“The Hub” Community Workshop
April 13, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm PDT
Did you know that the intersection of Market, Valencia, Haight and Gough Streets was once known as The Hub? It got its name because of the location of where four streetcar lines met as they traveled across the City. The name eventually came to represent the surrounding neighborhood as well.
With the growing interest in the area and major transportation projects underway, The Market Street Hub Project, or The Hub, seeks to study ways to provide more affordable housing, improve transportation and create placemaking opportunities in the area immediately surrounding the intersection of Market Street and Van Ness Avenue and the neighborhood south of Market Street from Valencia Street to 11th Street.
The City’s 2008 Market & Octavia Area Plan envisioned the area as a high-density mixed-use residential neighborhood. This project seeks to build on this framework to increase public benefits for transportation, streets, housing, open space and the arts.
This first workshop will focus on land use, urban form and public benefits, and will build on initial ideas and comments we’ve heard from community members and neighborhood groups thus far. We will begin with a brief presentation followed by an open house and an opportunity to ask questions and provide feedback.
