India Basin Capital Improvement (Future Park Site)

Concept Design For India Basin

In 2014, the San Francisco Recreation and Parks Department acquired 900 Innes at India Basin in San Francisco’s Bay View Hunters Point neighborhood. With scenic views, waterfront access, and natural resources, the site is the Department’s only San Francisco Bay-front property. 

At India Basin, the Department, in partnership with the BVHP community, the Trust for Public Land, and the San Francisco Parks Alliance, endeavor to build a park that is both spectacular and crucial to the health of San Francisco’s southeast communities, which have been historically underserved. The development of 900 Innes will transform a post-industrial brownfield into 21st-century legacy park in a historic waterfront context, with an emphasis on public access, social equity, waterfront recreation, resiliency to sea level rise, and habitat and wetland restoration and enhancement.

The proposed plan combines the existing India Basin Shoreline Park area and 900 Innes property into one grand 10-acre waterfront park development that closes a critical gap in the San Francisco Bay Trail. The property is also the mid-point of the one and a half mile-long India Basin shoreline, which is comprised of seven properties totaling 64 acres, six of seven of which are in some stage of development.

As such, there is a unique opportunity to design these properties so that the India Basin shoreline becomes a seamless waterfront park experience on a grand scale. It will be an integrated parks, trails and open space system with a comprehensive set of programs and amenities, trails that connect gracefully, one signage system, and furniture and fixtures that complement each other.
