The Proposed Vision for Connecting SF and the City’s Future

February 3, 2018

The City’s proposed vision to guide the future planning and development of transportation in San Francisco is about to be formally released.

As we first reported last year, the “ConnectSF” project is a city-wide effort to both consolidate and coordinate all transportation-related planning efforts in the city as well as to improve the mobility of its residents, in-bound commuters and visitors.

The Draft Vision sees the city “[maintaining] its unique identity” while planning for “an out-migration of people who desire a more suburban environment or who prefer more localized or more laissez-faire governance over a strong central government” and allowing for San Francisco to double-down on becoming “a major employment hub and center for innovation.”

And the ConnectSF team is now aiming to secure formal buy-in from San Francisco’s Planning Commission and transportation agencies this spring in order to move forward with detailed transportation studies, planning and major land use decisions. We’ll keep you posted, connected and plugged-in.

Update: This map originally appeared on Curbed SF in 2017, but we’ve updated it for the new year.

San Francisco’s dense skyline is growing as the city anticipates the completion of some towers long under construction and the emerging profile of others underway.

To make the cut, a building must be eight or more stories when completed. Towers must have broken ground already or be on the verge of doing so within the next few months.

Here are the buildings poised to change the city’s skyline for good.

The top 10 issues facing the real estate industry in 2017
