In 2004, Parcel A, approximately 76 acres, was transferred to the City of San Francisco and is not considered as part of the proposed federal action. The new proposed federal action is a change in reuse from, and represents an amendment to, the original proposed Hunters Point Redevelopment Plan, as addressed by the Navy in the ‘‘Final EIS for the Disposal and Reuse of Hunters Point Shipyard’’ (March 2000). The Navy is the action proponent for the new proposal, which is also a component of the Bayview Waterfront Project being addressed in an Environmental Impact Report by the Redevelopment Agency of the City and County of San Francisco and the Planning Department of the City and County of San Francisco. The purpose of and need for the proposed action is to dispose of surplus federal property at Hunters Point Shipyard which was closed in accordance with the Defense Base Closure and Realignment for subsequent reuse.

The Stadium Plan Alternative includes a mixed-use community comprising 2,500 new residential units, 125,000 square feet of retail space, 2,000,000 square feet of research and development (R&D) space, 250 acres of parks and recreational open space, and civic and community uses.
