On August 6, 2015, San Francisco Planning and Urban Research (SPUR) will host an evening forum about the process that has shaped the urban fabric of the Transbay neighborhood and how its architects are creating new precedents for large-scale projects in San Francisco. At the event, SOM Design Partner Craig Hartman will discuss the development with Jason Long of OMA, as well as Maia Small and Joshua Switzky of the San Francisco Planning Department.
More than 10 years ago, SOM worked with the San Francisco Redevelopment Agency to develop a master plan for the area in downtown San Francisco now known as the Transbay neighborhood. That vision is now becoming a reality with construction underway to create a “Grand Central Station of the West” and an authentic, transit-friendly urban realm.
Today, SOM is collaborating with Fougeron Architecture and Powell & Partners Architects to develop Transbay Redevelopment Project Block 9 into a vertical community that strengthens the public realm of the existing neighborhood, with over 500 units of market rate and affordable housing, mixed-use retail, and public open space.
