Treasure Island Building One + Marina Plaza
San Francisco, CA
Andrea Cochran Landscape Architecture was selected to design the new, 4-acre, Building One and Marina Plaza public open space at Treasure Island. This project is part of the Phase 1 implementation projects of the Treasure Island development plan and central to the urban core of this new neighborhood. The two plazas are the front and back porches of the historic Building One. The project is a celebration of the colorful history of Treasure Island and the iconic Building One, situated in its unique vantage point in San Francisco Bay. The project is the front entry to the new TI neighborhood with an adjacent ferry terminal linking the SF ferry building with its TI counterpart, Building One and Building One Plaza. The project heavily relied on the communication between engineers, ecologists, historic preservationists and many other agencies. ACLA believes the success of the design was a result of the firm’s unique design prowess and the feedback from the project’s many collaborators.
