The city of San Francisco is preparing to unveil their latest project next week, the epic Transbay Terminal, also known as the Salesforce Transit Center. While the Salesforce Tower is a can’t-be-missed addition to the San Francisco skyline (whether you like it or not), the rooftop park addition at the Salesforce Transit Center is not as easily seen—unless you know it’s there, or work in the area.

 

One of the features of the new transit station is a 5.4 acre rooftop park that includes trails, an amphitheater for concerts, quiet spaces and over 600 trees. The park is said to rival the High Line in New York City. Some other great additions to the station include a gondola lift, the Children’s Play Gardens, a huge Grand Hall with shops and restaurants, and a state of the art environmentally-friendly bus deck with high-speed rails going all the way to Southern California.

The estimated 45 million yearly visitors will also be greeted by all new murals curated by local arts org ArtSpan and executed by 38 local artists and their team of volunteers. Those interested in volunteering in this massive undertaking this weekend can contact [email protected] to sign up for shifts.
