for the Shipyard.
Hunters Point Shipyard Citizen's Advisory Committee
The Hunters Point Shipyard Citizen's Advisory Committee (CAC) is a group of San Francisco community residents and business owners who are selected by the Mayor to oversee the redevelopment process. Convened in 1993, the CAC was instrumental in the development of the Redevelopment Plan as well as the planning process for the reuse of the Hunters Point Shipyard. After numerous public workshops and community meetings, the CAC adopted a set of planning guidelines. The CAC guidelines represent a strong community consensus and has set the tone for the renewal of the project area. These guidelines were integrated into the Redevelopment Plan. They are as follows:
Create jobs for economic vitality
Support existing businesses and an artist's community
Create an appropriate mix of new businesses
Balance development and environmental conservation
Facilitate appropriate immediate access
Integrate land use
The CAC holds public meetings monthly at the Southeast Community Facility in the Bayview District.
HPS Development Co., LP - Developer
In March of 1999, the Redevelopment Agency Commission selected Lennar/BVHP Partners (now known as "HPS Development Co., LP" or Lennar") as the Master Developer of the Hunters Point Shipyard.
