National Council of Jewish Women Presents

The Redevelopment of Treasure Island

Wednesday, February 27th

Donner Room at the Event Center

Coffee and cake will be served at 9:30 am

Program starting at 10:30am

The presentation addresses mitigation concepts for the challenges that face the proposed redevelopment of Treasure Island. The island is man made and was created in 1936-37 for the World’s Fair. It was constructed by placing approximately 30 million cubic yards of dredged sand fill over a sand shoal. The City of San Francisco has promoted a self-sustaining community comprising approximately 8,000 homes in mid- rise towers, retail,historic structures, hotel, boat slips and restaurants. It will have 300 acres of open space, organic farming, tidal marshes, parkland, a wind farm and a ferry terminal.






Uri Eliahu, as president of ENGEO, will be leading the redevelopment of Treasure Island. Under his leadership, ENGEO has become the consultant of choice for urban-rise, major waterfront development, master-planned and mixed-use development. URI is a registered Geotechnical Engineer in California and a registered Civil Engineer in California and Nevada. He is a leading expert on entitlement and regulatory permitting processes. A recipient of multiple awards, in 2009 he was selected Civil Engineer of the Year.
