SFRPD and The Trust for Public Land, sponsored by Build Inc., conducted a “Design Ideas Competition” for the future design of the combined 900 Innes and India Basin Shoreline Park sites. 

Five talented landscape architecture teams submitted design ideas, and after a juried review, Seattle-based Gustafson Guthrie Nichol (GGN) was declared the winning firm.

The Design Ideas Competition built on extensive stakeholder input from the task force and the community at large, and was guided by the technical information contained in the India Basin Waterfront Study. 

A jury composed of design professionals and community representatives, with the oversight of the design competition advisor, reviewed the design idea submissions and selected the winning landscape architecture team.
