Salesforce Transit Center | Fremont and Natoma, San Francisco, CA
Submitted by the Event Organizer
Running just adjacent to – and connected with – the iconic Salesforce Tower, the tallest skyscraper in San Francisco, the Salesforce Transit Center is a unique structure anchoring a new neighborhood and connecting the city with its suburbs and beyond. It sits in the heart of one of the city’s original residential neighborhoods that was transformed into a center of light industry for more than a century. Today, it occupies the site of a 1937 transit terminal, but instead of factories and warehouses, it is surrounded by the tallest and newest buildings in the city.
Dubbed the “Grand Central of the West,” the Center is far more than an inter-modal transit hub – for buses, light rail, commuter trains and planned high-speed rail. It functions as an elevated urban park open to all, in one of the last structures designed by renowned architect César Pelli. Join us on a leisurely stroll of the stunning public spaces in this tour-de-force of post-modernist design, to learn about its features both functional and fantastic. We will tour its soaring Grand Hall, experience its multimedia public art and a “secret garden,” visit the center’s renowned rooftop park of lush gardens, and take in unmatched skyline views.
Meet in Salesforce Plaza on the South West corner of Mission and Fremont street, by the sky gondola.
