Named for James R. Herman, longtime Port Commissioner and labor leader, Pier 27 Cruise Terminal is the largest Port investment since the San Francisco Harbor Commission constructed the seawall, historic bulkhead buildings, and finger piers over 100 years ago. The new terminal and plaza transformed Pier 27 from an underused, view-blocking warehouse to one of San Francisco’s civic jewels. The facility provides the City with an opportunity for transportation, employment, exploration, and recreation at a site that also is a premier event venue. Public access includes the 2½-acre Cruise Terminal Plaza, which allows visitors and residents to get close to the ocean-going ships berthed adjacent to the plaza. 


The terminal has garnered numerous awards -- from civic recognition to awards based on design and implementation. Below is a list of several awards the Port has received since opening the terminal: 

  • Port of the Year Finalist Commendation from Seatrade
  • San Francisco Business Times 2015 “Best Public Infrastructure” Award
  • SPUR’s “Good Government” Team Project Award -- For managing, designing, financing and project implementation to create a LEED-certified, world-class cruise terminal. 
  • Outstanding Airports & Ports Project by San Francisco American Society of Civil Engineers
