Come and learn about the TRANSBAY Terminal, San Francisco – a world-class example of high-density transit-oriented development. TRANSBAY is set to transform 40 acres of vacant state owned downtown San Francisco lands into a vibrant mixed-use landmark development of 2,600 residences, 3 M SF of office and commercial space, 100,000 SF of retail all interconnected with walkable  plazas, parks and public urban spaces.

Attendees will gain insights through our panel of experts and discussion:

  • How will TOD shape the growth, diversity, form of development and richness of experience for the City in 2050?
  • What are best practices that can make TOD projects more successfully integrate into their broader community?
  • What kinds of public and private initiatives are required to enable truly innovative and successful transit-oriented development?
