The 3.5-acre block where the temporary Transbay Terminal was located has been transformed into a new outdoor community and entertainment destination called The Crossing at East Cut. It opened earlier this month with the aim to bring people together with fun activities and support neighborhood wellness.
Spearheaded by the not-for-profit, The East Cut Community Benefit District (East Cut CBD), which worked for three years to activate the site. The organization provides cleaning, safety, and maintenance of parks and open spaces in San Francisco's District 6. The design process for The Crossing at East Cut included a partnership with District 6 Supervisor Matt Haney's office to survey more than 1,200 neighbors, asking respondents about their preferences for on-site programming. - https://www.sfstation.com/2021/09/28/new-outdoor-space-the-crossing-at-east-cut-opens-in-downtown-sf/
"This year has shown us just how essential access to outdoor space is for the well-being of our communities and the overall development of our city," said Mayor Breed. "This beautifully designed site will provide a safe and engaging space for both community members and visitors of our city to get outside and enjoy the vibrancy of our downtown core."
"There's been a multi-year push by residents to activate the site, so we felt obligated to open as soon as possible and add programming over the ensuing months," said Real Active's Kipp Kjeldgaard. "Given the impact of COVID-19 on businesses, opening quickly is also important to help local entrepreneurs and lend a hand in bringing workers and visitors back to the City of San Francisco."
"By partnering with local businesses and community organizations to provide diverse and engaging programming, this exciting new project will advance downtown San Francisco's recovery and truly be a place for all to feel welcome. We invite everyone to join us in celebrating all that makes San Francisco a world-class city; great food, music, activities and a place for all to gather in a truly unique setting."
