Doxa Orange right arrow Rebar’s Pavement to Parks plan featured in Streetsblog

Our sketches and plans for what we’re calling Showplace Triangle were featured yesterday in a great post by Matthew Roth over at Streetsblog SF.

Rebar was chosen for the Lower Potrero site of the city’s new Pavement to Parks plan, and will donate its time and labor to turn a redundant road near Wolfe’s and Axis Cafes into a new type of communal public space. A street no longer but also not a park, the strip of road on 8th street between 16th and Wisconsin will be transformed to cater to the neighborhood, offering plaza-style seating, greenery, windbreaks, bike parking and an air of playfulness.

Check out the article to read about the program and what Ed Reiskin, Director of the Department of Public Works thinks of the whole thing. We’ll be updating the blog with more on the process and development of this rapid-pace project, so stay tuned: street closure will happen in late August, with installation to be completed by Labor Day of this year!
