THEMA: SAN FRANCISCO - NEUES CRUISE SHIP TERMINAL

SAN FRANCISCO - NEUES CRUISE SHIP TERMINAL 17 Dez 2011 09:20 #27521

Hallo zusammen!

Wie Seatrade Insider berichtet, hat man sich in San Francisco darauf geeinigt ein neues, modernes Cruise-Ship Terminal zu errichten.

Das neue Terminal wird am Pier 27 errichtet.

Hier einige Details:

The new cruise terminal will be named in honor of the late James R. Herman, former port commissioner and president of the International Longshore and Warehouse Union.

Dean Brown, evp corporate services for Princess Cruises, said his company, a long-time port customer, looks forward to using the new terminal at Pier 27. It will provide passengers with a more efficient and comfortable experience ‘befitting a city like San Francisco,’ he added.

As a result of today’s approval, in the first quarter of 2012 groundbreaking will commence on construction of the 88,000sq ft terminal and 2.5-acre public park, the Northeast Wharf Plaza, at Piers 27-29, a 14.8 acre site located on The Embarcadero at Bay Street. The new terminal on Pier 27 will serve as the primary cruise facility, while the cruise terminal on Pier 35 will be used as a secondary berth.

The terminal will be appointed with modern passenger amenities, will be able to handle the largest classes of cruise ships and will provide shore power.

‘This is a great day in the history of the Port of San Francisco,’ said Port Commission president Kimberly Brandon, who added that San Francisco will ‘finally showcase a world class, state-of-the-art cruise terminal that we can all be proud of.’

The project has a long history which has been refined and improved in collaboration with the city and the community, particularly with the inclusion of the Northeast Wharf Plaza. The opportunity to integrate the cruise terminal with the 34th America’s Cup adds to the creation of another destination along San Francisco’s waterfront.

‘This new terminal will be designed to meet modern ship and operational requirements of the cruise industry and provide an appropriate, welcoming gateway to one of the world’s most beautiful cruise ship ports,’ said Joe D’Alessandro, president and ceo of San Francisco Travel.

During times throughout the year when cruise ships do not call at Pier 27, the terminal design provides for approximately 60,000sq ft of space for shared uses to generate revenues from special events, conferences and other public or private gatherings.

Es ist gut, wenn sich unter der Golden Gate einiges tut. Eine wirklich tolle Stadt, bald auch von See aus attraktiver zu erreichen... :laugh:

Keep on Cruisin
