!melk was the lead design Landscape Architect for an integrated team of consultants involved in the Streetscape Master Plan of a large mixed-use development on the San Francisco Bay. The site is currently split in two parts: Candlestick Point, famous for the football stadium of “The 49-ers”, and Hunters Point Ship Yard, where the US Navy operated from 1870 to 1994. Together, they form a 778 acres area that will be transformed into San Francisco’s last centrally located waterfront neighborhood.
The comprehensive Public Space and Streetscape Master Plan consisted of an extensive network of roads and streets, key public spaces, and a waterfront destination. A typology was created for the different roads which addressed organization, materiality, and landscaping pallettes. Focus was put on the sectional quality as well as connectivity back to the City and the waterfront.
