Recycled Runways & Repurposed Materials

FivePoint™ will recycle or reuse more than 90 percent of the three million tons of concrete from the demolition of the four runways at the former El Toro Marine Corps Air Station. Moreover, everything that could be salvaged from the former buildings on the base – washers, dryers, cabinets, windows, doors, etc. – was removed and repurposed elsewhere. Many of the salvaged materials, including the runways and metal from fighter jet landing pads, are being turned into concrete or shade structures at Great Park Neighborhoods®.

Sharestream

FivePoint has also reused old historical elements in new ways to connect with the community. The Great Park Neighborhoods’ restored 1972 Sharestream is one example. Measuring 27 feet, weighing 4,750 pounds, and crafted with riveted aluminum, the Sharestream’s look is reminiscent of the military aircraft that once frequented the runways of the former air base. Today, it serves as a traveling billboard, information hub, storytelling nexus, and community connector.

Historic Structures & Heritage Park

Along the original shoreline, opportunities exist to develop historical and cultural narratives. This will be accomplished through the preservation and reuse of historic structures, implementing wayfinding and artwork installations that tell the story of the sites, and the creation of a Heritage Park at The San Francisco Shipyard™.

The Gantry Crane

The Gantry crane at The San Francisco Shipyard was erected in 1947. With a 730-foot runway and the ability to lift naval equipment of up to a million pounds, it was the largest crane in the world when constructed. Today, The Gantry crane remains a symbol of not only The San Francisco Shipyard but also the San Francisco skyline, and will remain a fixture as the community evolves into a vibrant residential and commercial district—a true reflection of old meets new.

Water Conservation

The comprehensive water conservation programs at Newhall Ranch® are planned to include a water reclamation plant capable of recycling millions of gallons per day. When built, this plant will help FivePoint fulfill its commitment to use reclaimed water for irrigation of pubic open spaces, parks, and commercial properties. In addition, FivePoint will integrate state-of-the-art water-saving smart controllers throughout landscaping on slopes and community areas within each Village.
