Eagle Plaza More Visible

A bit more of Eagle Plaza has been revealed, as some of the construction equipment is removed.  You can now enjoy a portion of the broad sidewalk on the Eastern side of the Plaza:

Soon, we expect to see some landscaping added.

According to the sign on the front of the new 1532 Harrison Street building, below-market rental units will be available soon.  (Apply online by May 5, 2021 at 5:00 PM, at housing.sfgov.org)


You can even peer inside to see a part of what will, perhaps, be a cafe of some kind.  ( I originally thought it would be a restaurant called “La Cantina”, but I have since learned that that is just the name of the manufacturer of those nice glass windows.)

If you think you might want to live in the new building, you can learn more at https://www.liveathq.com/ .

Keep your eye on the Plaza!

Commemorative Sidewalk Plaques Project Moves Forward

An important part of our work is helping residents, workers and visitors appreciate the history and culture of the District’s buildings and streets.

We are working on a project to install bronze plaques at key historic locations around SoMa, in cooperation with the SF Arts Commission, Public Works, the SFMTA, and with funding provided by local developers.  You can read about it in the September 2020 Bay Area Reporter article, easily viewable here.

Resolution authorizing the plaques has now been unanimously approved by the San Francisco Board of Supervisors (as reported in this article  from the Bay Area Reporter).

Additional design reviews and approvals are still required.  Your presence and comments (via Zoom, or by email in advance) will be much appreciated.  Please consider signing up for our SOMA Action Network so we can let you know when we need that help. 

If all goes well, the first plaques should be installed as part of the Department of Public Works’ upgrade to Folsom Street, hopefully starting later this year.

Meanwhile, we invite you to view this presentation about the plaque project.
