Project Details

Spurred by the need to rezone the area adjacent to the future Central Subway in the South of Market Area (SOMA) so the land uses reflect actual demand as well as to support Senate Bill 375 which requires linking growth to transit in an effort to reduce emissions and finally, to coordinate the past and current efforts adjacent to the Central Corridor project area, the Central Corridor Plan articulates the land use and transportation concepts for the area bound by Market Street to Townsend Street and Second Street to Sixth Street. With the potential to add almost 12,000 residential units and approximately 47,000 jobs in this area, the transportation concepts reallocate right of way to reflect the shift in transportation to modes that will be most efficient and conducive to the land uses.

Highlights

  • Land use concepts allow for adding jobs and housing and more open space

  • Transportation concepts include widening sidewalks, opening crosswalks, adding mid-block crossings, and adding bike lanes and transit-only lanes
