Increasingly, interim urban design projects are proposed alongside permanent capital projects in district public space plans. The Yerba Buena Community Benefit District developed a Streetlife Plan which calls for a variety of treatments at a number of different scales. This District in the heart of downtown hosts a thriving cultural, institutional, office, and residential mix; creating heavy demand for comfortable and accessible open spaces. This tour will showcase Annie Alley Plaza, which was created by closing a small street to automobile traffic. Other relevant projects will include the District’s Parkmobiles and Mobile Bicycle Corral.
