Bayfront Boulevard will have the character of a vibrant, pedestrian-oriented traditional “main street” mixed-use area similar to local precedents such as Solano Avenue in Albany, 4th Street in Berkeley, and College Avenue in Oakland. The street will have diagonal parking on both sides, and be lined with shop-fronts, restaurants and cafes, galleries, and arcades (approximately 305 residential units; 35,000 sq. ft. of office space; and 77,000 sq. ft. of retail space, and 40,000 sq. ft. of flex space). Public plazas along Bayfront Boulevard will provide views of the bay, outdoor seating for dining, and access to a pedestrian promenade that will run adjacent to and above the Bay Trail and railroad tracks.
This area will also include the new Inter-Modal Transit Station adjacent to Refugio Creek and will comprise of a civic plaza and café building. In addition to the community amenities, the Inter-Modal Transit Station will offer a connection to downtown San Francisco via a ferry terminal that includes a connection to Hercules Point. Bus service via WestCAT will complete the modes of transportation allowing this Inter-Modal Transit Station to be designated as the only train, ferry, and bus center in California.
