As part of Mayor Breed’s Downtown Recovery Plan, the temporary activation of the approximately 3.5-acre site in the Transbay neighborhood will help revitalize San Francisco’s downtown area and support the City’s economic recovery.

The Crossing provides opportunities for community members to gather outdoors and support local businesses safely. Today, September 10, the Crossing opens with a family-friendly beer garden, food trucks, soccer fields, and a ground mural in the easily accessible and freshly designed space.

ECLP, a partnership between the East Cut Community Benefit District, Street Soccer USA, Real Active, and Nestory Park, will ultimately offer fitness space, an outdoor cinema, food and retail kiosks, a community marketplace, play areas and flex space for events, classes, and other community-serving uses.

The Crossing allows local businesses to operate outdoors and provides a space that promotes community health and wellness and space for community members to gather safely in the Transbay neighborhood seven days a week.
