The competition will seek to bring forward designs to reinvigorate the pier head and turn it once more into a major attraction for both tourists and residents.
Designers will be challenged to develop the pier head in a manner that builds on the town’s cultural attractions and also makes the most of its important heritage.”

“If you look at the Transbay Neighborhood that’s in redevelopment,
