Rapid development of the Transbay District delivered densely packed towers of new residential units into a neglected area of San Francisco’s SOMA district. Cultural programming for 123 Mission presents a strategic repositioning of the corridor spanning the interior of the block and corporate plaza to provide desperately needed open-air recreational infrastructure for new residents. Pools of light filled event spaces balance against a ribbon of pop-up retail storefront stalls, wireless hotspots, a well-lit garden, all-ages refreshments bar, and youth par course.
