An integral part of the Transbay Project includes the creation of a new neighborhood surrounding the Transit Center. The Transbay Redevelopment Plan will transform vacant state-owned abandoned freeway property in downtown San Francisco into a thriving transit-oriented neighborhood.
Adopted by the City of San Francisco in June 2005, the Redevelopment Plan will facilitate the development of nearly 2,600 new homes (35 percent of which will be affordable), 3 million square feet of new office and commercial space and 100,000 square feet of retail. The buildings will include townhouses, low- and mid-rise buildings and slender high-rise towers spaced apart to provide sunlight to proposed new plazas, parks and widened sidewalks.
The Project Area is about 40 acres and is bounded by Mission Street in the north, Main Street in the east, Folsom Street in the south and Second Street in the west. Folsom Street will be the centerpiece of this new neighborhood and will feature widened sidewalks with cafes, markets and views of the San Francisco Bay.
