2023 UPDATE: The San Francisco Recreation and Park Department completed the 900 Innes Remediation Project in the Bayview Hunters Point neighborhood of San Francisco in July 2022. The City held a groundbreaking ceremony in September 2022 for the next phase of the project, funded by others, which will include creating vegetated marsh and buffer habitat, installing trails and other public access amenities, and restoring a historic cottage on the site for use as a visitor center.
2022 UPDATE: Since breaking ground in June 2021, the 900 Innes Remediation Project has completed soil removal within the tidal area and the demolition and removal of the concrete wharves. Remediation of the upland area is 90% complete.
This project will enable the City and County of San Francisco, Recreation, and Park Department to remediate and restore soft-bottom intertidal and subtidal habitat, restore wetland functions, improve ecosystem services, and enhance recreation at the 900 Innes site, which the City, through its Recreation and Park Department (SFRPD), acquired in 2014, and is located in the Bayview-Hunter’s Point neighborhood.
This work represents the first phase of a multi-phased redevelopment plan for the 900 Innes and India Basin Shoreline Park properties.
This project will reduce pollutant loads at the site to allow for larger restoration and redevelopment, as well as ensure the safety of future park users, visitors, construction workers, and ecological receptors. The overall vision for the 900 Innes/India Basin redevelopment, following this current proposed, and subsequent phases, will result in much needed parks, clean waterfront, and public access for the Bayview Hunters Point neighborhood, a disadvantaged community as identified via CalEPA’s Enviroscreen tool
