The proposed project would involve the construction of two berths, including necessary dredging, and a new terminal for cruise ships that call at the Port of San Francisco, as well as ancillary commercial development, all on Pier 30-32. The proposed project also would include construction of a residential project on Seawall Lot 330, across The Embarcadero from Pier 30-32. The cruise terminal is proposed to contain about 100,000 sf of floor area, while the commercial component is proposed to include about 460,000 (gsf) of office space and about 220,000 gsf of retail, restaurant and entertainment (cinema) space. About 450 parking spaces would be provided on the pier. The proposal includes repairing and reconfiguring the pier to provide waterfront open space, berthing for ferries and recreational boats, and preservation of Red's Java House. The residential component, on the block bounded by The Embarcadero, Beale and Bryant Streets, would include approximately 350 dwelling units and about 350 off-street parking spaces. The SEIR will also analyze the proposed Brannan Street Wharf in the current location of Piers 34 and 36, which would be demolished to create waterfront open space and to enable the construction of an approximately 57,000-square-foot park along The Embarcadero. This project would be implemented by the Port on a separate timeline.
The Supplemental EIR will supplement the Waterfront Land Use Plan EIR (Case No. 94.115E, SCH# 1994123007, certified January 9, 1997). The Supplemental EIR will describe changes in the setting since certification of the Waterfront Land Use Plan EIR, as well as any new information that has become available, and will assess project-specific, cumulative, direct, and indirect impacts affecting the physical environment. It is currently anticipated that the Supplemental EIR will update the following areas from the Waterfront Land Use Plan EIR: land use, visual quality, transportation, air quality, hydrology, and water quality, wind, shadow, and hazardous materials.
