Rising on the site of a former naval station in the heart of the San Francisco Bay, Treasure Island will be redeveloped into a 465-acre neighborhood including up to 8,000 housing units, 300,000 square feet of retail, 500 hotel rooms, 100,000 square feet of office space and vast stretches of public parks and open spaces laced with walking and bike trails. Plans for a new ferry quay and terminal will provide direct access to and from San Francisco. Treasure Island is owned through a joint venture with developer Wilson Meany, Lennar Corporation and Kenwood Investments.
Touted as one of the most transit-oriented sustainable developments in the country, the project has received several awards, including the 2009 National Honor Award for Regional and Urban Design from the American Institute of Architects (AIA) and the Governor’s Economic and Experimental Leadership Award. The Clinton Climate Initiative and the United States Green Building Council have selected Treasure Island as one of the 16 founding projects in 10 countries on six continents that will set an environmental and economic example for large-scale development projects around the world.
