"Learn about two innovative ideas for “interim uses” for vacant lots in San Francisco. One concept, called “Proxy,” developed by envelope A + D would install portable retail, restaurant and gallery structures on two lots along Octavia Boulevard. Another, proposed by the Hayes Valley Neighborhood Association, calls for a community farm on a 1.5-acre lot where the Central Freeway used to touch down. In support of these proposals, the City is proposing a new piece of legislation that would encourage land owners to offer up their vacant lots for temporary, public-oriented uses. With Douglas Burnham of envelope A+D, Aaron Hulme of Suppenkuche (a “Proxy” participant), Jay Rosenberg of Hayes Valley Farm and Rich Hillis of the Mayor’s Office of Workforce and Economic Development."
