San Francisco Ferry Terminal Expansion Update

The WETA Downtown San Francisco Ferry Terminal Expansion is on schedule for completion in January 2020.

The 17,000-square-foot public plaza (above) just south of the Ferry Building, featuring amphitheater stepped seating, is beginning to take shape. New gates F and G (left) have been in service since February. The full expansion is scheduled to be completed in January 2020.

The WETA Downtown San Francisco Ferry Terminal Expansion is on schedule for completion in January 2020.  Gates F and G, along with the new over-water promenade and pedestrian bridge, are now both fully operational and have been since February 2019. Happening now and over the next few months is over-water construction of the 17,000-square-foot granite plaza and re-construction of Gate E.

  

The plaza will be a treat for the public with its amphitheater stepped seating and planter landscaping. Because part of WETA’s mission involves emergency response, the plaza also will serve as a gathering area in the event of a regional disaster.

  

Currently missing from the site, but returning soon, is the Gate E float. It was towed to Bay Ship & Yacht in Alameda, where it is being refurbished to top condition.

        

In the meantime, the deck for Gate E is being demolished so it can be upgraded and joined with Gate F and Gate G via the promenade, plaza and pedestrian bridge. All of the gates have been designed at a height to allow for sea level rise.
