Led by Fred Clarke of Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects, this evening’s panel will discuss the visionary Transbay Transit Center project and its potential to transform both downtown San Francisco and the Bay Area’s regional transportation system as a whole. The $4.2 billion project will replace the current Transbay Terminal at First and Mission streets in San Francisco with a modern regional transit hub connecting eight Bay Area counties and the State of California through 11 transit systems. The Transbay Transit Center will also create a neighborhood with new shops, homes, offices and neighborhood parks including a 5.4 acre public park on the roof of the bus and rail station.
