transbay transit center rooftop park

Located 75 feet above San Francisco's streets will be the 5-acre Transbay Transit Center Rooftop Park. The park is the centerpiece of the winning competition entry by Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects and PWP Landscape Architecture.

The park will act as a regional destination for visitors to San Francisco and an amenity for the nearby local residents. The park will feature a central plaza, a variety of planted botanical gardens, an amphitheater for performances and a children's playground.

The park plays a pivitol role in the facility's water reuse goals. Rainwater will infiltrate through the park's soil and be collected and reused in the facility. The park will also feature a graywater garden which will filter the facility's graywater prior to its reuse.

Work performed at PWP Landscape Architecture, in collaboration with Pellli Clarke Pelli Architects, Adamson Associates ArchitectsARUP, WSP Flack + Kurtz EngineersThorton Tomasetti Structural Engineers, Shen Milsom & Wilke, Webcor Builders and URS.
