First phase on San Francisco Cruise Terminal Complete
Yesterday, officials in San Francisco, California celebrated the completion of the first phase of construction on the city's new, purpose-built cruise terminal.
Organisers of the America's Cup will be the first tenants in the two-storey building, which will serve as the primary headquarters of the popular sailing races between July and September. Following the regatta, construction will resume in order to ensure the terminal will be ready to welcome cruise ships beginning in 2014. The site is also set to include a 2.5 acre public park and the terminal itself is anticipated to handle up to 2,600 passengers at a time.
