Regional group will discuss plans for Ferry Plaza next Monday 

The proposal to overhaul the Ferry Plaza, a public access point east of the Ferry Building that has been largely been ignored by pedestrians, will be discussed by a regional body next week.

Under a plan being mulled over by the Bay Conservation and Development Commission (BCDC) and the Port of San Francisco, the new Ferry Plaza would feature a 12,500-square-foot public promenade and an 8,600-square-foot wooden deck designed to bring in foot traffic.

The remaining 30,000 square feet of the Plaza would be designated for a variety of different uses, including the creation of 62 new parking spots, temporary valet parking services, and hosting the Ferry Building’s weekly Farmer’s Market (parking would not be allowed in the lot during the Saturday event).

The BCDC’s Design Review Board Meeting will hold talks on the proposed plans for the Ferry Plaza next Monday at 6:30 p.m. at the agency’s headquarters on 50 California Street.
