South Downtown Design & Activation Plan (Soda)

The South Downtown Design and Activation Plan will provide a framework for designing, implementing and managing the public realm in the emergent neighborhood surrounding the Transbay Terminal and Rincon Hill. The plan area covers a quadrant of roughly 30 blocks of the city bounded by Market Street, The Embarcadero, Bryant Street and 2nd Street and will be co-authored by our team at SF Planning and the East Cut Community Benefit District. (2015 - ongoing)

Context: To develop a comprehensive vision for the design, implementation and stewardship of the public spaces within San Francisco's South Downtown (composed of the Transbay and Rincon Hill Planning areas), and in doing so, create implementable designs that foster vibrant streets and open spaces, support high performing transit operations, and encourage active transportation choices for the people who live, work and visit the district.

Role: Co-manage project; coordinate agencies; draft streets; organize and prep for community outreach; graphics & map-making. (SF Planning)
