Over 50% of the land in the proposed 8 Washington project is dedicated to recreation and public open space.
The project includes two new open space areas: The Jackson Commons and Pacific Park. The Jackson Commons would re-connect Jackson Street to the Embarcadero, opening views and pedestrian access to and from the waterfront. Pacific Park would connect Pacific Street to the Embarcadero, creating a vibrant and active waterfront park, with stunning views of the Bay and Treasure Island. This park would be further animated and secured with café seating and an interactive children's play area. Additionally, the Drumm Street Garden Walk would connect the Jackson Commons with the Pacific Park and would be expanded by 50% in width. In total, the project offers 30,000 square feet of new public open space which equates to more than the total area of Seawall Lot 351.
