In a former life, this place powered San Francisco, enabling it to grow into the beautiful and unique city it is today. Decades after being decommissioned, Power Station is powering up again to make a different impact: as an activated mixed-use waterfront development.
View Power Station’s History
Eye View:The Future
In addition to the sustainable reuse of existing structures, Power Station is delivering over $860M in community benefits, impacting local lives through hundreds of affordable housing units, historic rehabilitation for cultural preservation, thousands of linear feet of public infrastructure, and acres of parks for everyone’s enjoyment.
As a certified California Leadership Development Project, Power Station is a carbon-neutral development committed to an all-electric future. Our sustainable community supports deeply held San Francisco values by improving air quality, conserving water, and supporting human health. How? On-site solar generation, passive heating and cooling, water recycling, stormwater management, ecosystem improvement, and meaningful carbon sequestration.
Power Station is a collaboration between local and global leaders in design and placemaking. Besides being climate change ready, all buildings and open spaces are created specifically for flexibility in future uses, indoor/outdoor connection, and collaboration. The result is innovative architecture, infrastructure, and landscapes designed to work together for multi-generational possibilities.
POWER IN PRESERVATION
Historic buildings transformed through visionary architecture combine the past’s industrial legacy, scale, and drama with today’s warmth and usability. By preserving their embodied energy from materials and construction, Power Station’s oldest buildings become our most sustainable.
Instead of electricity, Power Station is now generating creative energy as an extension of a truly dynamic community, inspired by diverse global perspectives, serendipitous connections, and a naturally and recreationally activated waterfront.
