A noontime forum, held at SPUR, 312 Sutter St. (at Grant), Fifth Floor, from 12:30 to 1:30 pm. We are located close to the Powell St. BART station and several Muni lines.
Feel free to bring a lunch. SPUR Forums are open to the public, free for members and $5 for non-members.
A 1200-foot “slender, graceful tower” highlights the winning proposal by Pelli Clark Pelli Architects and Hines for the Transbay Transit Center. The center itself will house the city’s downtown high-speed and commuter rail station and the transbay bus terminal, and be capped by a 5.4-acre city park, a green roof that is only part of the building’s sustainability features. Paul Paradis, Hines Senior Vice President, will present the proposal in detail and answer your questions about this newest, perhaps grandest, addition to San Francisco’s downtown skyline and streetscape.
