This month the BPC Sustainable Waterfronts Committee hosted a comprehensive briefing on the mixed-use waterfront development in Point Molate in Richmond. Cox Castle & Nicholson LLP attorney and BPC member Linda Klein and project architect Nicole Hammon presented on the design and permitting status of the project and other lessons learned about the process. The project will include 1,450 new residential units, commercial businesses, and 70 percent of the site will remain as open space, providing unique opportunities for outdoor recreation along the San Francisco shoreline. The project will also refurbish an existing pier to increase public access to the bay and promote water transit access to the burgeoning waterfront neighborhood. BPC has been a vocal advocate of strengthening the region’s water transit network to support transit-oriented and sustainable development on the waterfront.
