Terminal One

Richmond, CA

A new waterfront park provides public access to a previously off-limits stretch of the San Francisco Bay shoreline.

The redevelopment of Terminal One, historically used as a bulk terminal and storage tank farm with an associated wharf, includes five residential buildings, townhomes, and public open space uses on a 13 acre waterfront site. The primary component of the public access improvements is the transformation of the existing wharf into a public park with a variety of program areas, including a family picnic pavilion, informal play theater, flexible lawn, and a coastal garden.

Other amenities include an extension of the Bay Trail, providing bicycle and pedestrian access to the waterfront park and San Francisco Bay shoreline. Public access “mews” cross through the site, serving as a north-south pedestrian and bicycle promenade and a visual and physical corridor from the adjacent Miller-Knox Regional Shoreline Park.
