Notes
Survey number HAER CA-237
Building/structure dates: 1916 initial construction
Significance: As a rare surviving component of the historically significant Key System railway, the Key Pier Substation appears to be individually eligible for National Register listing under Criterion A at the local level of significance. Although the building's integrity of setting has been compromised by the removal of the Key Pier tracks and the tracks that originally ran to and across the Bay Bridge, the building appears to retain sufficient integrity of design, materials, feeling and association for National Register listing. The building is within the present state highway right-of-way, and the boundary of the eligible property includes only the building itself. The Key Pier Substation is also closely associated with the Bay Bridge, as an integral part of the bridge's former rail facilities. The building therefore appears to also be a contributing component of the Bay Bridge, a property which was determined eligible for National Register listing in 1983.
