In 2014, the City acquired the 900 Innes property, which is adjacent to the existing India Basin Shoreline Park and India Basin Shoreline Open Space. Together with India Basin Shoreline Park, the City plans to design and build a new, world-class 10-acre park that will provide local residents with direct access to parks, open space and new recreational opportunities.
The landscape architecture firm of Gustafson Guthrie Nichol (GGN) was selected as the winning firm from the India Basin Waterfront Parks Design Ideas Competition to lead the Concept Design for 900 Innes / India Basin Shoreline Park.
GGN is based in Seattle, Washington and is the recipient of the 2017 ASLA National Landscape Architecture Firm Award. Recent and current work includes the Lurie Garden in Chicago’s Millennium Park, National Museum of African American History and Culture, CityCenterDC, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation Campus, and Seattle's Pike-Pine Renaissance Streets Plan. GGN was the recipient of the Smithsonian’s Cooper-Hewitt National Design Award for Landscape Architecture in 2011. The firm’s project awards include ASLA National Awards of Excellence, ASLA and AIA Honor Awards for Design, Tucker Design Awards, and Great Places Awards from the Environmental Design Research Association.
The GGN concept design team included Magnusson Klemencic Associates (MKA), civil engineer specializing in water resource strategies; Rana Creek, ecological restoration designer; Greenlee and Associates, horticulturalist specializing in meadow design; Turnbull Griffin Haesloop Architects, historic preservation architects; and Alta Planning + Design, transportation planners. TPL managed the concept design effort, which was funded by a $500,000 grant from the California Coastal Conservancy.
The inspired park design is comprised of six zones – The Neighborhood Edge, the Historic Shorewalk, The Marineway, The Sage Slopes, the March Edge and The Boatyard. The park design also includes a significant segment of the Bay Trail. (Please see Exhibit A: Concept Design for the India Basin Park Project)
