Mixed-Use Project Experience
Located along the southeastern waterfront of San Francisco, the Hunters Point Shipyard and Candlestick Point Phase 2 project includes 10,500 new housing units, 3 million square feet of research and development space, over 1 million square feet of commercial/office space, a 220-room hotel, 330,000 square feet of artist space, all new infrastructure, and shoreline improvements.
The Brooklyn Basin mixed use development is redeveloping a 65-acre parcel of the Port of Oakland through detailed master planning and extensive entitlement processing. The site extends from Oak Street to Ninth Street along the Oakland Estuary and will include 3,100 residential units and 200,000 square feet of commercial/retail space. Thirty acres of the 1.2-mile waterfront will be developed into open space, trails, and bike and pedestrian paths.
BKF prepared the engineering Master Plan for the award winning Bay Meadows mixed-use development in San Mateo. On- and off-site improvements included roadway and highway interchange design.
Implemented as a joint City/Catellus partnership, since 1998 BKF has served as the civil engineer and surveyor to redevelop 215 acres of the former Alameda Naval Air Station Fleet Industrial Supply Center (FISC) and East Housing.
9-story condominium building with 70 residential units, ground floor commercial space, and one subterranean level of basement storage and parking. BKF assisted the design team with stormwater management strategies to meet SFPUC’s required 25% reduction in stormwater volume and flow, which were eventually implemented with the use of flow through planters on the second floor courtyard and ninth floor roof deck.
BKF’s role in the award winning Santana Row project involved master planning all transportation improvements, as well as designing and coordinating all on-site improvements and approvals with the various third parties, developers, sub-consultants, jurisdictions, and stakeholders. BKF was involved throughout the entire duration of the project from the start of the site permitting stage through construction, working directly with the City of San Jose planning staff and the developer to construct a premier and critically acclaimed development.
2001 Market Street includes a Whole Foods grocery store and 81 rental housing units which opened in late 2013. Rainwater harvesting, operating together with many other sustainable features, enabled the project to achieve LEED Gold Certification.
BKF is providing civil engineering and planning services for Sonoma Mountain Village (SOMO). SOMO intends to transform the former 175-Acre Lucent Technologies light industrial manufacturing campus into a vibrant mixed-use sustainable village. Additionally, SOMO, as part of the US Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design for Neighborhood Development (LEED-ND), has acheived the highest certification level, LEED Platinum. In 2008, SOMO was awarded the Governor’s Environmental and Economic Leadership Award (GEELA).
The entire block surrounding the historic Press Telegram building is being redeveloped into office use. The historic integrity of the building will be retained while the improvements are being made. BKF design integrates the old with the new on a classic infill site. BKF is working with the developer and contractor to design all the perimeter sidewalk improvements, as well as a new courtyard and entry into the buildings.
