Treasure Island Cops the Ferry Building's Style

New, 3 comments

In a new twist to the city's redevelopment plans for Treasure Island, the four-story, marble floored, 150,000 square foot ferry terminal will be relocated to a spot in front of a crescent-shaped building constructed for the International Exposition in 1939, and designed to be used as an airport terminal thereafter. (Bonus fact: "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade" was filmed there, in part. Swoon.) Mimicking San Francisco's Ferry Building, shops and restaurants are planned for the space, no doubt as a way to mask affordable housing units draw tourists to the island, which will also see 60,000 new housing units as part of the city's grand scheme, 30% of which will be marketed as affordable.
