Document Description
A portion of the project would be located within the developed portion of the Robert T. Matsui Waterfront Park Amendments to the Master Plan for the Robert T. Matsui Waterfront Park include removing some landscaping within the footprint of the developed park to provide space for the Planetarium and Challenger Center, the "Living Machines." and a parking lot along Jibboom Street. The main lawn would need to be regraded and re-sodded, with the size of the main lawn remaining the same. The park would continue to provide views of the river. The main lawn would also function as a casual seating area for the stage at the rear of the Planetarium and ChallengerCenter. Additional trees would be planted in certain areas throughout the Project Site as proposed in the landscape plan. The Powehouse Science Center would operate the rehabilitate PG&E Power Station B and the new buildings shown on the master plan and the landscaped areas would continue to be publically accessible, including the new seating areas, walkways, and outdoor exhibits.
