Candlestick Point Tower Block 11A

San Francisco

Candlestick Point is a high rise, mixed use residential and retail project located on the expansive grounds of what was once Candlestick Park. This site that was once home to the San Francisco Giants and San Francisco 49ers stadium and parking lot and is now intended to be a master planned development to meet the needs of the city’s burgeoning population. This development will include 14,000 SF of retail space, 547,000 SF of residential space, and 12,000 SF of amenities. Candlestick Point Block 11A will be an urban landmark and an integral part of an emerging neighborhood.

Walter P Moore’s role was to assist the architects and the client to develop a strategy to best achieve market rate parking for both residents and visitors within a very small subterranean footprint. The parking area was designed to utilize automated parking (which included provisions for electrical vehicle charging) in order maximize the parking count. The automated parking units were placed alongside the conventional parking which was needed for larger vehicles and handicap users unable to fit otherwise. Walter P Moore interfaced directly with the automated parking vendor to ensure that the applicable code requirements were met and that the vehicular circulation of the project worked optimally. As the liaison between the client, vendors and architect of the building, Walter P Moore had a vital role in making the project usable and economically viable.
