Daggett Park

San Francisco, CA

A public park, active streetscapes, and podium level interior gardens are designed for the new mixed-use residential site.

Daggett Park, once a brownfield site in the Dogpatch Neighborhood, has been transformed into a mixed-use residential site with ground floor retail, PDR spaces (production, distribution, and repair), and a new 1-acre neighborhood park. The park is located on an existing right of way through the site that the City acquired from the Port Authority. Other open spaces on the site, include a public mid-block passageway, and an olive grove garden.

CMG was contracted to design the park, a corner garden, 3 streetscapes, and podium level interior gardens for the buildings. Stormwater management is incorporated into the park and streetscape design. A Shared Public Way, a new streetscape typology that CMG designed for Treasure Island, creates a curbless thoroughfare and plaza near the retail space to allow vehicular access, yet prioritize pedestrians.

The park design process involved significant community engagement to develop the programming for three major park components: a dog park, a lawn for events and recreation, and two play sculptures: the Tilted Lawn and the Penta-Step.
