The transformative 500-acre redevelopment project creates a new San Francisco neighborhood – rejoining a former dilapidated military base back into the surrounding communities of Bay View. CMG added 40 acres of parks and public space through the Open Space Master Plan and the Streetscape Master Plan. The new neighborhood destination is home to Hillpoint Park, Hillside Central Park, Innes Court Park, as well as 16 pocket parks – designed as a series of distinct public spaces to accommodate community gardens, dining terraces, overlooks, and informal play areas, all with spectacular views.
Marin Country Day School
Nestled in a canyon formed by the ridges of Ring Mountain Nature Preserve, ecosystem restoration and academic ritual are the core of a K-8 school. For more than 15 years CMG has worked with Marin Country Day School to develop the 37-acre campus with special attention to the unique attributes of its environment and the school’s mission. Work began with a campus master plan and continued with its implementation. The story of water’s interaction with the valley encouraged CMG to explore several ideas in the subsequent design: rainwater harvesting, greywater reuse, stormwater infiltration, and native stream restoration.
Working alongside the San Francisco Giants and the Port of San Francisco, CMG has developed a public realm design concept for this 27-acre mixed use waterfront redevelopment project in San Francisco’s Mission Bay. A network of distinct open spaces and lively, pedestrian-priority streets drive the design and the future neighborhood identity.
Willie “Woo Woo” Wong Playground
Willie ‘Woo Woo’ Wong Playground is one of Chinatown’s few historic, significant outdoor spaces. As the only park in the neighborhood for active outdoor recreation, it is used by Chinatown residents of all ages. As one of the nation’s most densely populated urban areas, this renovation of an historical public open space is immensely important.
