New plans have been filed for a Bay Trail pedestrian bridge connecting the Potrero Power Station site with Warm Water Cove Park at 401 23rd Street, along the waterfront in Dogpatch, San Francisco. The plans designed by Groundworks Office will connect the mixed-use proposal with a small warehouse owned by Harrigan Weidenmuller Real Estate leased to Amazon. The plan will extend the ambitious waterfront trail envisioned by the Association of Bay Area Governments and Metropolitan Transportation Commission.
Groundworks Office is the project’s landscape architect, working with Simpson Gumpertz & Heger as the structural engineer and CBG as the civil engineer. WRA is the environmental consultant. The pedestrian and bicycle bridge will connect Warm Water Cove with the Amazon Warehouse parking lot at 401 23rd Street. Work will then extend the trail east along the waterfront by a DHL Express Warehouse to the Port Open Space at the end of 23rd Street.
The San Francisco Bay Trail extends 350 out of 500 miles along the Bay Area. Once complete, the trail will extend through 47 cities and seven toll bridges. By 401 23rd Street, the trail will eventually extend through the 2,600-unit Potrero Power Station and over one thousand-unit Pier 70, both with millions of square feet of offices, retail, and public space to accompany the housing.
Excavation will be required for 35 cubic yards of earth across 4,950 square feet of area, including demolition of the existing damaged wharf timber deck. Construction is expected to last around 18 months, with six months for the seawall and 12 months for the bridge. In-water work will need to happen between June 15th to November 30th during low tides.
