Hunters Point Shipyard Phase 2 Candlestick Point

The Candlestick Point and Hunters Point Shipyard Phase 2 development (CP-HPS Phase 2) is a 693-acre, master-planned, urban infill project approved for implementation along the southeastern edge of San Francisco. The development, as entitled, envisions two new waterfront neighborhoods (Candlestick Point and Hunters Point Shipyard Phase 2), both of which will provide new housing, commercial, retail and office uses to Bayview Hunters Point, and includes over 340 acres of parks and open space.

CP-HPS Phase 2 is bordered by San Francisco Bay’s India Basin on the north; the Executive Park area and the San Mateo County line on the south; existing Bayview Hunters Point neighborhoods on the west, such as Bayview Hill, the Yosemite Slough area Hunters Point Hill and Hunters Point Shipyard Phase 1; and the greater San Francisco Bay to the north and east. 

CP-HPS Phase 2 brings together two portions of two separate redevelopment project areas. The the approximately 272-acre Candlestick Point area is described in the Bayview Hunters Point Redevelopment Plan as the “Candles tick Point Activity Node” or Zone 1 of the Bayview Hunters Point Redevelopment Project Area. That plan was adopted in 2006. Outside of Candlestick Point, the Bayview Hunters Point Redevelopment Project Area  is inactive since the dissolution of California redevelopment law in 2011. The approximately 421-acre Hunters Point Shipyard Phase 2 area is the larger, yet-to-be-redeveloped, waterfront phase of the Hunters Point Shipyard Redevelopment Project Area adopted in 1997.

In June 2010, the redevelopment plans for Bayview Hunters Point and the Hunters Point Shipyard were amended to facilitate the integrated development of the Candlestick Point area and the Hunters Point Shipyard Phase 2 area under one developer and as one development project known as CP-HPS Phase 2. 

The amended plans call for the construction of a new street and open space network, including bus-rapid-transit lines and opportunities for consolidated district-scale energy and water utilities, upon which new housing and commercial districts will be developed. The open space network includes urban parks, plazas and squares, and an extensive waterfront greenway belt providing passive and active recreation amenities, with bicycle infrastructure, sports fields, a yacht marina and water-based transportation. Commercial districts in both Candlestick Point and Hunters Point Shipyard Phase 2 will provide economic development opportunities in office and R&D uses, as well as community-oriented amenity spaces that will be surrounded by approximately 10,672 new housing units, of which 31% will be affordable to low- and moderate-income households. While most of the project is in the pre-development phase, the Alice Griffith residential neighborhood in Candlestick Point is in the development phase and will offer 256 replacement public housing units and 242 new affordable housing units to low- and moderate-income San Francisco families. 

Development in CP-HPS Phase 2 is controlled by the Bayview Hunters Point Redevelopment Plan and the Hunters Point Shipyard Redevelopment Plan, along with the Candlestick Point Design for Development document and the Hunters Point Shipyard Phase 2 Design for Development document, which lay out the development standards and guidelines for new buildings. Design review in CP-HPS Phase 2 follows the Candlestick Point and Phase 2 of the Hunters Point Shipyard Design Review and Document Approval Procedure. The redevelopment of CP-HPS Phase 2 is also governed by the Disposition and Development Agreement (Candlestick Point and Phase 2 of the Hunters Point Shipyard) between the Successor Agency to the San Francisco Redevelopment Agency (aka, OCII) and CP Development Co., LLC (administered by FivePoint as the “master developer”), as amended, and by various agreements with city and state agencies. 

Environmental Remediation at Hunters Point Shipyard Phase 2    

The Hunters Point Shipyard Phase 2 portion of the Hunters Point Shipyard is an environmental “superfund” site that requires extensive clean-up by the United States Navy. The Navy is responsible for environmental remediation and clean-up of the usite. The Navy’s clean-up is overseen by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the California Department of Toxic Substances Control, and the Regional Water Quality Control Board. Once cleanup is complete, the Navy will transfer clean property to OCII for redevelopment.  OCII will not accept any property until the oversight agencies listed above and the San Francisco Department of Public Health confirm the property is safe and ready for transfer and redevelopment. Public safety and environmental protection are the highest priority as the Navy and the oversight agencies conduct investigation and clean-up work at Hunters Point Shipyard Phase 2.
