Craneway Pavilion is a 45,000-sq-ft world-class, sustainably-designed event, concert and production facility centrally located in one of the planet’s most iconic destinations. Set on 25 waterfront acres, Craneway Pavilion delivers an awe-inspiring panorama of the Bay, the San Francisco skyline and surrounding environs—matched only by the inventive programming and infrastructure options available inside.
Craneway Pavilion offers the perfect Bay Area destination for gatherings of all occasions. The spacious and open design together with its picturesque location make this the ideal setting for any project – film and photo shoots, art performances and public festivals, or any celebration - a wedding, bar/bat mitzvah or holiday party, as well as a corporate meeting, concert or speaking engagement.
As state-of-the-art as it is historic, Craneway Pavilion is a 45,000-square-foot facility in an award-winning, architecturally significant Ford Assembly Plant building dating back to 1931, with an adjoining 20,000 square-foot open-air patio, seamlessly blending indoor and outdoor spaces. Additional conference space with break out rooms available.
Craneway’s atmosphere and amenities set the stage for special occasions, meetings and cultural highlights—of every size and every stripe—as unforgettable as San Francisco Bay Area itself.
In Spring 2012 the Craneway Pavilion added a 40,000-sq-ft conference center facility with a spacious general session area, 4 separate breakout rooms, kitchen area. Located on the second floor of the Ford Assembly Building, a minute walk from the main Pavilion, featuring the same industrial look and architectural style. ADA accessible (elevator).
Craneway Pavilion is designed for maximum sustainability, combining 21st century’s most forward-thinking building standards and green technologies with the structure’s original environmentally friendly features- the Albert Kahn’s south-facing sawtooth roof design, including more than 40,000 panes of glass fills the building with natural light and supports a one-megawatt rooftop solar power plant.
The hand-crafted wood-slab tables and bar tops used in the Craneway Pavilion and Assemble Restaurant are made from salvaged white oak trees. We use fresh, local, seasonal and organic ingredients whenever possible in the Assemble restaurant, as well as eco-friendly disposables and cleaning solutions in our catering.
Craneway offers full production services and has established a network of vendors for all your specialty needs and equipment rentals.
Craneway has an excellent relationship with both the City of Richmond and Police & Fire Departments’ officials to assist with any permits and planning for your event if such are required.
