Touring Transbay

From SPUR

The Transbay Transit Center Project, the first phase of which is scheduled to be completed in 2017, will create a new 1-million-square-foot transit center with above-grade bus routing, retail uses and underground levels to serve both Caltrain and high-speed rail, all topped by 5.4-acre park. Accompanying towers are also planned to add housing, office and shopping around the transit center. Join us for a tour of the project site and envision the future of this neighborhood-building project.

This event is generously sponsored by Kaiser Permanente.
