Paving the way for 34th AMERICA’S CUP: Breaking Ground & Bringing Jobs to SF

February 2, 2012


San Francisco is in full swing preparing for the 34th America’s Cup in 2013!

A gathering crowd watched, SF Mayor Ed Lee, break ground yesterday at Pier 27.  The event marked the beginning of construction on the highly anticipated Port of San Francisco’s James R. Herman Cruise Terminal.  With the rising number of cruise ships set to visit SF and the upcoming America’s Cup, it became clear the city desperately needed a world class destination to host them.  Positioned between Fisherman’s Wharf and the Ferry Building, Pier 27 was considered the perfect place to construct this new terminal.  And with Pier 23 Cafe right next door we look forward to welcoming these new visitors with open arms… in true San Francisco style!

The new construction is one of many the city is undertaking to get ready for the preeminent sailing event.  The projects are committed to adding aesthetic and economic value to the city that will last beyond the America’s Cup Series.  They also promise to bring jobs and more opportunities to our local tradesmen and waterfront businesses.  As a longtime SF waterfront restaurant, that sounds good to us!
