The Plan

In 2011, The City and County of San Francisco and its Treasure Island Development Authority (TIDA) unanimously approved a plan by Treasure Island Community Development (TICD) to redevelop both Treasure Island and Yerba Buena Island.

The plan will create an entirely new community of 18,000 people, from all walks of life. Twenty-seven percent, or more than 2,100 homes, are designated as affordable. The award-winning plan was created by a design team led by Skidmore Owings and Merrill, and CMG Landscape Architects.

Development Phases

Development is proceeding in phases. There are four Major Phases comprised of eight sub-phases. Initial housing construction has begun on Yerba Buena Island, with Treasure Island to follow shortly. The first homes are expected to be completed in 2021.

The first phase includes up to 2,100 homes, both market-rate and affordable and construction of a ferry terminal – paid entirely by TICD –beginning in 2019. TICD expects to begin limited service as soon as 2021, with regional service beginning as the island’s population grows.

Phase 1 also includes two affordable housing developments: One is being developed by Chinatown Community Development Center and Swords for Plowshares, and will house 105 formerly homeless veterans. This project will break ground in early 2020. The second is being developed by Mercy Housing and will include 135 units for low- income families and people relocating from the existing housing on the north end of Treasure Island.

Implementation of the soil improvement program and construction of new roads and utilities is underway.
