San Francisco Event Plan
As Proposed in Host City Agreement

January 7, 2011

Image: 2011

The above image is from exhibits accompanying the Host City Agreement drafted by the City of San Francisco and Golden Gate YC.  It is a preliminary outline for the Northern Waterfront Alternative which replaced the original plan that centered the America's Cup Village on the piers south of the Bay Bridge. 

It is useful as a starting point in understanding the scope and locations for the improvements intended for the America's Cup Village when Golden Gate YC defends the America's Cup in 2013.  Some of the specifics may change as more serious design takes place now that GGYC's selection of San Francisco is official, and approvals and entitlements progress.

Downtown San Francisco is to the lower middle-right of the image, the Bay Bridge is at the top of the image which is roughly east.  AT&T Park, the baseball stadium of the San Francisco Giants, is at the far right along the waterfront.

The majority of public activities would take place on Piers 27/29, which hosts attractions and entertainment, and on Piers 30/32 where the teams would be based.  A Promenade, the winding green line along the Embarcadero in the image above, would connect the various locations.

Further south would be facilities to support USA 17, BMW Oracle's America's Cup winning trimaran, with mooring space adjacent, implying that the incredible boat may sail again, this time in San Francisco Bay.
