The dynamism of Yerba Buena is driving a renewed focus on its future as a series of key projects for the district move forward. With transit improvements such as the Transbay Terminal and Central Subway underway and a street-friendly expansion of the Moscone Center and the Yerba Buena Street Life Plan reimagining the public realm, a neighborhood long dominated by car is set to adapt for a more sustainable future. Join Josh Switzky of the Planning Department, Kevin Conger of CMG Landscape Architecture and staff from the Mayor’s office to examine the future of this burgeoning district.

Sponsored by the Yerba Buena Community Fund.
