ArchDaily's Patrick Lynch reports Adjaye Associates, who recently completed D.C.'s National Museum of African American History and Culture, has been selected as the master plan architect and creative director for phase two of revitalizing the San Francisco Shipyard.
Developed by FivePoint, the waterfront neighborhood is being touted as one of the largest urban developments on the west coast. It will include both housing and a commercial district, containing new offices, labs, research facilities in addition to over 12,000 apartments, townhomes and condominiums.
The master plan will be developed over the next five years with a multi-billion dollar investment from FivePoint. The design will draw inspiration from the Shipyard’s rural and naval origins to celebrate the layered 150-year history of the neighborhood while maximizing access to the waterfront. The Shipyard site will serve as the anchor of a larger 760-acre urban plan that aims to add over 12,000 apartments, townhomes and condominiums to the competitive San Francisco housing market, and over 350 acres of waterfront parks, trails and restored shoreline.
