    Setting up shop: How Team Oracle USA’s headquarters in the West End could look for the 35th America’s Cup


Plans for Team Oracle’s America’s Cup headquarters have been submitted for approval, including a master plan hinting at possible future projects.

The application, submitted by ACBDA, focuses on Team Oracle’s base, which will take up about 7.2 acres on the northern side of the South Basin dock.

Included on the site will be four new buildings to house boats and sails, two tents, seven containers, a 160-foot crane, an ancillary building to house fibre-optic infrastructure, and two floating docks.

According to the plan, an existing structure on the property would be adapted into shower and toilet facilities.

While the application was placed online at the Department of Planning website, as of Friday the physical application also included a layout of event marinas, dated January 20, which as of yesterday did not appear online. The layout suggests possible future developments in Dockyard linked to the 2017 America’s Cup, including other marina structures.

The document shows two team bases next to Team Oracle — Sweden’s Artemis Racing Team and a second, unspecified team — while another three team bases are earmarked for reclaimed land inside the South Basin’s arm.

Also included on the document are two marina structures to the southwest of the basin’s arm, and marinas inside Kings Wharf and Heritage Wharf. An entertainment stage in the North camber slipway is also listed, while parking and utility storage are shown on Boaz Island Field.
