SPUR Forum: Visioning the Southeast Waterfront

From SPUR:

San Francisco expects a significant increase in waterfront visitors during America’s Cup 34 in 2013. This year’s Piero N. Patri fellow, Alexa Bush, has developed a program to engage visitors and neighbors with a visioning project about the San Francisco southeast waterfront. Drawing upon the findings of past Patri Fellowship projects she has spent the summer studying the history and development of the southeast waterfront and analyzing opportunities to increase public access and awareness to further San Francisco’s Blue Greenway projects, in order to create an informational, web-based, multi-media tool that serves to entice visitors and neighbors to better understand the potential future of the southeast waterfront.
