Project highlights

The Treasure Island/Yerba Buena Island Development Project is creating a new San Francisco neighborhood, including homes offered at below-market rates, multiple public transportation connections, extensive parks and open space, public art, hotels, restaurants and more.

Housing and urban design

The Islands are growing into a community of up to 8,000 homes, including homes at below-market rates and approximately 27% affordable housing in total.

The project’s design grows out of Treasure and Yerba Buena Islands’ remarkable natural setting and rich history. It is oriented around a progressive design philosophy reflecting San Francisco’s commitment to sustainability

Public transportation options, including ferry, will continue to expand, and innovative policies implemented to maximize transit use including household transit passes, ramp metering and tolling.

The Project celebrated the official launch of Treasure Island ferry service on March 1, 2022
