Growing Upper Market

From SPUR:

In 2008 San Francisco adopted the Market and Octavia Area Plan, which created new transit-oriented zoning and design guidelines for the area and simultaneously completed further design guidelines for Upper Market. Now many projects, including 1960 Market, 2001 Market and 2299 Market, are on the boards or under construction. Join representatives from the San Francisco Planning Department for a walking tour of these exciting transformations.

This event is generously sponsored by Kaiser Permanente.
