The Boiler House Restaurant is the gastronomic result of the preservation of the original building’s heating equipment, which now flanks the single-slab recovered timber tables and the bar. Step next door into the Rosie the Riveter Museum to learn about the area’s manufacturing heyday during the Second World War.
The Ford Assembly Building’s southern side opens directly to the Bay Trail, which rings the entire region. A ferry terminal near the project offers a commuter ferry to San Francisco as well. The massive project is part of a larger effort to revitalize a community that was left without many resources after factories closed up shop generations ago. The project is also a forward-thinking enterprise that is anchored in sustainable design, clean technology, and manufacturing industries.
